SMT is looking to adapt an automated finishing technology using either a grinding technique or water slurry blasting technology. The main target is the key slots which will be deburred in tandem with small through holes on threads

If you are unsure what equipment and media you require to achieve your desired surface finish, then send us your part, and we will evaluate it and provide you with a metrology report.
