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.
