Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Fort Worth TX
No matter which method may have been used to create a metal part--from EDM to laser sintering to casting--it is bound to have surface imperfections. These imperfections are especially troublesome when they affect internal passages. They can affect the flow rate of gas or liquid through the part, or even lead to premature stress failure in the case of EMD recast parts.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Fort Worth TX 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. This method of internal polishing in Fort Worth TX acts on every interior surface equally, polishing holes, slots, and passages that would be totally inaccessible to hand tools. The end result is a uniform, consistent finish that will enhance the performance and durability of the part.
Here’s How Internal Polishing in Fort Worth TX Works:
- We create a tool or holding fixture that will direct the abrasive flow to the areas of the part that require polishing.
- We select the right size of abrasive grit that will deliver the amount of internal polishing in Fort Worth TX 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 a special polymer designed to carry it to every millimeter of the internal passages at the correct speed for polishing.
- We push the abrasive media through the workpiece using a hydraulic ram, causing it to fill the internal passages entirely and remove material from all sides of the passages.
As you can see, our internal polishing in Fort Worth TX is completely customizable to your needs. You can rely on our expert staff to help you select the right options for achieving the desired finish improvement on your part, whether you are working with a hard metal such as titanium or a softer one such as aluminum.
