Customers come to Able with various packaging requirements, and, in many cases, we are the final step in production before the part goes directly into use or is assembled in a controlled environment. Learn more about our clean packaging capabilities.
As an ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified company, our No. 1 goal is always to meet our customers’ needs—and packaging is one part of the process not to be overlooked. Some metals that we electropolish, such as copper and brass, will oxidize over time if not packaged properly. A part vacuum sealed and purged of oxygen can last in inventory longer and remain in the same condition as the day it was electropolished.
Metals that typically do not oxidize, such as stainless steel, titanium, niobium and others, sometimes need to be packed in an atmospherically controlled environment based on the specific application and cleanliness requirements. This type of packaging is pertinent to many of the various sectors Able serves, such as medical, pharmaceutical, aerospace, food & beverage, semiconductor, high voltage, ultra high purity systems, automation, as well as laser and optics systems.
Following electropolishing or other metal finishing treatments, certain parts need to be packaged with custom packaging methods. To meet the clean packaging requirements for these parts, Able Electropolishing has the ability to purge with nitrogen and vacuum seal parts in custom bags. Parts are packed within an ISO Class 5 Clean Bench for enhanced cleanliness control. At Able, we are proud to provide our clean packaging options to best serve our customers. If you have specific packaging needs for your electropolished or passivated parts, we will work with you to develop the appropriate clean packaging for your particular application.
For components requiring special packaging, please contact our sales department to discuss your needs.
From implantable devices to surgical instruments, electropolishing is a single-process treatment that results in biocompatible, safe and ultra clean parts.
We offer aerospace vendors and original equipment manufacturers our signature metal finishing services to increase fatigue-resistance for their metal parts, rendering them capable of withstanding the stress and corrosion that comes with long-term use.
Our strict adherence to industry standards ensures that pharmaceutical components are electropolished in accordance with ASTM B912 and ASME BPE specifications. These products are clean and smooth, corrosion resistant and contaminant free.
Corrosion resistance and microfinish improvement are essential for critical automotive parts, making electropolishing an increasingly beneficial option for automakers.
Our metal finishing services help increase corrosion resistance for these parts, and by removing the outermost layer of metal withelectropolishing the durability and longevity of these appliance components is increased.
Electropolishing materials for this industry eliminates the buildup of bacterial biofilms, as well as keeping the equipment free of contaminants like Salmonella. Electropolishing delivers the level of sanitation required by a number of regulatory agencies.
From robotics to mobile equipment, the uses of electropolishing in the hydraulics and pneumatics industry are many. By helping prevent premature part failure, electropolishing reduces downtime and increases the life cycle of these components.
Improving conductivity and performance is just one benefit electropolishing offers for electronics parts. The surface finish is improved by as much as 50%, removing imperfections from the material without material removal.
ASPSS is a unique venue in the US and offers a matchmaking event dedicated to surface treatment and finishing capabilities for aerospace manufacturing. The event focuses on chemical processes, heat treatment, materials testing, surface enhancement and related services.
