ABOUT Polishing and Buffing
Technology: Polishing and Buffing Services are finishing operations performed on parts or materials. The services are used to remove burrs, surface flaws, or impurities, and also to create or improve the appearances of parts. Polishing can provide a clean, smooth surface when a part has to be sterilized. It can also improve adhesion, corrosion resistance, or wear resistance.Polishing can be performed on metals and non-metals. It can be done by hand, by machine, or by automated machinery. Polishing processes can be mechanical, chemical, electrochemical, or chemical-mechanical. The material being finished, its shape, its size, and the desired finish determine which processes can be used. Mechanical polishing usually implies a small layer of material is removed generally through the use of abrasive compounds; buffing is a less aggressive procedure usually employed to give a part its final mirror finish. Electropolishing uses electricity and electrolytic baths to remove material from metal parts. It is usually likened to reverse electroplating.Free up technical labor from this often time-consuming manual task
Polishing finishes are usually specified by number and type. A #4 Architectural Finish is characterized as a satin finish with directional grit lines, for example. A #5 Dairy or Sanitary Finish is smoother than the Architectural finish, with careful attention paid to pits that could harbor bacteria. Generally speaking, the finer the finish the higher the cost.
Advantages: Polishing and buffing services typically offer a variety of techniques from manual to fully automated methods.
