How Our Free Electropolishing Sample Process Works

A Process that Leaves Nothing to Chance

Our reputation is built on processes that don’t just work – they work with the repeatable, consistently high-quality results that our aerospace, medical and other customers demand. For us, however, consistency in the quality of results means processes that are anything but generic.

We customize the process for every part that we finish, from custom tooling and racking to customized formulations that ensure that no matter how big or small, how fragile or intricate, every metal part that we finish reaches the same microscopically-precise surface finish, free of burrs, microcracks or other surface imperfections that affect the fit, finish, function and safety of metal parts.

Our Free Sample offer is equally customized, allowing customers to see for themselves how electropolishing works in the very specific context of their part. From the very first step, we put our expertise to work to determine the precise requirements for finishing your sample part.

Electropolishing Free Sample Process

Step 1: Requirements Gathering

It starts with a one-on-one Lunch and Learn meeting to talk through the case studies, the technology and the metal finishing challenges for your specific part, including review of the diagrams and specifications to ensure the best outcome.

Step 2: R&D Guidance & Education

The sample part process is then fully engineered, including the construction of custom tooling and racking. As part of our Finish First process, we can work with your design and prototyping team if product changes are needed to ensure the highest-quality finishing outcome.

Step 3: Sample Processing

Sample parts are processed on full production equipment—not test equipment—and processed within 24-48 hours. Results will often include detailed images of the final finish under magnification.

Step 4: Processing Refinement

Often as part of a WebEx review, the process is further refined to determine the optimal amount of material removal based on your requirements and part tolerances. If we need to re-run your samples to hone in on the perfect processing parameters, you can count on us to do so.

Success = Confidence

It’s a meticulous process designed to give you confidence that your parts will have the highest quality surface finish for optimal fit, function, durability, and corrosion resistance whether the finished product is a flight-critical aerospace component or a lifesaving medical implant.
