MFI HZ Series Centrifugal Barrels


MFI’s HZ Series Centrifugal Barrel finishing machines provide the most economical, high speed finishing available. HZ machines operate on the “ferris wheel” principle with a 1:1 ratio of barrel rotation to turret rotation. Four barrels are mounted on the periphery of a large turret. Each barrel is loaded to approximately 50-80% full with media, parts and water. During operation, rotation of the turret creates force on the media and parts inside each barrel. This force reduces the cycle time needed to complete the finishing of the parts by up to a factor of 30 over conventional vibratory and barrel finishing.
 
How it Works

Standard Variable Frequency Speed Control


Different parts require different finishing speeds. From slower speeds for fine finishing and polishing, to aggressive deburring and edge radiusing at high speed, the Variable Frequency Speed Control allows you to fine tune your finishing for maximum efficiency.
 

Removable Liners Standard on all Machines


These durable, long-life liners are supplied with ¼” wide divider slots spaced on 1” centers to accommodate a wide variety of product sizes and other unique finishing requirements. Resulting in maximum efficiency per run. Liners can be easily removed and replaced by removing a few screws.
