What to expect:

The Model DF 3000 is a robust 6 head machine that includes a Digital PLC control system with Touch-Screen operator interface as standard equipment. As with all Bel Air DF Series Drag Finishers, this model incorporates our unique Chamber-Lift™ technology which eliminates the mechanical issues inherent on most Drag Finishers currently sold today. The media chamber and lift assembly are designed to roll out of the machine for easy clean-out of the media chamber and the inside of the machine. Made in the USA, with short delivery times and competitive pricing.

The FMDF 3000 Series are also available for specific tasks, such as tool honing and polishing, pill punch polishing and many others. To view drag finishers that are used for tool honing and polishing, please visit our tool honing web site at
