We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest product, the HT2 vibratory finishing machine. Learn how the HT2 will revolutionise your finishing.

The latest of our products to launch is the HT2, a vibratory trough finishing machine that is optimised for small batch work and delicate components. It’s also simple to install and operate, and is highly efficient.

Key features and benefits of the HT2 vibratory trough machine:

  • It’s mounted on caster wheels, making it easy to move around.
  • Compact design to optimise floor space and portability and storage.
  • Low noise level at approximately 65 dB.
  • Dosing pump can output 10L an hour is easily accessible.
  • Independent recirculation system and integrated water filtration to reduce set-up and maintenance costs.
  • Maximum tank capacity is 30L, which is more than sufficient for most applications.
  • Drive system with sealed bearings for maintenance free running.
  • Single phase connectivity.

We are pleased to add this machine to our range, as it allows us to provide cost effective solutions for low volume producers. The machine can be moved around and connected up within seconds. Making this vibratory finishing machine quiet, was a critical aspect of design. It is great that we achieved this, making it suitable to be used in kitchens to factory floors.


We have designed the HT2 vibratory trough to suit various customer applications such as:

  • Deburring
  • Descaling
  • Degreasing & Oil Removal
  • Cleaning
  • Smoothing
  • Radiusing
  • Brightening & Polishing

What is a vibratory finishing machine?

As a common finishing method in the manufacturing industry, vibratory finishing is an efficient process used to optimise all types of small products and parts. Vibratory finishing machines help you clean and deburr products at a faster pace.

What is vibratory deburring?  

Vibratory deburring removes the rough edges from parts and enables them to fit together more efficiently. This leads to fewer part rejections as well as improved safety. In addition, deburring is an important step in preparing parts for painting.

How does vibratory polishing work?

In this stage a combination of media, parts and compounds are placed in a vibrating machine. The vibrations cause the contents to move in a circular motion and the media to grind against the part to get the desired finish.

What is a tumbling barrel?

Barrel finishing, also known as barrel tumbling or vibratory finishing, is a surface improving operation in which a mixture of parts, media and compounds are placed in a six- or eight-sided barrel and rotated at a predetermined speed for the purpose of rounding corners, deburring, grinding, descaling, deflashing, improving surface finish and much more. 

What are the different types of finishing?

There are several types of metal finishing such as metal plating, chemical finishing or coating, grinding, buffing, electroplating, and sandblasting. Each process has basic steps with all processes beginning with surface preparation. Metal finishing processes can include anything from technical processes to buffers.
