Capabilities
   Capabilities       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)       In the abrasive flow machining (AFM) process, a mixture of abrasive grain in a high viscosity carrier media is passed through the ID or internal openings of the part. AFM processes are used to deburr, polish and generate controlled radius geometry in components.  Orbital AFM processes are used for external finishing and geometry control. MicroAFM processes are used to radius, deburr and improve the surface finish of orifices in nozzles, fuel injectors, spray tips or other parts with very small or micro-sized holes. 
   Buffing / Polishing       Polishing, buffing, and belting processes are metal smoothing operations that change the surface appearance of the metal. These operations can be for aesthetic and/or functional purposes. 
   Chemically Accelerated / Isotropic (ISF)       Supplier has chemically accelerated or isotropic superfinishing machines. ISF machines are designed to utilize chemicals to accelerate the material removal or finishing process.  Isotropic superfinishing and electrochemical grinding are examples of chemically accelerated processes. 
   Electropolishing       Electropolishing is often referred to as a "reverse plating" process.   Electrochemical in nature, electropolishing uses a combination of rectified current and a blended chemical electrolyte bath to remove flaws from the surface of a metal part. The resultant surface is clean and bright.  This feature helped coin the name:  Electropolishing. 
   Honing / Superfinishing       Honing and super finishing are precision finishing process for generation of very flat, smooth or low Ra surface finishes.  Honing and superfinishing can maintain much greater control over geometry or flatness compared to handheld buffers, offhand polishers and tumblers or mass finishing machines. 
   Mass Finishing (Tumbling / Vibratory)       Mass finishing processes are methods for bulk processing of parts.  Tumbler, disc, drum or vibratory finishing equipment is used with abrasive media and compounds. The movement of the media and compounds against the parts imparts the desired surface finish. 
   Mirror Finishing       Supplier has the capability to provide surface with a mirror finish. 
   Peening       In the shot peening process, smooth glass beads or metal shot are blasted at a surface.  They impart compressive residual surface stress, which removes residual tensile surface stresses.  Shot peening improves fatigue strength or performance under high number of load cycles. Shafts or other components exposed to high number of load cycles often require parts or materials with higher fatigue strength. 
   Sanding / Grinding       Sanding and grinding processes are used for fine to rough surface finishing operations. Abrasive discs, belts or grinding wheels are used to remove surface irregularities and clean and/or produce the desired surface finish. 
   Other       Other unlisted or unspecified forms of surface treatment.

Materials
   Material / Substrate Capabilities       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       A bluish silver-white malleable ductile light trivalent metallic element that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Carbide       Carbides include silicon carbide, tungsten carbide and titanium carbide as well as other compounds of a metal (Ti, W, Cr, and Zr) or metalloid (B, Si) and carbon. Carbides have excellent wear resistance and high hot hardness. 
   Ceramic       Materials made of nonmetallic minerals, such as clay, that have been permanently hardened by firing at a high temperature. Most ceramics resist heat and chemicals. 
   Composites       Composite materials typically consist of a matrix and a dispersed, fibrous or continuous second phase.  The second phase may reinforce (strengthen or stiffen), alter electrical or magnetic properties or enhance wear or erosion resistance. 
   Copper / Copper Alloys       A common reddish metallic element that is ductile and malleable and is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity.  Copper alloys are specified for applications where superior corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and good bearing surface qualities are desired.  All copper-base alloys are easily plated, brazed, soldered and machined. 
   Glass       Glass is a hard, brittle material consisting of a mixture of silicates that is usually transparent or translucent. It is considered to be a cooled liquid rather than a true solid. 
   Iron / Cast Iron       Iron is a heavy, malleable, ductile, magnetic, silver-white metallic element.  The term "cast iron" refers not to a single material, but to a family of materials whose major constituent is iron, with important trace amounts of carbon and silicon. Cast irons are natural composite materials whose properties are determined by their microstructures - the stable and metastable phases formed during solidification or subsequent heat treatment. The major microstructural constituents of cast irons are: the chemical and morphological forms taken by carbon, and the continuous metal matrix in which the carbon and/or carbide are dispersed. 
   Metal       Metals and alloys such as steel, copper, stainless steel as well as more exotic alloys such as titanium, zirconium, niobium, or palladium. 
   Nickel / Nickel Alloys       Nickel and nickel alloys such as such as Monel®, Kovar®, Invar®, Inconel®, Incoloy®, Hastelloy®, and others. Monel, Inconel and Incoloy are registered trademarks of Special Metals Corporation.  Kovar and Invar are registered trademarks of Carpenter Technology. Hastelloy is a registered trademark of Haynes International. 
   Precious Metals       Relatively scarce, highly corrosion resistant, valuable metals found in periods 5 and 6 of the periodic table. They include ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, silver, osmium, iridium, platinum, and gold. 
   Plastic       Any of numerous organic, synthetic, or processed materials that are mostly thermoplastic or thermosetting polymers of high molecular weight and that can be made into objects, films, or filaments. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Steel / Steel Alloys       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable when under suitable conditions, and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Titanium       Titanium is a hard, lustrous, silvery, element that is relatively abundant in the Earth's crust.  It is known for its lightness, strength, and corrosion resistance.  For this reason it is used widely in the aerospace industry and the medical fields (e.g., replacement joints).  When alloyed with other metals, especially steel, it adds strength and oxidation resistance. 
   Wood       Wood is often cut and dried for use as building material and fuel. 
   Specialty / Other       Other, specialty, proprietary or unlisted material type.
