Class Information
Number: 451/32
Name: Abrading > Abrading process > Tumbling
Description: Method wherein abrading of one or more workpieces is accomplished during a series of free fall movements, or propulsions, resulting from forces imparted thereon by a work receptacle in motion (generally rotational), and wherein the abrading contact may be: (a) that of mutual attrition between similarly freely moving work bodies; and/or (b) that between a work body and the receptacle wall structure; and/or (c) that exercised by an encompassing fluent particulate mass.
