Abstract

The foregoing thesis presented different viabilities of the vibratory tumbling as a processing of the finishing surface of sprocket wheels. The sprocket wheels were EN AW 2017A aluminum of alloy and they were made with the method of machining. One of sprocket wheels was subjected to a vibratory tumbling in the device Superminor SMR-D-120 of the ROLLWASH company. There were also ceramic fittings used in that process. A possibility of applying the vibratory tumbling for removing burrs, discolorations and rounding off sharp edges of sprocket wheels was being analysed. The analysis of the results (macrophotographies of the details of sprocket wheels and the achieved results of the 3D surface roughness) indicate that the vibratory tumbling achieved its earlier presented goals and it can be applied to process sprocket wheels.
