Electropolishing & Passivation for Medical

Medical devices, tools and surgical implants have to function flawlessly within a life or death context. Every component of these products has to be manufactured to a microscopic level of precision and consistency. There is no metal finishing process that can achieve better results than electropolishing.

Precision Electropolishing

Electropolishing's ability to remove a microscopically precise surface layer with absolute consistency leaves critical metal parts with an ultraclean and ultrasmooth surface that inhibits the growth of pathogens and makes reusable devices easier to clean, without burrs, micro cracks and other surface imperfections that can trap liquids and debris and give harmful bacteria a place to hide.

In fact, electropolishing is so effective at optimizing the surface of medical devices and parts that we are often consulted for help in the prototyping phase to ensure that features are designed in ways that make electropolishing even more effective and avoid common design flaws.
