Impreglon Australia is proud to announce that we are now working with the Japanese earthmoving giant Komatsu. Founded almost a century ago, the Japanese company has since developed the world’s most extensive range of earthmoving, mining, construction and utility equipment.
Komatsu’s metal finishing challenge involved the removal of swarf from vital stainless steel value housing components. After machining, these components were found to have burrs and debris retained inside small holes and around their inner edges.
Clearly, Komatsu’s vital role in supplying heavy duty machinery to the Australian mining industry means their equipment must perform flawlessly and be able to maximise uptime for this vital economic sector. We are excited to be able to help them achieve this.
Electropolishing, also known as electrochemical polishing, anodic polishing or electrolytic polishing, is an electrochemical process that removes material from a metallic workpiece. It is used to polish, passivate, and deburr metal parts. It is often described as the reverse of electroplating. It may be used in lieu of abrasive fine polishing in microstructural preparation.
Komatsu built its first crawler tractor more than 65 years ago and has since developed the world’s most extensive range of earthmoving, mining, construction and utility equipment. Komatsu Australia today offers a full product line up with quality parts and reliable service to meet all our customers’ needs in the earthmoving industries.
Komatsu Australia’s factory ownership and national coverage ensure the shortest possible lines of communication between factories and our distribution outlets, allowing Komatsu Australia to respond to customer needs and special requests in a timely and efficient manner – and to offer a ‘user-friendly’ consistency of services and commercial arrangements nationwide.
