Fundamentally, the composition of a vibratory finishing machine is very simple. It consists of a barrel with grinding and polishing stones, through which the workpiece is guided. The workpiece is moved through the barrel using a continuous vibration.
- Vibratory finishing machines work very quickly
- It consists of a barrel with grinding and polishing stones, through which the workpiece is guided
- Vibratory finishing machines can be operated manually or automatically

Alternatively, the workpieces could be moved through the barrel using stirrers. The workpieces then lose their unevenness by being dragged along the grinding and polishing stones. The quality to which the workpiece is ground depends on the type of polishing and grinding stones used (including their size, hardness and roughness) and the length of the grinding process. The smaller, harder and finer the grinding and polishing stones are, the better the results will be.
The spectrum of results that can be achieved using a vibratory finishing machine ranges from simple deburring to high-gloss polishing. In relation to manual grinding processes, the machine's grinding process is especially uncritical. The grinding material (i.e. the grinding and polishing stones) fits to the shape of the workpiece and fully encloses it. With normal use of a vibratory finishing machine, deep erosion of raw materials would not occur.
