CNC Machining Surface Finishes
We offer in-house precision CNC machining surface finishes including:
Anodization (Type II & Type III) – Anodization creates a layer of anodic oxide on aluminum, which provides corrosion resistance and durability, and can be used to change the color of the component.
Electroplating – Electroplating is used to add a thin, uniform layer of metal to a completed metal part.
Bead Blasting – Bead blasting uses tiny glass beads to create a uniform satin or matte appearance on the completed part for aesthetic purposes.
Polishing – Polishing is used to remove surface imperfections and buff the part or component to a mirror-like finish. surface roughness after polish is around RA0.01 μm-RA0.02μm.
Brushing – Brushing uses a fine, unidirectional grit to create tiny grooves in the metal component, leading to a unique appearance.
Laser engraving – Laser tools can be used to etch brand names, serial numbers and other information into completed parts.
Powder coating – Powder coating is used to add a layer of polymer paint, which enhances the appearance of the part and also adds durability and corrosion resistance.
As machined – This surface finish includes removal or sharp edges and deburring, but no further finishing. Tool marks will be visible. Typical surface roughness is around RA0.05 μm-RA0.1μm,
