Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Indianapolis IN
Every metal fabrication process, from old-fashioned casting to cutting-edge additive manufacturing, leaves behind 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 EDM recast parts.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Indianapolis IN offers the ideal solution.
With abrasive flow machining, we can eliminate surface imperfections in any kind of metal part. The process removes the exact amount of material necessary to deliver the improvement you require and will not compromise the geometry of your part. Even the most convoluted passages that could not be reached with a hand tool can be reached and uniformly improved with our internal polishing in Indianapolis IN. After the process is complete, you will have a stronger, more reliable, better-performing part.
Here’s How Internal Polishing in Indianapolis IN Works:
- We find out which passages you want to polish and create a tool that will direct the flow to these passages while protecting other parts of the workpiece.
- We select the right size of abrasive grit that will deliver the amount of internal polishing in Indianapolis IN you need. Options range from gravel-like 1000 grit to powder-like 8-grit.
- 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 Indianapolis IN. 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.
