What Are the Benefits of Electropolishing?


When people discuss electropolishing, the first thing that comes to mind is a part with a bright finish. Though the bright finish is the most identifiable trait, there are some important, often overlooked benefits of this material removal process. These benefits include deburring, microfinish improvement, ultracleaning, improved corrosion resistance, fatigue life improvement, and sizing. These metal improvement benefits offer great promise to design and production engineers for cost savings and product improvement.
