Machined aluminum part that needs to be deburred prior to the next production step. The critical areas include the tab (right side of picture) and the swirling machine marks in the center of the part. The overall size of the part is less than two inches so a small media is needed to get into all the inside corners and holes on the part.
The most successful media was a 1/4″ ceramic triangle media (see picture below) in a vibratory tumbling process. This media was able to remove the burrs and tabs on the edges as well as leave a uniform, matte finish on the flat surfaces.
