Electropolishing for Metal Parts Used in Hydraulic & Pneumatic Applications

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.
