Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Houston TX
Even the most precise manufacturing processes can leave tiny surface imperfections behind. With virtually any part used for any application, imperfections will cause problems. For example, if the part is to be used for food or medical applications, imperfections could trap harmful bacteria.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston TX you need. Options range from gravel-like 1000 grit to powder-like 8-grit.
- 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 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 Houston TX. 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.
