Though it started out as a small farming community, today San Jose CA is one of northern California’s largest cities. The growth started with the return of veterans after WWII looking for a pleasant place to settle, which spurred a housing boom. Through the 1950s and 1960s the electronics industry and other tech companies fueled more growth, and by the 1990s San Jose CA was known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley.” San Jose CA survived the tech bubble of the 2000s and today is home to many top tech companies like Cisco, eBay, HP, Adobe, IBM, and Samsung. Some of these companies have offices and others have manufacturing facilities, where abrasive flow machining just might be useful. Extrude Hone AFM’s highly precise process can be used to to finish parts made by EDM, additive manufacturing, die casting, or traditional machining or to enhance the performance of parts for aerospace, automotive, hydraulic, medical, or food processing applications.
