Deburring and surface finishing machines are used for mass finishing of metal, plastic, ceramic and rubber parts. Small parts weighing few grams to parts weighing up to 25 Kg can be processed in variety of machines available from Gala wide range of products. Use of deburring and finishing machines is essential to achieve consistency and high production rates.
In addition to finishing equipment use of abrasive media and compounds is essential to achieve desired process results. Abrasive media can be of ceramic, porcelain, steel or plastic material. Compounds are used with water with concentration level of 5 to 10%. Gala offers standard and customised products to suit specific customer needs.
Complete automation of surface finishing processes is possible by using component loading system, conveyors, vibratory trolley, dosing system using PLC based control panels.
Vibratory finishing machine consists of a bowl lined with polyurethane material which is mounted on springs and uses vibratory motor and unbalanced weights to achieve gyroscopic motion to the workload. Vibratory finishing is used to achieve Deburring, Edge radiusing , Degreasing, Descaling, Polishing, Mirror Finishing and Smoothening of variety of components.
This is the most common method used for deburring and polishing of components which includes sheet metal, machined, cast, forged and moulded parts. A wide range of components of Automotive, Aerospace, Defence and Consumer products can be processed using vibratory finishing machine. We offer following Vibratory machines based on shape of the working bowl.
Segmented machines are used for bigger parts to avoid part to part hitting while processing.
Segments are provided to make compartments in working bowl where one or few parts are loaded for finishing. Normally 3 to 8 compartments are provided.
We offer segmented Round and Trough vibratory finishing machines as per the customer need.
These machines are used for parts like machined aluminium die cast parts, parts of hydraulic industry and many more.
This is more aggressive form of finishing as compared to Vibratory finishing. This machine uses 3 or 4 barrels mounted on turret assembly. The high rotation speed of turret results in high centrifugal forces which results in faster process. These machines are often used with variable frequency drives to adjust the rotational speed as per process need.
The surface finish achieved with this process is more uniform and even.
These machines are used in various industry sectors such as jewellery, bearing, textile, compressor, automotive, aerospace and many more.
Centrifugal barrel finishing machine process is capable of achieving high Ra values up to 0.06 microns for parts like textile rings, reed valves, bearing rollers and many more.

This is the most aggressive form of surface finishing as compared to Vibratory finishing or Centrifugal barrel finishing.
The resulting forces are at least 10 times higher as compared to Vibratory finishing process.
This machine consists of a tub or housing with a rotating disc at bottom driven by electric motor. Complete automation is possible with component loading, separation trolleys, and media reloading using PLC based controls.
These machines are popular in processing parts like coin blanks, medical implants, fine blanked components, precision components of automotive, aerospace sector and many more.
Completely automated finishing systems can be offered along with Vibratory finishing and Disc finishing systems.
Automation results in achieving higher production rates and process consistency.
Fully automatic finishing systems can be offered using component loading system, separation system, compound dosing system, conveyors and PLC based control panel.
Customised systems are popular in applications like processing of coin blanks, medical implants, fine blanked parts, drive chain components, bearing rollers, cages and many more.
