Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Kansas City MO
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. Imperfections on the walls of interior passages can be especially problematic. 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 Kansas City MO offers the ideal solution.
Using our abrasive flow machining technology, we can polish away microscopic pits and burrs left by the manufacturing process to give your parts the high-quality surface finish you require, without removing so much material that the part’s blueprint specs are exceeded. This method of internal polishing in Kansas City MO is vastly superior to hand tools because it reaches every internal surface and removes material uniformly. When we’re done, your part will have the high-quality surface finish needed for optimum performance and durability.
Here’s How Internal Polishing in Kansas City MO 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 choose the appropriate grit for the job. Typically, for internal polishing in Kansas City MO (as opposed to aggressive surface removal) a fine grit is needed.
- 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 Kansas City MO. Drawing on our many decades of experience polishing all kinds of metals, including titanium, Iconel, super alloys, aluminum, bronze, copper, and more, we can create the perfect custom process just for you and deliver reliable results every time.
