Electropolishing

ElectropolishingElectropolishing is a standard method which we use to refine the surface of components. It is carried out in the cleanroom area.
Well tested processes ensure that besides deburring, smoothing and polishing absolutely clean and passivated metal surfaces with low surface desorption are achieved.


Component after electropolishingAt all times during the whole process chain of surface treatment and refinement of components the protection of sealing surfaces and cutting edges as well as the minimization of particle contamination is ensured.
Electropolished vacuum chambers and components are characterized by a better corrosion resistance and a low wear of highly stressed components.

 

Electropolishing in the cleanroom

  • Material: stainless steel
  • Machinable dimensions: L = 510 mm, B = 435 mm, H = 350 mm, tubes up to diameter 50 mm und L = 600 mm, other dimensions on request
  • Max. surface: 26 dm2, larger surfaces on request

Results:

  • Deburred
  • Sealing surfaces protected
  • H2-reduced surfaces
  • Corrosion resistant surfaces
  • Minimized microroughness
  • Particle reduces
  • Operational residues removed

At all times during the whole process chain of surface treatment and refinement of components the protection of sealing surfaces and cutting edges as well as the minimization of particle contamination is ensured.
