Machine Electropolishes Metal Parts without Using Liquid as Electrolyte
GPA Innova’s DLyte 100I uses a dry electropolishing technology for the automatic grinding and polishing of high-precision metal components and does not use liquid as electrolyte.
At FABTECH 2018, GPA Innova will feature its DLyte 100I, a machine that uses a dry electropolishing technology for the automatic grinding and polishing of high-precision metal components that does not use liquid as electrolyte. The company’s DryLyte process is suitable for steel, stainless steel, cobalt chrome, copper, aluminum and titanium components.
According to the company, this technology improves surface quality by removing material only from the peaks of roughness, preserving the geometry of the component and leaving no micro-scratches on the surface as it polishes to a mirror finish.
It has been shown that the inexpensive chemically accelerated vibratory surface finishing (CAVSF) process can reduce the average surface roughness.
Here’s a primer on the types of finishes required for equipment used in sanitary applications.
An unclear definition has led to an industry standard for classifying burrs.
