The process of metal fabrication is the creation of metal pieces – such as machines, parts, and structures – through the cutting, bending, reshaping, and assembly of raw materials. At Control Electropolishing, we specialize in metal fabrication services for stainless steel materials.
Benefits of Electropolishing for Metal Fabrication
When fabricating with a stainless alloy, there are typically four other value-added processes involved in the practice, including welding, cutting, forming, and machining. In many circumstances, all of these processes may be performed with iron-bearing tools, which introduce contaminants to the surface of the fabricated metal. Electropolishing is a perfect metal fabrication solution for removing these contaminants from the surface of the metal. A nickel-chrome oxide on the surface is made passive as electropolishing removes a small layer of the material.
