AFM Machines and Abrasive Media
Abrasive flow machining (AFM), also known as abrasive flow deburring or extrude honing, is an interior surface finishing process characterized by flowing an abrasive-laden fluid through a workpiece.
This fluid is typically very viscous, having the consistency of putty, or dough. AFM smooths and finishes rough surfaces, and is specifically used to remove burrs, polish surfaces, form radii, and even remove material.
The nature of AFM makes it ideal for interior surfaces, slots, holes, cavities, and other areas that may be difficult to reach with the polishing or grinding processes.
Due to its low material removal rate, AFM is not typically used for large stock-removal operations, although it can be.
Founded the company in 2015.
headquarters are located in Malsburg-Marzell (Southern Germany)
The technical Center is located in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart (Southern Germany)
Core competency is processing of inner surfaces by Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM). Therefore we design, develop, produce and sell everything that is related to AFM. Machines, spare parts, abrasive media, fixtures.
As the members of the 4mi team have worked in several other AFM companies before they joined 4mi GmbH they all have decades of experience in AFM
Certified according to ISO9001:2015
