You can improve all types of metal parts with precise internal polishing in Columbus OH
Even the most precise manufacturing processes can leave tiny surface imperfections behind. This can lead to many problems. For example, in the case of an EDM recast part, the rough surface could lead to stress fractures.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not. Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Columbus OH offers the ideal solution.
With abrasive flow machining, it is possible to enhance the surface finish of metal parts, without removing so much material that the blueprint specs of the geometry or the internal passages are compromised. Unlike hand tools, our process for internal polishing in Columbus OH can reach deep into every passage, no matter how small and convoluted it may be. The end result is a uniform, consistent finish that will enhance the performance and durability of the part.
Here’s How Internal Polishing in Columbus OH Works:
- We set up a tool that will hold your part in place and direct the abrasive flow to the specific passages you want to polish.
- We select the right size of abrasive grit that will deliver the amount of internal polishing in Columbus OH you need. We have a huge range of grits to choose from, with gravel-like particles at the larger end on down to extremely fine powders.
- We mix the grit into the appropriate media, choosing the viscosity and concentration carefully to ensure material is removed from the part at the desired rate.
- We run the AFM process, using a hydraulic ram to pressurize the abrasive media and force it through the workpiece, essentially producing controlled erosion to evenly polish the internal surfaces.
This process is highly customizable and flexible, allowing for precise and predictable internal polishing in Columbus OH. As a true expert in this process, with experience dating back to 1971, you can rely on Extrude Hone AFM to recommend the perfect parameters for your job. We are familiar with all kinds of metals including Iconel, titanium, aluminum, bronze, copper, and more.
