Precise, Reliable Results for Critical Metal Parts
With over 150 people on three shifts five days a week, Able operates a state-of-the-art facility in Chicago, IL where a multimillion dollar investment in robotic automation helps ensure the consistently high-quality results required by manufacturers of tools, parts and devices with critically important functions.
Our electropolishing expertise plays a vital role in the strength, corrosion-resistance and fatigue life improvement of flight-critical metal parts for the aerospace industry and in the ability of life-saving medical parts to resist pathogens with an ultraclean and microsmooth finish.
We specialize in electropolishing services for a variety of common and specialty metal alloys including:
• 300 Series Stainless Steels
• 400 Series Stainless Steels
• Precipitating Hardening Grades
• Unusual Stainless Steels
• Copper Alloys
• Tool Steels
• Specialty Alloys
• Nickel Alloys
• Specialty Steels
• Carbon Steels
Prototyping Collaboration Puts Finishing Expertise to Work at the Start
And while we play a vital role as the “last step” in the process for many critical metal parts, we also use our metal finishing expertise to improve parts from the start by consulting in the design and prototyping stage. Our “Finish First” methodology helps clients avoid design flaws that can trap debris and liquids and impede the ability to create the highest quality surface finish.
Commitment to Our Customers
Our commitment to our clients’ success drives our work toward continuous innovation, down to the customization of our processes for each part, including on-site tooling, custom racking, custom chemical formulation and prototyping runs conducted on full production equipment. We treat every single job as the critically important step that it is and our roster of clients worldwide shows the level of trust that we have earned over six decades of providing state-of-the-art solutions and unmatched customer service.
The Able Difference
We’ve earned the trust of engineers and manufacturers in some of the most challenging industries in the world. That takes more than innovation and state-of-the-art processes. It also means an attention to deadlines, efficiency, reliability and a tradition of continuous improvement. Our clients depend on us for jobs with no room for error. You can too.
