DLYTE TECHNOLOGY
The First Dry Electropolishing System

The patented and revolutionary technology grinds and polishes metals by ion transport using free solid bodies. Parts are clamped with a holder and placed into a bucket of proprietary solid sand media material – unique for each particular metal.

The process only removes material from the peaks of roughness. The media does not just touch on the edges of the part but also penetrates the internal cavities which cannot be accessed mechannically with traditional polishing processes.

DLyte Process - Creatz3D

There are 3 key factors to consider for the process.

  1. Material
    Different parts require their individual customized process. The final result is dependant on the electrolyte formulation and process parameters.
  2. Part Dimensions
    The part’s geometry, shape, and size will determine their movement in the media, and parameters must be customized to allow for optimal media flow and electricity through the surface to achieve even homogeneity.
  3. Custom Parameters
    The parameters and polishing duration is dependant on the media size, initial roughness, desired finish, and the manufacturing process.
