Abrasive flow machining (AFM) passes a mixture of abrasive grain and a high-viscosity carrier media through a part's inner diameter (ID) or internal openings. AFM processes are used to debur, polish, and generate controlled-radius geometry in components. Orbital AFM is used for external finishing...

...water-jet cutting with CNC X-Y-Z programming instead. A stream of water with adjustable flow rate, water pressure, and diameter cuts into parts. Plain water cuts softer materials like reinforced plastics and composites. Abrasive media speed cutting or assist in cutting harder materials. Water-jet cutting...

...version of sandblasting, microblasting is designed to clean, texture, deburr, or otherwise process very small parts and hard-to-reach areas with extreme accuracy. The variety of abrasive media that are available and the capability to adjust the blast pressure offer users a great degree of process control...

...minute standard deviations,” says DeBella. “Surface retexturing can’t cause a deviation in the mould dimensions,” he adds. Blasting Ahead. By sending a jet of dry air and abrasive media through a nozzle, microblasting equipment cleans and textures parts without altering their dimensions. DeBella...

...manual microabrasive blasting has been used in needle manufacturing for decades. The process uses high-pressure compressed air to force micron-sized abrasive media through a nozzle to affect a product 's surface. Various effects can be achieved by altering the pressure or the media. Surfaces can...

A refined form of sandblasting for precision manufacturing applications, manual microabrasive blasting has been used in needle manufacturing for decades. The process involves the use of high-pressure compressed air to force micron-sized abrasive media through a nozzle to affect a product 's surface...
