Linishing

Linishing Services tailored to your product's exact requirements.

Description

Linishing is an operation we use to remove excess material from the component by using a technique on a sand belt on a flatbed linisher.

We can improve the flatness of a component by removing split lines by linishing the surface. Linishing is also a process that is used in preparation for high finish work such as chrome plated finishes. The surface of the casting would be linished to give the finished component a very high finish.

Either grinding wheels or belts may be used; the latter are more serviceable, because they are more easily changed, capable of conforming to a variety of casting shapes and require no dressing. Linishing wheels allow higher precision.

    FAQ's

    What does Linishing do?

    Linishing helps to the following:

    • Improvement of a casting surface.
    • Preparation of a casting surface for polishing and finishing.
    • The removal of sharp edges.
    How does Linishing work?

    A linishing belt is put on two pulleys on a Linishing machine. The linishing machine is powered by electric and spins the linish belt at high speed. The linishing process can be repeated reliably several 100 times per hour.

    Linishing is a very cost effective way to improve the edges and prepare the surface of a casting for other processes and finishes such as polishing and plating.

    How is the Linishing process carried out?

    The casting is offered up to the linishing belt and it rubs away at the surface of the casting improving the surface finish of the casting. The linishing process is very good for removing sharp edges. Quite often the linishing process is done by hand.

    The process is skilled from the operator but very repeatable in its process form.

    What is a Linishing belt?

    Linishing belts come in lots of grades.

    • Very Smooth.
    • Smooth
    • Medium
    • Rough
    • Coarse
    • Very coarse.

    They're also graded in numbers 40 to 540 with the lowest numbers being very coarse and the higher numbers being very smooth.

    What is a Linishing machine?

    A linishing machine has a flatbed with 2 x pulleys. The pulleys are at either end of the linishing bed. The pulleys drive the linishing belt to rotate at very high speed.

    The speed of the belt is needed to create the friction between the linishing belt and the die casting which removes the surface of the casting reliably and repeatably and very evenly across the die casting surface that is being linished.
