Surface Finishes and Materials Many industries depend on Extrude Hone AFM to finish the surfaces on machinery they rely on every single day. Our surface finishing services are critical for any passageway that must continuously perform efficiently. If fuel, air, oil, food, or blood is flowing through your machinery, you want to make sure its surface is absolutely polished and clean. Sending your machinery to Extrude Hone AFM ensures that it is absolutely pristine and performs effectively at all times.

What if I don’t sent my part to Extrude Hone AFM for surface finishing?

Conventionally made machine parts have unfinished surfaces that cause flow restrictions and contamination. Microscopic jagged edges can alter flow and affect performance, and if bacteria gets trapped in there, it might even result in health issues. These jagged edges might even cause object damage, too.

Purpose of surface finishing

Send your component to Extrude Hone AFM and its surface finish will improve dramatically. Surface finishing will enhance your component as well, allowing it to be more precise and stay within the blueprint specifications more effectively.

Which components may be sent to Extrude Hone AFM?

Any metal material may be sent to Extrude Hone AFM for surface finishing. That includes titanium, Inconel, super alloys, hardened, and all difficult-to-machine materials. Components made of aluminum, bronze, and copper may also be sent to Extrude Hone AFM. Each component will perform more precisely and effectively after going through our surface finishing process.

Quantitatively, how much surface improvement can I expect in my component?

Typical finish improvements consist of:

  • 16-18ra improved to a 3-4ra
  • 32ra improved to a 8ra or better
  • 64ra improved to a 16ra or better
  • 125ra improved to a 63ra or better
  • 300ra improved to a 125ra or better
