What is the Superfinish?
It is a physical/chemical process to optimize the surface finish of a part, decreasing the roughness values (Ra and Rz).
It does not remove material, the dimensions of the part are not altered.
Isotropic: it works in all directions, contrary to traditional machining techniques.
What are the advantages?
- Reduces friction between two metals in contact
- Reduces temperature due to less friction
- Reduces material fatigue
- Removes fragmented metal particles in the machining and case hardening processes of the workpiece
- Power increase
- Extends component life
Which parts can be treated?
It is mainly applied in gearboxes, camshafts and all types of sprockets.
How is it done ?
It is a process that lasts 8 hours, in which the pieces that we want to treat are put in a vibration equipment together with a special non-abrasive ceramic material and different chemical products.
