Burnishing compound designed for mass finishing
Madison Chemical has introduced
Tumble Brite EP- 13, a mild burnishing compound for mass finishing
operations. It decreases burnishing
time while cleaning oils and removing
oxide and scale, producing a smooth
surface with a bright appearance and
luster, the manufacturer reports.
The compound provides excellent lubricity and controlled
foam, and it reduces excessive media-to-media wear, making it
suitable for vibratory or barrel operations, states the company.
With a pH of 3.0 to 3. 5 and a specific gravity of 1.08, the compound does not contain nitrite, phosphorus, or silicate. It can
be used on stainless steel, ferrous, aluminum, zinc, copper,
and brass alloys, as well as for deburring operations. When
not rinsed, it provides short-term rust protection for normal
operations of steel media.
Portable inline fluid
reclamation machine updated
has introduced a
new version of its
ble inline fluid rec-
provides complete coolant restoration
and rejuvenation treatment of metal-
working fluids in the machine tool sump
with minimal operator intervention.
There is no interruption in the produc-
tion cycle or need to transport fluids.
The portable unit can be wheeled next
to a machine tool, parts washer, or rinse
tank to provide a two-step fluid recla-
The main components of the system are a sump cleaner for removal of
chips and solids 50 microns and larger,
a pleated bag filter and housing for removal of solids down to 10 microns, a
high-speed centrifuge for removal of
emulsified tramp oil and fines down to
3 to 5 microns, an ozone generator for
microbiological treatment of coolants,
and electrical controls with touchscreen
Profile gauges offer inline
measurements in hot rolling
mills, cold processes
Zumbach Electronics has introduced three
to its line of profile gauges for steel and metal profiles.
The gauges are based on the laser light
section technique and camera vision,
often called the light-cut principle.
Up to eight line lasers mark the contour of the product, and the respective
cameras capture many pixels on the
product contour. Software adds the four
pictures to the true, orthogonal section
of the profile.
All critical dimensions, angles, and
radii can be programmed together with
Operators and supervisors can monitor the true profile as a 1-to-1 section
online and see irregular faults. All standard profiles, such as H-, I-, U-, L-beams,
hexagons, squares, and flats, can be
