How to wire brush inside of cake pans


We are a metal finishing and polishing job shop. We have the opportunity to quote on stainless steel cake pans. They want a wire brush finish on the inside. Do you have any suggestions and what equipment would work best? We have used what is called a sand shaper wheel on the outside but the inside is more complicated.

I think a blasting or peening or vibratory finishing process that gave the "look" of wire brushing might be the answer. I can't imagine a brush that gets into the corner where the side, ends, and bottom meet unless it was so small in diameter as to be impractical.

Need to know the material and surface finish requirements in order to make good recommendations. Suggest you talk with OEM brush company because brushes are like choosing media supplies. There are probably 101+ ways to achieve the results you are looking for. Choosing the right one depends on existing equipment, time cycles, etc.
