BALLS
elipse shape Eclipse
Round balls with slight flattening at the poles*. Available in sizes from 3/32" - 3/16".
*Precise roundness is not required for the majority of steel media finishing applications. Thus, two small flat spots at opposite poles are not objectionable. Pole-flattened balls are less expensive to manufacture and customers benefit from these economies through lower prices.
** All decimal dimensions are approximately ± .010, with the exception that length of pins and diagonals are ± .020.
abco Abco
Round balls without flats for more critical finishing requirements.
CONES
Center flange and tapered crowns provide contact angles and on curved surfaces. Small sizes are ideal for ornamental designs.
