See below to learn more about each type of tumbling media.

Special Shapes

There are several reasons that tumbling media is manufactured in special shapes and sizes. The shape is manufactured to be able to reach all areas of the part and provide more media-to-part contact. The more contact, the faster the result. An example would be a steel stamping and using triangular media to contact all areas of the part.

The general rules of thumb are: flat media is used for flat parts; round media, round parts. After this, it comes down to parts-media separation and media lodging issues. The idea is to pick a shape of media that will reach to the areas on the parts that are of concern, and then pick a size which will be separated easily from the parts and also not lodge into any holes or slots.

Random Shape

The random shape media offers you a very fine, solid crystalline structure, which adds in cutting, wear and impact resistance. Its weight increases cutting action along with providing burnishing capabilities similar to steel media. Its shape lends itself to fine finishes.

Ceramic media is recommended for general purpose polishing, light and heavy deburring, fast and extra fast deburring and ultra aggressive metal removal. Ceramic media is best for heavy cutting and hard metals. When a small media is required (under 3/4"), ceramics offer the best selection. Ceramic media supports very heavy parts better than plastic media.

The polishing and deburring media you choose has a direct bearing on the quality of work, time cycles, operating procedures and ultimately, your bottom line. We offer you the most comprehensive selection of ceramic media. Our Ceramic Duramedia line enables you to match media composition, density, shape and size to your mass finishing requirements.
