"The seminar was fantastic. I can't tell you how beneficial it is to have a classroom and lab session. It was a great trip... probably one of the best seminars I've attended!"​
~ Micheal Bagwell

Bel Air, in its fourth decade of serving the mass finishing industry, will provide you and your staff valuable information on process technologies such as cellular and small parts deburring, burnishing and tumble polishing. As an added feature, a segment will be devoted to wastewater processing, recycling and batch processing.

Participants are encouraged to send along samples of their one (1) toughest mass finishing item that may be giving them trouble. Bel Air will finish these samples and explain the equipment & process used to achieve the results.

We Can Come To You, With Our In-House Vibratory / Mass Finishing Vibratory Workshops

Bel Air can hold a workshop at your facility that is specifically tailored to your requirements. A detailed plan can be developed based on your needs, equipment, parts and specific problems and challenges you are having with your processing. If your staff just needs to know the basics, a one day program can consist of all the subjects contained above at a nominal cost. While there, Bel Air staff can evaluate your current equipment and parts processing, including cleaning and drying and can make recommendations on the proper equipment and supllies required to get the job done in the most cost-effective and time sensitive way possible.
"A fantastic hands on look at mass finishing. Very informative and tailored to your specific finishing needs."
~ Shawn Szczesuil
