Burnishing metal process explained - Burnishing tools & benefits


This category encompasses the various types Burnishing, including Internal, External, Roller, Ball and Diamond Burnishing.


Burnishing is a method of polishing the surface of a component, through compression as opposed to material removal. Increasing hardness, providing a sizing operation, and smoothing peaks and troughs in surface finish. It can achieve mirror like quality.


Burnishing tools can be used internally to create accurate bores with an improved surface finish over boring or drilling, or; Externally to produce bearing surfaces, increase fatigue life and strength and even increased corrosion resistance.


Burnishing can be performed on a dedicated Burnishing Machine, or on a Lathe or Milling Machine.
