Buffing Wheel Pressure for Polishing and Buffing

Rotate speed and buffing wheel pressure are two elements that must work together to produce the best finish in a safe, economical way. Proper pressure must be applied to the workpiece to produce the friction that allows the compound to buff. In tangential buffing, enough pressure should be applied to the workpiece to cause the buffing wheel to flare slightly at the point of contact. Inadequate pressure gives no buffing action, but excess pressure may cause the speed of […]

Rotate Speed for Polishing And Buffing

The correct peripheral rotate speed is an important consideration in getting the right results from your buffing operation. Working at high rate heats the work surface and prevents the polishing compound working properly, while working at low speed can not get high mirror finish.
For reasons of economy and efficiency, Surface Feet Per Minute (SFPM) for each polishing and buffing operation is an important factor.  For best results your buffing wheels should maintain a surface speed of between 3600 & 7500 […]
