Electropolishing utilizes electrical current and chemicals in an electrolytic bath to remove burrs and produce a high luster finish. This process provides a stress-free polishing method that preserves the surface finish, improves the fatigue life of the part, removes contaminants, passivates, and creates a surface that retards corrosion.

Electropolishing flattens the surface, removes burrs, weld marks, scale from heat treating, and produces a flawless, mirror-like surface. Finishes can be improved as much as 50% RA, or down to an RA of 2, depending on the part. Electropolishing is ideal to reach interior surfaces where other polishing methods cannot. Also, Electropolishing provides a surface that will remain glossy and polished for a much longer period of time than standard mechanical polishing.

Electropolishing has become the preferred method for metal finishing in a variety of industries such as Medical, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Food Processing, Water Treatment, Automotive, Marine, Aeronautics, and Electronics.

If you are considering electropolishing for your stainless steel products or parts, IMC has a special offer for you – we’ll electropolish any one part for FREE!* All you do is simply send us any one part or product and we’ll return it fully electropolished with a price quote and delivery lead time.

Mechanical Polishing

IMC Fabrication - polished metal

Mechanical polishing is the mechanical smoothing and removal of contaminates. This process is used to smooth welds, prepare metal surfaces for electropolishing, or provide a surface with a specified roughness. IMC can provide mechanical polishing on parts 36″ wide and up to 20 ft long.

Mechanical polishing and buffing involves placing shapes on a computer controlled sliding bed, where the parts are automatically conveyed under a buffing wheel that is programmed for optimal speed and strokes to complete the required polishing. Virtually any metal can be polished to a high luster finish using this method.

Precision Sawing

Precision sawing of aluminum is required in many markets such as Building and Construction, Automotive, Truck Trailer, Aerospace, Ordinance/Military, and most forging operations. IMC works closely with our customers to ensure lead times are met and stocking programs are kept replenished. IMC can supply your aluminum needs with a machined finsished product if needed.

At IMC, we specialize in providing solutions to extruders and to original equipment manufacturers and ensuring the delivery of a precision cut part in an on time method, and at the most competitive price.

IMC can cut parts up to 16″ in diameter and as small as .250″. Our cutting tolerances can be held to as tight as .003″ (depending on part design).

Chamfering is used primarily in the forging markets. Putting a chamfer on the ends of the forged rod can prevent stress cracks during the forging process. IMC can chamfer rods from 2″- 8″ in diameter. Our standard chamfer radius is .500, but can be adjusted as needed. Larger parts chamfering is performed manually with a grinding disc on a rotating turning center.


We expertly machine custom parts to your exact specification for a perfect fit every time.


IMC has all your aluminum supply needs covered.  We supply aluminum extrusions; rods, squares, angles, pipe, tube, sheet, hexagon, channel, and custom extrusions to machine shops, home projects, and OEM customers.

IMC’s aluminum stocking and supply programs and JIT delivery planning provides opportunities for raw materials or work-in-process reductions which save your company critical time, expense of inventory, and part processing time.

Our technical team has over half a century of aluminum extrusion and fabrication experience and can provide technical assistance with various extrusions markets and related products. Feel free to contact us for assistance.
