WHAT IS PLANISHING?
Planishing is a quick inexpensive means of reducing weld build up and improving surface finish. It is similar to a steel mill cold rolling operation only it is limited to the localized area of a weld.
- Reduces weld build up as much as 20 times faster than grinding and with no cost for consumable abrasive products.
- Results in an excellent smooth cold rolled surface finish. This is especially important in stainless products requiring a polished surface.
- Enhances weld metallurgical properties by cold working the “as cast” weld structure.
- Causes the weld to spread out, often the same amount as the original shrinkage.
