Isotropic Finishing

It seems recently there has been more talk about the advantages of an isotropic, non directional finish on machined surfaces obtained through a chemically accelerated vibratory process. It isn't necessary to utilize a chemically accelerated chemistry to achieve an isotropic finish. The vibratory finishing process is what is producing the isotropic non directional finish which reduces or...

Chemically Accelerated Surface Finishing

How Accelerate Surface Finishing (ASF) Works ASF uses a surface active compound that forms a soft film on the surface of the metal part. Nonabrasive media removes the soft film from the high or peaks of the part surface leaving the valleys untouched. The soft film is removed, exposing a new metal surface which will reform the soft film. This continuous forming and removal of the soft coating...
