This pre-owned Baird Open Ended Barrel Rumblers generates a gentle finishing process with an even surface finish as either a mass finishing, mixing or mechanical plating barrel.

Rotating barrels offer in many instances technically and economically optimum solutions, especially for processing of mass parts in mid- large size batches.

Baird Open Ended Barrel Rumblers are also ideal machines for surface smoothing, polishing or even mechanical plating.

Functional principle

The large 900 A/F (1200 at base) x 900 mm deep open ended rotating barrel generates a three-fold sliding movement of the media/parts mass. At electrically controlled variable speeds. the relative movement between parts and media is extremely gentle and, thus – with relatively long processing times - produces an excellent surface finish.

The machine is equipped for the Manual loading of parts and media and also for ease of unloading with an electro-mechanically tilting devise.

Technical characteristics

• Barrel drive: Variable speed inverter control speed range

• Barrel: Tapered octagonal welding construction

• Wear protection: Barrel lined with wear and chemically resistant PU (barrel requires relining)

Notes on Mechanical plating

Mechanical plating is an effective means of applying zinc, tin, or other ductile metals or mixtures of ductile metals to metal substrates - usually steel.

In the mechanical plating process, impact energy is transferred from the rotating open - ended barrel through glass beads, resulting in the cold - welding of fine metal dust particles to the substrate.

The resulting deposit is slightly porous, matte in finish, and provides corrosion protection to the articles so plated without introducing hydrogen embrittlement into the part.

It is therefore used widely to provide corrosion protection to high - strength fasteners, particularly those above Rockwell C 40.

Price advertised includes the existing lining.
