Booth 4156 Specializes in deburring, polishing, and edge conditioning of metal workpieces via abrasive flow machining, electrolytic machining, and thermal energy method.
Automakers and the racing industry are the latest beneficiaries of abrasive flow machining (AFM), a process discovered over 35 years ago to deburr and finish complex internal passageways on critical aircraft hydraulic and fuel system components.
The variety of processes now used range from more advanced manufacturing processes such as rapid prototyping and abrasive flow machining to traditional machining, grinding, welding, drilling, and tapping processes that have been fine-tuned to the precision needs of the medical industry.
But for manufacturers with specialized surface-finishing needs, such as ultrasmooth finishes, precision radius generation, or absolute burr removal, we believe abrasive flow machining provides a high-precision product-finishing method with good repeatability and flexibility to adapt to changing technologies and manufacturing processes.
