I.D Polishing (Bore polishing/InternalPolishing)

I.D Polishing

This section describes our I.D Polishing and mirror finishing techniques.
For example, mirror finishing of the inner surface of the pipe of the analysis nozzle prevents contamination adhesion and improves cleanability and analytical performance.

The Polishing Equipment is designed and manufactured by our R&D center in Kyoto Factory, and by experimenting with a variety of polishing methods tailored to pipe materials and component shapes, we are accumulating internal polishing technologies.
I.D Polishing is our fundamental technique, which is essential for producing high-quality pipes for medical and analytical equipment.
It is possible to polish the inner surface of parts with complex shapes such as bending shapes, tapered shapes, and drawing nozzles, which are generally considered difficult to polish.

Method of polishing the inner surface of a small-diameter pipe

The list below shows the four pipe interior and part polishing methods available by FUTA・Q.

Polishing method Characteristics Application
Physical polishing Fine tube polishing Polishing method that directly polishes the inner surfaces of nozzle products and straight pipes with abrasive grains Mass-produced products
Special polishing Method of polishing the inner surface of curved pipes or tapered pipes Mass-produced products
Buffing Method of polishing the internal surface of a short pipe with a product surface and an internal radius Φ4 or more. Mass-produced products
Chemical polishing Suitable for parts of complex shapes. Mass-produced products

Method of melting metal surface, electrolytic polishing has problems with uniform finishing because the electrode positions in the pipe are shifted.
Magnetic polishing requires a large-scale device and a number of processes to remove residual abrasive grains in a small-diameter pipe.

List of pipe materials small-diameter and abrasive specifications

The list below shows the specifications of I.D Polishing for small diameter pipes that can be mass-produced and available pipe lengths.
As there are many types of metal materials handled, some of them cannot be listed. So the table below shows standard sizes.

In addition to SUS, we can also handle difficult to cut materials such as titanium and cobalt alloys.
About metal materials and ultra-small pipes not shown in the table, please feel free to contact us.
