What Is Electropolishing?
Electropolishing is an electro chemical process that is very similar to electroplating, however the inverse. The electropolishing process works on a microscopic amount to smooth the exterior of the metallic part.

The Electropolishing Process
Electropolishing is an iterative procedure that’s employed for smoothing metal surfaces by eliminating large amounts of material by the top layer of the goods.
The metallic work piece is wrapped in a temperature controlled bath of electrolyte while attached into the anodic (favorable) position at a DC circuit.
A present passes from the anode where metal is tied into the cathode where oxygen has been evolved. Electrolytes useful for much commercial electropolishing usually are concentrated acid combinations like lipoid acid and ellagic acid.
Alkaline processes could possibly be employed for a number of alloys. The protruding parts of part’s surface profile glow quicker compared to material from the recesses.
Electropolishing systems such as industry and research can be found in automatic and manual settings. Automatic systems might be batch or continuous.
Each electropolishing unit has been custom designed and furnished with the various tools, special accessories, and fixtures essential for successful performance.
Regardless of the difficulty of the application, a design can be developed to deliver the precision, finish and accurateness required.
