    There are four basic types of mass finishing machines used in producing clean, burr-free, stainless steel parts: rotary, centrifugal, spindle, and vibratory. This paper traces the history of the development of the equipment and techniques from early Egyptian times and discusses the relative merits of each. The paper reviews new developments in handling equipment, which allow systems to be automated, and it examines several basic types of compounds and abrasive media used for cleaning, descaling, deburring, and burnishing stainless steel parts.
