Stock Removal During Electropolishing

Often the last step in the manufacturing process, electropolishing is a “reverse plating” process that removes the outer skin of metal instead of depositing metal on the surface. . The process removes a uniform layer of metal from parts’ surface to remove surface defects. Using a combination of chemicals and electrical current, electropolishing carefully removes surface imperfections and contaminants from metal parts removing as little as .0002”” up to .003”” (.0001” to .0015” per surface) to produce the desired surface finish

Electropolishing, often the final step in the manufacturing process, can effectively treat sharp edges to achieve the proper finish. Because electropolishing can be used with almost any alloy, including specialty alloys like Nitinol and titanium, it is a preferred finishing method for part engineers and manufacturers.

Whether the final, desired edge is sharp or dull, electropolishing can achieve the desired finish on even the most fragile parts.
