Tilting Rotary

Tilting Type Rotary Barrel

Tilting Rotary Barrel systems are a type of  finishing machine that offers a different option to vibratory finishing, these machines are very good for delicate and flat components, the rotary action allows the parts to slide and tumble rather than rotate like the circular bowl, this prevents parts sticking together and reduces the risk of damage.

This machine is also fitted with a rotary valve which allows you to add water or for rinsing the parts before discharging.

These machines come with a variable speed controller, this gives versatility and allows you to dictate the speed of the rotation, this is a big advantage, especially when polishing.
