Surface finishing is an important part of any manufacturing process and that’s why we provide a range of surface finishes to help all kinds of clients. We specialize in machining, polishing, painting, sandblasting and many other finishing processes. Our technicians are well versed in all aspects of surface finishing techniques so they can make sure you get exactly what you need.
Types of surface finishes for CNC machined parts
When it comes to CNC machined parts, the surface finish is an important consideration. The type of finish depends on the material being machined, as well as its intended use. At our company, we provide a range of different surface finishes so that customers can select the one best suited for their application.
From mirror-like polished surfaces to light sandblasting for increased grip and texture, there is an option to fit virtually any need. In conclusion, our team is available to discuss the various options and help customers achieve their desired result.
The as machined is the standard surface finish for our parts. It removes sharp edges and clean removes burrs from the parts. The surface roughness of the machined part is 3.2 μ m (126 μ in).
Anodizing is a process that can be used on CNC machined parts to enhance their performance, appearance and durability. It immerses the part in an electrolyte bath and applying an electric current which helps create a protective oxide film on its surface.
Black oxide is also referred to as blackening, and it adds a matte black finish to the metal, making the surface look darker in contrast to its original state. It makes the CNC parts appear more aesthetically pleasing while also protecting it from corrosion and rusting.
The goal of polishing is to enhance the natural beauty of the material so that it looks better than when it was first created.
Bead blasting is a finishing process that uses small, round particles to force abrasive material onto any given surface. This process can be used to improve the surface of CNC parts by smoothing and rounding out rough edges, removing burrs and other surface imperfections.
Brushing is a process that ensures the cleanliness and accuracy of a final product. This involves using wire brushes to remove metal burrs, shavings and any other contaminants from the surface of the part.
Electroless nickel plating
Electroless nickel plating is an incredibly useful process for adding a protective layer of metal to a variety of surfaces. It involves immersing the object in an electroless nickel solution, which then deposits nickel onto the surface.
Powder coating uses a fine powder that is electrostatically charged and then sprayed onto the desired product. It finally forms an incredibly durable finish that can withstand harsh weather conditions, corrosion, chemicals and abrasion far better than traditional wet paint.
surface finishes FAQs
The advantages of surface finishing are numerous:
It provides an attractive aesthetic finish, increases the lifespan of the product, and can also protect against corrosion and staining.
Additionally, surface finishing can reduce the friction between two surfaces, resulting in better performance and less wear on machinery components.
Customers who opt for surface finishing will benefit from improved aesthetics, increased product life, and improved performance that will last for years to come.
When it comes to finishing plastic parts, there are a variety of options available that can give the product a desired surface finish.
One of the most common and popular types of surface finishes used in plastic parts is electroplating. This method uses an electrical current to deposit metals or nonmetallic particles onto the surface of the part, forming an even layer which gives it a desirable look and feel.
The metal plating also helps protect against corrosion and wear and tear, making it ideal for many applications where durability is important.
Another popular option for finishing plastic parts is painting or powder coating. This process involves applying paint or powder coats to the part’s exterior, resulting in a uniform coating with superior protection from fading over time when compared to other methods.
