The size of a drag finishing machine is typically determined by the size and quantity of the parts that need to be processed. For example, a small-sized system may be used for just-in-time batch quantities, while a large system will handle more complex and higher-volume applications.

These systems are often equipped with an automatic water filtration system to keep the media and parts clean, and a compound pump to control the concentration of lubricant in the media. A flow meter is used to determine the amount of water and compound needed to complete each step of the operation.

Choosing the correct media is important, as it affects the surface finish of the workpiece. There are thousands of tumbling media types, and each has its own characteristics.

A drag finishing machine uses several abrasive and non-abrasive media to create the desired finish on the workpiece. Based on your requirements, Huzhou Qiaoyun Grinding selects the proper tumbling media among hundreds of options.
