I'm a student of the Technical University of Gdansk, Poland. Ball burnishing is the subject of my master thesis. I would be very grateful if somebody could contact me by my mail address. I need all the information about ball burnishing : web sites, literature, companies' names, etc.

I am a metal worker and I need to find out what the ball burnishing process involves and if there are any companies in the uk that offer the service. How have you got on with your inquiry? Maybe you could let me have some basic information on the process as I am interested to know the limitations ie, what type of surface it can be applied to etc.

Good luck with your thesis,

Roller Burnishing is a Super-finishing process. It is a Cold Working process which produces a fine surface finish by the planetary rotation of hardened rollers over a bored or turned metal surface. Since all machined surfaces consist of a series of peaks and valleys of irregular height and spacing, the plastic deformation created by roller burnishing is a displacement of the material in the peaks which cold flows under pressure into the valleys. The result is a mirror-like finish with a tough, work hardened, wear and corrosion resistant surface. Lapping and Honing is eliminated.

Mirror Finish in One Pass, Accurate Sizing, Close Tolerances, Eliminates Lapping & Honing.
Improved Metallurgical Properties - Work Hardened Surface, Increase in fatigue strength.
No Additional Machine Investment - attachable to any Standard Machine Tool Already Present in the Shop.
Long Tool Life No Operator Skill Required Low Torque & Power Requirements Maximum Parts Interchangeability.

The method of roller burnishing is a cold rolling process without removal of metal. A set of rollers is used to roll on the component surface with adequate pressure. As a result all the pre-machined peaks gets compressed into valleys thus giving a mirror like surface finish.

Advantages of Roller Burnishing are

1. Fantastic Mirror like surface finish

2. Consistent dimensional tolerance and Repeatability

3. Single Pass Operation offers very less cycle time

4. Increases the Surface Hardness

5. Reduces the Reworks and Rejections

I'm a graduate student-mechanical department-HoChiMinhCity University of Technology. I'm now studying about ball or roller burnishing process. There's hardly any literatures about this subject in Vietnam, and it's difficult to find out the full literatures on internet. Hence, I need and hope everybody can help and support me. If someone has e-books or literatures, please contact or send them to me.
Thanks and have a good day to everybody
