A revolutionary Dry Electropolishing Technology
DryLyte® new patented technology for grinding and polishing metals by ion transport using free solid bodies. A revolutionary dry electropolishing that is based in a solid media. DLyte is a polishing system for metal parts that require high performance or superior finishing.
Unlike traditional polishing systems, DLyte system obtains consistent finish avoiding any marks on the surface, patterns such as those generated by machining, and is able to process complex geometries without generating micro scratches on the surface. DLyte respects the tolerances of the piece, delivering a mirror finish.
How it works
“The process extracts the material only from the peaks of the roughness, it does not round the edges but penetrates the internal cavities of the piece to which annot be accessed mechanically”.
The technology works on the principle of ion transport, utilizing the dry electrolyte to slowly work the asperities of the roughness profile, where after a specified time, the part surface has been plateaued without the use of physical abrasive. This results in highly uniform functional surfaces with brilliant finishes.
The Benefits of the technology
Achieves homogeneous results across the surface and eliminates micro- scratches. The system works efficiently at micro and macroscopic level.
Respects the tolerances and preserves the initial shape, even the cutting edges. It is not rounding the edges as there is no abrasion of the surface.
Ra under 0,05 μm. The improvement of the surface quality from 10 μm to 0,8 μm in rotor blade turbines improves the efficiency, reducing the turbine inlet temperature with the associated turbine durability increase.
Enhances negative surface skewness (rsk) which increases the surface bearing contact area (allowing uniform lubricant film distribution) improving the bearing ratio and reducing the friction between the pieces.
