Metal parts used in helicopters and airplanes must withstand stress and corrosion within demanding cycle life specifications.
Whether stamped or machined, these parts almost always have surface anomalies that can cause premature failure.
Electropolishing creates a smooth, corrosion-resistant surface that increases cycle life for these flight-critical parts.
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.Explore finish first
