Advantages of burnishing process

Burnishing is a cold process in which plastic deformation takes place by applying pressure on metallic surfaces through a ball or roller. This process is mainly used for completion and reinforcement. Let us have a deep insight into the advantages provided by the burnishing process. 

Advantages of the burnishing process :

  • It improves revolution size and finishes such as cylinders and conical surfaces.
  • Possible to burn internal and external surfaces.
  • Improves the hardness of the surface.
  • Increases wear resistance and decrease fatigue and fight corrosion.
  • It also eliminates the processes of grinding and honing that can be expensive.
  • Mirror finish in one pass and accurate sizing, close tolerance and eliminate lapping and honing process too. 
  • Long tool life and no operator skill required. 
  • Machining time is short.
