Mechanical equipment (hand held) is important to the mold polisher for three reasons.
- Mechanical equipment greatly reduces the amount of time required to reach the desired finish.
- Mechanical equipment provides flexibility (many solutions to one problem) and versatility (ability to do more tasks) for the mold polisher.
- Using hand held mechanical equipment enables the polisher to be more consistent in finish and in the time required from piece to piece and from job to job.
The most common types of hand held mechanical equipment used in mold polishing are presented on the following pages.
