Customers come to Able with various packaging requirements, and, in many cases, we are the final step in production before the part goes directly into use or is assembled in a controlled environment. Learn more about our clean packaging capabilities.
As an ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified company, our No. 1 goal is always to meet our customers’ needs—and packaging is one part of the process not to be overlooked. Some metals that we electropolish, such as copper and brass, will oxidize over time if not packaged properly. A part vacuum sealed and purged of oxygen can last in inventory longer and remain in the same condition as the day it was electropolished.
Metals that typically do not oxidize, such as stainless steel, titanium, niobium and others, sometimes need to be packed in an atmospherically controlled environment based on the specific application and cleanliness requirements. This type of packaging is pertinent to many of the various sectors Able serves, such as medical, pharmaceutical, aerospace, food & beverage, semiconductor, high voltage, ultra high purity systems, automation, as well as laser and optics systems.
Following electropolishing or other metal finishing treatments, certain parts need to be packaged with custom packaging methods. To meet the clean packaging requirements for these parts, Able Electropolishing has the ability to purge with nitrogen and vacuum seal parts in custom bags. Parts are packed within an ISO Class 5 Clean Bench for enhanced cleanliness control. At Able, we are proud to provide our clean packaging options to best serve our customers. If you have specific packaging needs for your electropolished or passivated parts, we will work with you to develop the appropriate clean packaging for your particular application.
For components requiring special packaging, please contact our sales department to discuss your needs.
Our tightly controlled quality process and ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certifications make us the preferred partner for many medical device manufacturers across the globe. From implantable devices to surgical instruments, electropolishing is a single-process treatment that results in biocompatible, safe and ultra clean parts.Learn More
We offer aerospace vendors and original equipment manufacturers our signature metal finishing services to increase fatigue-resistance for their metal parts, rendering them capable of withstanding the stress and corrosion that comes with long-term use. Surface abnormalities lead to part failure, but with electropolishing, parts become more reliable and long lasting.Learn More
Our strict adherence to industry standards ensures that pharmaceutical components are electropolished in accordance with ASTM B912 and ASME BPE specifications. These products are clean and smooth, corrosion resistant and contaminant free.Learn More
Corrosion resistance and microfinish improvement are essential for critical automotive parts, making electropolishing an increasingly beneficial option for automakers. Electropolishing both interior and exterior auto parts ensures they will resist premature failure and function at an optimal level.Learn More
Notable examples of appliance parts we electropolish are 400-series stainless steel alloys used in many consumer appliances. Our metal finishing services help increase corrosion resistance for these parts, and by removing the outermost layer of metal withelectropolishing the durability and longevityof these appliance components is increased.Learn More
We have a long history of working with the food and beverage industry. Electropolishing materials for this industry eliminates the buildup of bacterial biofilms, as well as keeping the equipment free of contaminants like Salmonella. When it comes to food and beverage processing equipment, safety and cleanliness are of the upmost importance and electropolishing delivers the level of sanitation required by a number of regulatory agencies.Learn More
From robotics to heavy mobile equipment, the uses of electropolishing in the hydraulics and pneumatics industry are many. By helping prevent premature part failure, electropolishing reduces the amount of downtime and increases the life cycle of these components. Proper surface finish and cleanliness is key in this industry, and electropolishing attains the finishour customers require.Learn More
Improving conductivity and performance is just one benefit electropolishing offers for electronics parts. The surface finish is improved by as much as 50 percent, removing imperfections from the material without removing a lot of material removal from the component.Learn More
