The article contains the experimental results of research on the use of vibratory machining with loose abrasive media. The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of vibratory machining time with ceramic media, on geometric surface structure changes, burrs removing and rounding effect. In the study were used CB series ceramic media and ME L100 A22/NF was added as a liquid lubricant. The tests were made for a material made of a copper. The finishing was carried out on in a Rollwasch SMR-D-25 vibratory tumbler. The surface of the finished objects was examined with a Nikon MA100 microscope equipped with a NIS-elements viewer (version 4.20). The surface texture of the finished elements was examined using a Taylor Hobson Talysurf CCI Lite optical 3D profiler. The effect of processing time on mass loss, mean changes in arithmetic surface roughness were determined.Keywords: Vibratory machining, tumble finishing, tumbling, fine machining, burrs removing
