Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in New York NY
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 EMD recast parts.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in New York NY 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 New York NY 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 New York NY Works:
- We create a tool or holding fixture that will direct the abrasive flow to the areas of the part that require polishing.
- We determine what size of abrasive particles are needed to complete internal polishing in New York NY on your specific part. 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 select a media to carry the grit, ensuring the viscosity of the media and the concentration of the grit are ideally proportioned to achieve the necessary surface improvement.
- 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 New York NY. 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.
