Vibra-Sonic tumblers have a unique movement that produces both a rotary and vibratory tumbling action which reduces processing time of stone or metal by up to 90% compared to ordinary tumblers. The industry standard for over 50 years, these tumblers still outperform and outlast any other type of vibratory tumbler available in a commercial or professional setting.
USE AND OPERATION
Only the load rotates at over 2500 vibrations per minute. When getting started, purchase a starter grit kit and top off with bulk silicon carbide grits or other tumbling abrasives and polishes as needed.
Alternately you can use Diamond Pacific's Vibra-Dry+ tumbling compounds, no water is required and you will not have the above-described slurry during grinding and polishing. These compounds can be reused to save material. Extra hoppers are available separately as needed to fill in the mounts on your base adaptor or provide separate polish and grit-stage hoppers.
When compared to the Mini-Sonic tumbler line, these Vibra-Sonic VT models are commercial duty and are built to withstand serious professional processing duties using larger combinations of hoppers including a huge 50-lb option. For an even more durable solution to use in industrial scenarios, the similar VT series tumblers are ultra-heavy-duty tumblers with cast aluminum reinforced plastisol hoppers. These tumblers will finish stones much faster than rotary rock tumblers and will also change the initial stone shape less.
These Vibra-sonic VSV models are a medium-duty tumbler with standard plastisol hoppers which are interchangeable with the Mini-Sonic tumbler line. If you are in an industrial or commercial setting, the VT series are ultra-heavy-duty tumblers built to withstand serious processing duties using cast-aluminum Viking Hoppers which mount directly to the hopper base.
Vibra-Sonic bases are powder-coated solid cast aluminum. Diamond Pacific's vibratory hoppers are easy to load and unload and permit access for inspection during operation. Your materials tumble quietly, quickly and without splash or gas buildup. Even the most delicate of materials can be processed without breakage or loss of detail. Each hopper (except the Hopper-50) is interchangeable with most Mini-Sonic tumblers as well as these VSV models.
