ASF combines the benefits of low RMS, non-directional mass finishing with chemical accelerants. The chemical accelerants significantly reduce the process time for hardened surfaces compared to mechanical abrasive methods.
This reduced process time enables you to achieve a very low surface roughness without heavy metal removal and radiusing of the part.
Advantages of Accelerated Surface Finishing:
Achieve low RMS finishes without heavy metal removal or radiusing
Achieve negative skew values by removing surface peaks while retaining micro valleys for lubricant retention
Refine surfaces to mirror-like brightness and very low surface roughness
