Part Testing & Evaluation
C&M Topline offers part testing and evaluation at no charge to customers interested in purchasing a tumbling machine. Send us your test parts we will send you back sample finished parts with a recommendation report. The report will include the media we recommend, compounds, run times, parts per load and the machine we used
Turnaround time is usually Two to Three Weeks. We are often very busy with test part evaluations and so turnaround time will vary. We operate the part testing machines on a first come first served basis. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Please send two to five test parts (more are not necessary and will be left un finished when returned) if possible and parts that are a true representation of average pre-finish quality. This is important so that our technicians can evaluate real parts that will be finished in your shop on a regular basis and not your best parts that may need less processing.

The C&M Topline part and evaluation results are a recommendation of process and do not constitute a guarantee of performance due to the ultimately large number of variables. C&M Topline makes all effort to provide our customers with the absolute best recommendation however we cannot foresee every and all condition based on a small testing lot.
Unless expressly prohibited, C&M Topline reserves the right to photograph and publish pictures of finished and unfinished parts sent to us for evaluation on C&M Topline owned online channels for educational purposes.
C&M Topline is not responsible for any damage that may occur during shipping, handling or processing to any part provided for evaluation. All shipping costs of sample parts are the responsibility of the customer.
