bel air deburrClick image to enlargeBel Air’s centrifugal disc finishers polish and deburr a wide range of materials including brass, copper, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, kovar and titanium, eliminating 80 per cent of handwork and producing five times the output of hand deburring. 

They also reduce surface RA in metal parts across aerospace, automotive, medical, and other industries.

Available in sizes ranging from four to 60 liters, most models come with a mobile frame, ideal for cellular or just-in-time production. A wide variety of additional features are also available including integrated ultrasonic cleaners, on board media storage, a direct compound feed system, and parts separation options.

Unlike more traditional disc finishers, Bel Air models have a North/South gap allowing for the easy adjustment of the gap system. Process effluent, which contains broken down media, small amounts of part material, and water mixed with compounds; flows through the gap, wearing it down. Bel Air’s adjustable gap system allows the gap to be closed as it wears down extending the machines service life.
