Burrs and microburrs left behind by stamping and machining processes can affect the fit, function and safety of metal parts.
When those parts are destined for places like food or pharmaceutical production equipment or fuel lines and gear assemblies used in aerospace manufacturing, burrs are more than just a surface imperfection – they’re a potentially disastrous defect that can cause seizing of screws or fasteners, prevent the proper sealing or connection between two parts or become dislodged near moving parts.
That’s why manufacturers in so many industries specify electropolishing as the finishing process for critical metal parts that have been subjected to processes like broaching, fine blanking, grinding, lapping or milling.
Our whitepaper, The Advantages of Electropolishing for Deburring Metal Parts, will take you through a number of case studies in which medical device, aerospace and food manufacturers used electropolishing to successfully eliminate burrs and microburrs from the surface of their metal parts.
Among other advantages, electropolishing allows for a microscopically precise amount of surface material removal, enabling high-quality results within very tight tolerances.
