Electropolishing for Aerospace

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.
