Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Nashville TN
Whether you have a metal part that was made by EDM, additive manufacturing, or some other process, it will not have a perfect surface finish. Rough internal passages can lead to big problems, such as impeded flow through the part or even cavitation damage as microscopic burrs break off over time.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not. Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Nashville TN offers the ideal solution.
After many years of experience, we have refined our abrasive flow machining process to deliver highly precise surface improvements. We can remove a lot of material or a little, but we always ensure we stay within your specs and preserve the geometry of the internal passages. 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 Nashville TN. 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 Nashville TN 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 Nashville TN 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 Nashville TN. 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.
