A global leader in the world of metal surface finishing equipment
RESPECT THE TOLERANCES AND INITIAL SHAPES
DLyte offers a wide range of benefits over traditional polishing systems which drastically influences the final part’s functional performance. Metallic parts used for high-precision applications within industrial sector must satisfy strict geometrical tolerances and present reduced roughness at microscopic level to ensure minimum friction, exact coupling and high wear and failure resistance.
These include increased corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, resistance to erosion and premature aging, excellent biocompatibility, and improved adherence of subsequent coatings and better appearance and brightness.

system that improves the results of hand polishing”.
A solution for each
material and geometry
Provides a solution to the most common industrial metals and alloys. The applications for DLyte finishing technology range from grinding, rounding and deburring to surface smoothing and high gloss polishing of high precision and aesthetic parts.
Non abrasive polishing
DLyte is the first non abrasive surface finishing system able to reduce substantially the roughness. Being a non abrasive process allows to reduce the rougness keeping the initial shapes and respecting the tolerances.
“DLyte performs at least two times better surface quality than the next-best alternative post-processing technologies”.
Analyzed by Fraunhofer IAPT.
Additive manufacturing is one of the most disruptive technologies with a wide range of applications in the industry as it allows short series and new morphologies which were not possible to achieve with existing manufacturing technologies. However, one of the barriers to the AM industry growth is the surface quality achieved.
The combination of AM and DLyte enable the use of AM for high precision applications where coupling and wear and failure resistance become critical.
Mirror finishing in one step
Fully automated polishing to a mirror finish in one step. Mechanical surface finishing requires several steps to achieve mirror finishing and liquid electropolishing generally reduces surface roughness readings of a non-electropolished surface by only 50%.
Enhance corrosion resistance
Corrosion is one of the main factors reducing the lifespan of mechanical parts. Most applications require a surface treatment to be performed after polishing to comply with the corrosion resistance requirements of the industry.
DLyte is the unique system able to remove roughness substantially and improve the corrosion resistance of the metal pieces at the same time reducing the number of processes required in the manufacturing process.
DLyte achieves better corrosion resistance than liquid electropolishing. The dry electropolished sample analyzed has lower surface roughness and more luster than liquid electropolished sample.

Fragile parts finishing
The part with fine geometries require high quality surface finishing with the disadvantage of requiring a non-aggressive process to avoid damages caused by mechanical energy. DLyte is suitable for these applications as is an electro-chemical process.
Compared with the liquid electropolishing DLyte is more controllable and works efficiently at micro and macroscopic level.
Time saving and lower cost production
An automatic process which reduces the complexity of the current multi-step processes, reducing labor costs and eliminating the need to rework parts and the production of defective parts.
Easy waste management
and low waste and
DLyte is a clean, non-hazardous process. It does not generate dust and noise and replaces manual surface finishing processes related to occupational diseases. By reducing the traditional multi-step process, DLyte improves working conditions, and drastically reduces the toxicity of the current polishing.
Improvement of the working environment
The DLyte process does not require any rubber tip, electrolytic bathing or brushing, but simply an abrasive preparation beforehand. By reducing the traditional multi-step process, DLyte improves working conditions, and drastically reduces the toxicity of the current polishing.
