Seeking Contract Finishing 316L Jewelry Items
Interested in quote for tumble finishing of approx. 1000/month small
(6mm x 6mm)jewelry objects in 316L Stainless Steel. Currently we are manually removing ceramic shell coating, electropolishing, then hand buffing. Would like to contract out as much as possible.

If your parts are 6x6mm you might want to consider doing this work in house. You mention S.S. burnishing parts, which is relatively expensive media about $7 to 12/lb., but it doesn't have to be replaced. Whereas a mirror finish can also be accomplished with dry organic materials at less than $2/lb. Time should not be a factor with this volume and cost of equipment is less than $550.
