Future of Fast Dry Processing

DF drag finishing series offers the very highest specification including all key extras as standard

The Wheelabrator Vibro DF-4 (24 dm³ litres) drag finishing machine is designed for a specific product range that requires special handling, fast metal removal, controlled surface smoothing/refinement and components that must avoid impingement.

Examples of applications include:

  • Aerospace Components
  • Gears and Splines
  • Orthopaedic Implants
  • Precision Components with low tolerances
  • Drill Bits and Milling Tools
  • Moulding Tools

The touch screen control panel allows for simplified operator programming with frequency invertor variable speed drive 20 – 50 rpm allowing for semi-automated production. This is a controlled process with interchangeable spindle fixtures and being highly suited for controlled handling to avoid part-on-part contact of crucial components. Custom will have to provide their own spindle fixtures for their specific component handling.

Designed for improving results and faster dry process times for:

  • Deburring
  • Polishing
  • Grinding
  • Smoothing

Main Features:

  • Planetary style drive system by gear motor for rotating head
  • 4 Independent rotating spindles driven from rotating head
  • Touch screen control panel for simplified operation and allowing semi-automated production, thus reducing operator input
  • Stainless steel process bowl and trolley
  • Additional stainless steel bowl and trolley
  • Variable speed frequency invertor for optimum process control 20 – 50 rpm
  • Quick release bowl for swift and easy exchange when running multiple processes
  • Spindles lower down into bowl when processing


  • DF-4 Drag finishing machine with stainless steel 101 litre bowl and 4 spindles
  • Trolley
  • Additional trolley and stainless steel 101 litre bowl

 Technical Details:

  • Ex-Demo 2017 machine with only 32 runtime minutes
  • 101 Litre stainless steel process bowl
  • Process capacity 4 x 6 litres = 24 dm³ litres volume
  • 4.5 kW drive motor (32 Amp)
  • Frequency Invertor - Variable Speed Drive 20 - 50 rpm
  • 230v Blue Euro 3-Pin (2+E) socket
  • Theoretical maximum diagonal component dimension = 200mm (ideal maximum diagonal 120mm)

 The latest technology for improved results and faster dry processing times for specialised components.
