Can Able Electropolish Blades?

Electropolishing is frequently chosen as a deburring operation, making it an ideal solution for improving blades post-grinding. Grinding operations can leave metal blades ragged, with jagged, uneven edges and burrs that can break off during use. By removing a controlled, uniform layer of surface material from the blade, electropolishing smoothes out these imperfections and rough surfaces, leaving the blade sharper than ever.

Deburring is critical in blade manufacturing. Burrs and jagged edges prevent blades from making smooth cuts, which can compromise their effectiveness and even damage the objects they are used on. Burrs can also break off during use, staying behind in food or even in the bodies of medical patients. Electropolishing a blade strips away its burrs and creates a smooth, sharp, even surface, making the blade safer and easier to use. Processing samples allows you to determine the minimum amount of surface material that must be removed in order to achieve this final result without drastically altering the size and shape of the blade.
