Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Santa Ana CA
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. This can cause all kinds of problems, from less than optimal performance of the manufactured part to premature failure due to stress.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Santa Ana CA 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. 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 Santa Ana CA. The result is a longer lasting, better performing part.
Here’s How Internal Polishing in Santa Ana CA 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 Santa Ana CA (as opposed to aggressive surface removal) a fine grit is needed.
- 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.
Obviously, a great deal of customization is possible with our internal polishing in Santa Ana CA. 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.
