- Shot Blasting- Blades are rotated at high speeds by a motor. The resulting centrifugal force propels the blasting media. This method is capable of treating large surfaces efficiently, making it most suitable for treating large products or large product batches.
- Air Blasting- The blasting media is propelled through a nozzle using the force of compressed air. This method is most suitable for treating small surfaces.
- Mass Finishing- Untreated work pieces are put into a tank along with finishing media. Finishing is performed by applying physical forces which cause the media and work pieces to rub against each other. This method is most suitable for batch treatment of small and medium-sized products.
- Brushing- Edge-finishing is performed by rotating brushes at high speeds and rubbing their hair tips against the product to be treated. It is most suitable for individual treatment of small and medium sized products.
