10 Ways Electrochemical polishing will level up your operations.

Our electrochemical polishing machines have been designed to upgrade your operations. Thanks to our unique technology developed by an experienced team of UK engineers, our equipment is guaranteed to streamline your processes and unlock new levels of productivity within your business.

How the process works 

Electrochemical polishing is a process which involves immersing a metal component in an electrolyte solution and passing direct current through it. This reduces the roughness of the piece, removes imperfections, and results in a smooth and lustrous finish.

So, without further ado, let’s get into the 10 ways that your business will benefit from investing in an Electroform machine.

1. Enhance worker safety.

Electrochemical polishing reduces the need for manual finishing and polishing, which can be physically demanding and potentially hazardous. With Electroform, workers are less exposed to repetitive tasks that can often lead to injuries. 

In addition, Electroform machines operate in controlled environments, reducing exposure to harmful chemicals, dust, and fumes that are often associated with traditional polishing methods.

2. Increase your bottom line.

Our Electroform machines polish metal components with high precision in just a fraction of the time it takes using traditional methods. This increased efficiency means faster production and reduced labour costs, ultimately contributing to higher profits.

3. Meet your sustainability targets faster.

From reduced waste to enhanced efficiency and energy consumption, there are so many ways in which Electroform can help contribute towards reaching sustainability goals. Better yet, Electroform follows a circular economy, utilising a recyclable electrolyte solution and consumables. 

4. Reach new levels of precision.

Fuelled by a patent-pending dynamic electrode, Electroform allows for real-time adjustments to the surface improvement process, ensuring that the process is optimised for each unique part geometry. 

Electroform also lets the operator conform the tool to the unique geometry of individual components, enabling bespoke shape correction and fine surface roughness targeting. This unique technology results in a consistent and precise surface finish.

5. Benefit from round-the-clock machine monitoring.

Our machines come fitted with remote diagnostics and monitoring software developed by our experienced team of software engineers. This provides users with the ability to monitor their machines 24/7 via mobile, allowing for quick responses to any issues that may arise.

6. Unlock the power of AI.

Electroform’s software leverages AI, data analytics, and machine learning to predict potential issues before they escalate, reducing the risk of unexpected breakdowns and minimising downtime. 

7. Experience unparalleled efficiency.

By streamlining the polishing process, Electroform contributes to increased throughput and accelerated overall production timelines. Similarly, ECM can polish a component in a single pass, eliminating the need for multiple rounds of polishing.

8. Improve component compatibility.

With Electroform, material is only removed at specific locations, allowing for optimal precision in surface polishing and meaning that the shape of the component is not affected. 

9. Level up workplace efficiency and productivity.

ECM is an automated process, making it highly productive and operating much faster than conventional methods. Multiple parts can be machined per cycle, which results in lower production costs and reduced manual resources.

10. Reduce waste and mess.

Electrochemical polishing generates minimal material waste compared to traditional methods like grinding and buffing. This reduction in material waste makes the post-processing of metal parts more environmentally friendly whilst also resulting in cost savings on raw materials.
