AFM is used for surface or edge conditioning of internal, external, and otherwise inaccessible holes, slots, and edges. The process is highly efficient and accurate, is repeatable and can be used in one-way or two-way applications.
Highlights of this process include:
Versatility. AFM can be applied to any metal material, including titanium, super alloys, and materials that have been hardened or are otherwise difficult to machine.
Precision. Component material can be removed from targeted and difficult locations such as cross-drilled and intersecting holes.
Process efficiency. Both workpiece roughing and finishing can be completed in a single pass.
Customizability. The abrasive media can be engineered to match the specific application requirements.
Quality and repeatability. The AFM process provides process control that delivers consistent quality and high repeatability.
Enhanced component performance. The AFM process can improve a component’s air, gas, or liquid flow behavior and reduce or eliminate cavitation tendency.
