During my final 2 years of college, I was able to intern for a small, though reputable, metal finishing company. Speciallizing in aluminum anodizing, the company was exploring ways in which to grow. By collaborating with vendors, gaining valuable insight from metal finishing experts, and through my own independent research, I pioneered and developed the company's first electropolishing system. Electropolishing utilizes electro-chemical processes, controlled in part by heat and fluid flows, to polish aluminum and steel parts without introducing the mechanical stresses inherent in other polishing processes. Through careful testing, I was able to fine-tune the system such that it was capable of electropolishing 16,000 parts daily.
