Electropolishing dental tools and implantable devices removes contaminants embedded in their surfaces, as well as the micro-imperfections that trap bacteria and become initiation sites for corrosion. This isn’t the only benefit of electropolishing metal tools and devices for the dental industry, though, as deburring smoothes out the rough and jagged edges that may otherwise compromise part performance and lead to medical complications.
For example, dentists rely on high-speed drills on a regular basis. If parts like these have burrs—either on their internal components or on the drill itself—they may not function as smoothly as they should. Metal burrs on drills and cutting implements can also break off during use, causing infections and other complications in patients. Deburring dental tools and implantable devices strips away the metal flakes that can break off or impede performance, making parts safer, more effective and longer-lasting.

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.
