Because the electropolishing process is used to remove many surface imperfections and embedded contaminants left behind by machining operations, it is frequently chosen as a final step in the manufacturing process.
For example, welding parts can leave them with heat tint, oxide scale and carbide precipitation. Because electropolishing removes a uniform layer of surface material, it eliminates these conditions. Similarly, machining operations may leave metal parts with jagged edges and burrs, which can be smoothed out and removed by the electropolishing process. By making it the final step in your manufacturing process, you can eliminate the imperfections created by other steps, leaving your parts with a smooth, corrosion resistant, bright finish.
This process is so frequently chosen as the final step in manufacturing that Able Electropolishing offers custom packing solutions for your parts after they’ve been electropolished, including clean bench packing. Talk to Able Electropolishing today to learn more about making this your final step.
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.
