Electropolishing brought two benefits for metal parts, one was glossy appearance by minimizing surface stains or minor scratches, another was corrosion resistance by eliminating surface blemishes to prevent moisture leading to corrosion. It also improved surface adhesion to other coatings.

Laser cutting the stainless steel parts. The sheet metal thickness decided how fast the laser cutting speed, and how big the cut burrs as well.
Precision bending the parts. The long length and thin thickness required more labor and high attention to bend this part precisely and safely.
long sheet metal partsThe laser cut and bent parts prior to electropolishing. The part length also brought challenge to electropolishing capability.
The inside electropolishing quality. Since the nature of this process, It was not easy to get the inside electropolishing quality as good as the outside.
The electropolished parts. From the reflections of other objects on these parts, electropolishing brought aesthetic and attractive appearance.
