Ball Burnishing

Ball Burnishing is a process utilizing mass finishing equipment and steel media on metallic workpieces.  The process yields a high luster, almost polished look.  This finish is achieved from the high bulk density of the steel media imparting great pressure onto the workpiece.  

Compound selection is very important in ball burnishing applications.  It is also imperative that the equipment for the process be appropriate for ball burnishing.  The equipment must be robust enough to turn, or roll the media, and the mass.  This weight is usually around three hundred pounds per cubic foot.
