From robotics to heavy mobile equipment, the numerous applications for hydraulic and pneumatic assemblies require reliability and high cycle life. The components in these assemblies must be precisely machined and have the proper surface finish, which is easily attained with electropolishing.
Our Finish First methodology enables world class design and manufacturing engineers to approach metal finishing challenges from the beginning, as an advantage in the design and prototyping stage.Explore finish first

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.Download Whitepaper
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.Download whitepaper
Compatible with nearly any alloy and able to precisely and consistently remove surface defects, electropolishing is the metal finishing process of choice for a wide variety of metal parts used in hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
With its ability to remove a very precise amount of surface material and lower the Ra value, electropolishing is effective for deburring and removing flecks of metal and other contaminants left behind by machining, leaving parts free of defects that can interfere with assembly and lead to premature failure and lost production time.
We have decades of experience in electropolishing metal parts for hydraulics and pneumatics, including components made of carbon and 300 series stainless steel like plungers, spools and pins and control systems. Our high-quality processes do not end with electropolishing. Successfully deburred and electropolished parts are typically packed in cell trays to avoid part to part contact during shipping.
With in-house tooling capabilities and custom post-finishing packing, Able Electropolishing employs highly-customized processes for every part, including any special handling required to maintain part integrity. Send your 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
