Tribofinishing is a frictional surface treatment. This material-to-material finishing process uses vibrations to polish custom-made machined mechanical parts.


We use tribofinishing (sometimes called chemical-mechanical polishing, vibroabrasion, tumbling or vibratory finishing) to modify the surface finish and edges of our metal parts. We immerse them in an abrasive mixture (more commonly known as “media”) set in vibratory, oscillatory or rotary motion in a tank. We mainly use ceramic media to polish and/or deburr metal, aluminium and plastic.

Main advantages of tribofinishing

  • Possibility of achieving outstanding cleaning and smoothing of parts
  • Reduced wear and tear and improved lubrication
  • Slight surface hardening
  • Possibility of mirror polishing the surface
  • Optimisation of the durability of mechanical parts
