If your company uses compression, torsion or flat springs, you need a custom metal finishing service like electropolishing to reduce or eliminate notches, cracks or other micro defects that could eventually cause premature failure. Able Electropolishing processes millions of springs every year to extend the life of their performance.
Many companies utilize electropolishing services for their metal parts to increase the longevity of parts that flex, bend and twist. If your metal springs have micro defects, it can potentially lead to accelerated corrosion or cracking over time. When Able electropolishes springs, we remove these surface anomalies, leaving the parts with a consistently smooth finish.
When your company’s compression, torsion and flat springs are electropolished, they will have less of a chance to form any fissures or cracks from stress on the metal. By creating a smooth, unblemished surface, you will improve your springs’ cycle life and corrosion resistance, which prevents premature failure. In addition to functionality, electropolishing your springs removes heat treat discoloration and provides a nice decorative appearance.
At Able, we process springs of all types on a daily basis. Our electropolishing services extend the life cycle of springs by reducing or eliminating small fissures or cracks. With our electropolishing service, we smooth out notches or cracks on the spring’s surface, creating a long-lasting product. Regardless of the metal alloy your springs are made from, Able can provide the electropolishing service to make them defect-free. After using our custom finishing service, metal parts can withstand rigorous use—meeting or exceeding cycle life requirements.
Read our guide to understand why so many of the world’s best-known manufacturers, including Boeing, SpaceX, Tesla, and Volvo, trust Able to electropolish their metal parts.
From unexpected costs to regulatory compliance and safety hazards, in-house electropolishing can pose significant challenges and risks.
Electropolishing is used to improve surface finish and enhance corrosion resistance, enabling critical metal parts to perform better and last longer.
When a marine and rescue hardware manufacturer started developing parts for rescue harnesses in 2018, they knew they needed to find a metal finishing partner with uncompromising standards and no tolerance for error: lives, literally, hang on the line.
