Understanding the Cost (and Value) of Electropolishing

Home » Understanding the Cost (and Value) of Electropolishing

If you’re interested in electropolishing, and you’re in the process of comparing this finishing technique to other solutions, you may be wondering how much electropolishing costs. Cost is a factor when making decisions, and it’s always wise to consider the potential savings certain finishing processes can offer over others.

How much does electropolishing cost?

There is no universal answer to this question, as several factors play a role in determining the cost of any given project. Every client is unique, and the quote will reflect how much work is involved, the scale of the job and the type of metals and objects that are due to be electropolished. Additional considerations may also include time frame and application. If you are interested in electropolishing, and you’d like to find out more about pricing, we will be more than happy to discuss your project in more detail and provide you with a quote based on your individual needs.

Although it’s not possible to put an exact figure on electropolishing or deburring costs, it is beneficial to outline some of the potential cost-saving benefits of opting for this finishing solution over others. While the initial quote for electropolishing costs may be higher, for example, than passivation, opting for electropolishing could save you a substantial amount of money in the long-term.

Electropolishing benefits

Electropolishing offers an array of advantages, many of which contribute to long-term cost savings. Examples include:

Reduced risk of corrosion

Electropolishing offers superior corrosion resistance to passivation, which could lead to significant cost reductions. The process of passivation is cheaper, but the results are not as impressive. With electropolishing, you’re investing in a process that produces parts or products that are capable of withstanding tough environments over a long period of time.

Reduced fatigue

Metal parts are used continuously across a wide range of applications. Many of the parts that undergo electropolishing processes, for example, those used in machinery, aircraft, and automobiles are required to cope with stress on a constant basis. Fatigue can take its toll, gradually leading to disintegration, compromised performance and wear. Electropolishing is designed to reduce fatigue, prolonging the lifespan of polished metal parts. When you buy parts or machines that are made up of several components, you want to ensure that you’re investing in longevity and quality.

Improved efficiency

Electropolishing improves manufacturing efficiency, enabling you to achieve more for less. With electropolishing, you can benefit from increased resistivity and weldability, enabling you to lower your operational costs at the same time as improving performance.

Ultra cleaning

Electropolishing offers incredible, unrivaled ultra cleaning capabilities, which remove rust and debris without impacting the aesthetic or the condition of the surface. This eliminates time and effort, and provides longer-lasting, durable products.

The cost of electropolishing varies from one project to the next, but investing in this innovative finishing solution is likely to contribute to savings in the long-term.
