A new, compact electropolishing system from Metfab Technologies is designed to allow manufacturers of high-value metallic parts such as surgical drills, stents, and screens to sharpen, deburr, passivate, and electropolish them in-house. The system could potentially allow a manufacturer to eliminate outside vendors, quality inconsistencies, and delayed deliveries. Totally enclosed, it only requires a 6x3-foot footprint and can process up to 30 loads/hour, depending upon parts and materials.

These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel. Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
