TAM technology has several advantages over other mechanical finishing processes, such as a high flow of free abrasive grain that allows for penetration of abrasive media particles into difficult to access part areas that require edge and surface finish improvement. Another advantage is lower energy consumption, especially in contrast to pressure-blast surface finishing. It also has very simple tooling, processing, and maintenance requirements.
Although these rotors can pose a nesting or impingement problem for mass media finishing methods such as barrel and vibratory finishing, edge finish can be accomplished uniformly with a high-speed spindle finish process in a dry abrasive environment with blasting grains lasting a few minutes
