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.
When a leading manufacturer in the medical device industry encountered a critical production issue, resulting in $70,000 in monthly scrap costs, they knew immediate action was needed. The culprit? Areas of corrosion on stainless steel racks used in the production…
Ongoing supply chain turbulence has left many industries looking for solutions. At last month’s Medical Product Outsourcing (MPO) Summit, the topic was the source of more than a few urgent conversations. Among the anecdotes shared was a scenario in which…
