Improve all kinds of metal parts with our highly precise internal polishing in Terre Haute IN
Even the most precise manufacturing processes can leave tiny surface imperfections behind. This can lead to many problems. For example, in the case of an EDM recast part, the rough surface could lead to stress fractures.
Should you just accept these problems?
Of course not.
Extrude Hone AFM’s internal polishing in Terre Haute IN 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 Terre Haute IN 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 Terre Haute IN Works:
- We set up a tool that will hold your part in place and direct the abrasive flow to the specific passages you want to polish.
- We choose the appropriate grit for the job. Typically, for internal polishing in Terre Haute IN (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.
As you can see, our internal polishing in Terre Haute IN is completely customizable to your needs. 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.
