Dental: Improve Dental Tool Performance with Electropolishing

Manufacturers of dental instruments rely on Able Electropolishing to remove burrs and improve the microfinish on internal components. Deburring and eliminating imperfections from moving parts increases their longevity, and electropolished parts can extend the life of dental components from the inside out.

Electropolishing for Metal Parts Used in Dental

The dental tool industry has relied on electropolishing for its products for years. Although electropolishing dental instruments has a variety of benefits, the most notable is dramatically improved corrosion resistance. Dental instruments are subjected to repeated autoclave cleaning, which places them in a highly corrosive environment.

Electropolishing dental instruments electrochemically removes the amorphous layer that is created on the surface of a part during machining, stamping, grinding, vibratory tumbling or other secondary operations. Unlike mechanical stainless steel polishing, our process effectively removes the free iron, lubricants and other contaminants that become embedded in the surface metal pores during machining while improving corrosion resistance. Left in the metal, those contaminants become initiation sites for corrosion to take hold.

We recommend sending samples for electropolishing so that you can evaluate both finish and dimensional changes. If electropolishing is planned during the design stage, the material removal can be factored into your final size specifications.

The Benefits of Electropolishing for 440C Stainless Steel

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.

Electropolishing for Better, More Durable Plated 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.

Biocompatibility and Electropolishing for Medical Manufacturing

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.

Electropolishing Process with the Highest Standards of Quality Control

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.
