Achieve the highest-quality finish possible for your critical metal parts with precise, consistent and repeatable results you can count on. Whether you need electropolishing, passivation, vapor degreasing, or other finishing processes, Able is the metal finishing provider of choice for manufacturers of parts with no margin for error.
Also known as a “reverse plating” process, electropolishing involves removing surface metal from a part in a uniform fashion, effectively eliminating microscopic burrs or other defects to leave the product with a smooth, bright and clean finish. Companies often specify electropolishing as the final step in their manufacturing process. Read more
Passivation is a process in which parts are submersed into an acid bath to remove free iron and other surface contaminants. The resulting finish improves corrosion resistance. Read more
Our Finish First methodology enables world class design and manufacturing engineers to approach metal finishing challenges from the beginning, both as a way to ensure better results prior to penetrant testing, and as an advantage in the design and prototyping stage.
Learn why enhanced corrosion resistance is one of the most common reasons engineers across a variety of industries rely on electropolishing to finish their critical metal parts, especially for parts made of stainless steel. Three included case studies show the difference electropolishing makes.
Electropolishing, with its ability to remove a microscopically precise layer of surface material with consistent results, is the finishing process of choice for such parts, for many reasons. Learn why electropolishing is more effective than other methods for removing burrs.
Whether you are an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), a part manufacturer or a metal working shop looking to solve these common surface problems, it's critical to find a solution to adequately address these surface problems in a cost-effective method.
If you’re manufacturing parts with 440C stainless steel and relying on passivation to get the finish you need, you may be overlooking an opportunity to dramatically improve the corrosion resistance of your parts.
While electropolishing is best known for the results it achieves as the last step in the process for finishing critical metal parts, it can also be an interim step for improving the results of parts that will undergo plating.
The biocompatibility of medical devices, implants and instruments to ensure that every part that comes into contact with the human body poses no risk of irritation or harm is a fundamental requirement for medical manufacturers.
For every successful project at Able Electropolishing, there is a meticulous, high-quality process at work behind the scenes. Our clients rely on us for precise and consistent results, customized to the demanding needs of industries like medical device manufacturing, food and beverage production – and industries like yours.
