A Magnetic Finisher is ideal for a manufacturer of very small, complex, non-ferrous parts.
Porcelain balls or plastic medias.
Dri-Shine VII. The use of any other manufacturer’s media will void the warranty of the Magnetic Finisher.
The maximum is 60-minute cycles.
You may either purchase new Turbo Pins or buy a demagnetizer locally.
Ferrous parts are magnetic and the machine will not function. Caution should be taken, as damage can be done to the machine if ferrous metals are attempted. If you have any questions, test with a magnet. Only non-magnetic materials can be used.
To determine media capacities, multiply the media density (found with each individual media listing) by the cubic foot capacity of the tumbler (found in the individual tumbler listing). Examples are listed below.
Note this is the total media capacity only. Actual media amounts will vary in direct proportion to the amount of parts being tumbled.
Ceramic (90 lbs/cu ft) in a TV-10 (.10 cu ft). 90 x .10 = 9 pounds of media.
Porcelain Balls (125 lbs/cu ft) in an AV-40 (.35 cu ft). 125 x .35 = 43.75 pounds of media.
Ceramilite (65 lbs/cu ft) in a TV-5 (.05 cu ft). 65 x .05 = 3.25 pounds of media.
Plastic (55 lbs/cu ft) in an AV-75 (.75 cu ft). 55 x .75 = 41.25 pounds of media.
Plastic (55 lbs/cu ft) in an AV-18 (.18 cu ft) 55 x .18 = 9.9 pounds of media.
Dri-Shine III (30 lbs/cu ft) in a Dri-Polisher (.12 cu ft). 30 x .12 = 3.6 pounds of media.
