Isotropic Super Finishing

What is isotropic super finishing?

In layman’s terms, Isotropic means “having uniform physical properties in all directions”. In the finishing world, isotropic finishing refers to the surface of the component no longer showing any of the imperfections commonly experienced in manufacturing. Isotropic super finishing ensures a part’s surface will have no discernible marks, lines, or patterns.

Why super finish?

Manufacturing of any machined metal componentry leaves what is called a Surface Finish – peaks, grinding marks, burrs, or other imperfections. This type of finishing can cause additional friction, heat, vibration, and fatigue, adversely affecting and reducing performance.

Typically used in automotive and industrial componentry where high contact stresses are present, Isotropic Super Finishing removes the peaks and leaves a smooth, high-gloss finish that gives you the performance edge and saves you money in the long run.

Using a combination of highly conditioned media, chemicals, and vibration to effectively ‘wipe’ and remove a micro-layer of the metal, without altering the integrity of the part, this process leaves a high-quality surface finish on your componentry that allows it to operate with reduced friction, enhanced efficiency, lower heat generation, increased lubricity efficiency, & reduced metallic stresses. Give your next project the best extension of life you could – superfinish your componentry with ACR.
