The speed-up of the disc rotation in dry centrifugal barrel finishing is done and its influence on finishing characteristics is experimentally examined. The workpiece is a sliced cold rolled bar of plain carbon steel (S45C in JIS, HB221). It is 32mm in diameter and finished to10mm in thickness by belt grinding. The equilateral triangular prism nylon media (1010mm, A#320) is used at 20vol% in media charging ratio. The disc rotation speed is increased up to 500min-1. By speeding up the disc rotation, the finishing speed improves, but the total efficiency decreases.
