Capabilities
   Capabilities       
   Your choices are...         
   Abrasive Blasting / Shot Peening       Blasting, sandblasting, or abrasive blast cleaning uses power spraying or a tumble chamber to remove all of a metal's visible rust, mill scale, paint and contaminants. It leaves the metal uniformly white or gray in appearance. Sandblasting provides a roughened surface with undercuts that improves the adherence of subsequently applied thermal spray or organic coatings. In shot peening process, smoother glass bead or metal shot are blasted at a surface to impart a compressive residual surface stress, which removes residual tensile surface stresses. Shot peening improves fatigue strength or performance under high number of load cycles. Shafts or other components exposed to high number of load cycles often require parts or materials with higher fatigue strength. 
   Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)       In the abrasive flow machining (AFM) process, a mixture of abrasive grain in a high viscosity carrier media is passed through the ID or internal openings of the part. AFM processes are used to deburr, polish and generate controlled radius geometry in components.  Orbital AFM processes are used for external finishing and geometry control. MicroAFM processes are used to radius, deburr and improve the surface finish of orifices in nozzles, fuel injectors, spray tips or other parts with very small or micro-sized holes. 
   Anodizing       Anodizing is a process for finishing aluminum alloys that employs electrolytic oxidation of the aluminum surface to produce a protective oxide coating. The anodic coating consists of hydrated aluminum oxide. It is considered resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Conventional coatings are 0.1 to 1.0 mil thick and are mostly transparent, but may be colored.  Anodizing preserves the natural luster, and texture of the metal itself. An anodized coating is hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through.  This category includes hard coat anodizing. 
   Buffing / Polishing       Polishing, buffing, and belting processes are metal smoothing operations that change the surface appearance of the metal. These operations can be for aesthetic and/or functional purposes. 
   Chemically Accelerated / Isotropic (ISF)       Supplier has chemically accelerated or isotropic superfinishing machines. ISF machines are designed to utilize chemicals to accelerate the material removal or finishing process.  Isotropic superfinishing and electrochemical grinding are examples of chemically accelerated processes. 
   Corona Treatment       Corona treatments enhance bonding between a surface and polymer coatings or adhesives. 
   Chemical Finish / Conversion       A coating produced by a chemical or electrochemical treatment of the metal surface.  The coatings provide corrosion resistance and provide a surface for better adhesion of primers and paints.  These are not intended to be decorative coatings. Chemical finishes include black oxide and phosphate coating. 
   Deburring / Deflashing       Deburring or radiusing processes round sharp edges or corners. Deflashing processes remove flash or parting lines from forging, casting or molding operations. 
   Electropolishing       Electropolishing is often referred to as a "reverse plating" process.   Electrochemical in nature, electropolishing uses a combination of rectified current and a blended chemical electrolyte bath to remove flaws from the surface of a metal part. The resultant surface is clean and bright.  This feature helped coin the name:  Electropolishing. 
   Hard Coating / Treatment       Coatings or platings are deposited or formed with a higher hardness or abrasion resistance relative to the substrate, or compared to other similar coatings or finishes. Processes include hard anodizing, hard coating, hard plating, and hard facing. The higher hardness or wear resistance is attained through process and/or compositional changes. 
   Honing / Superfinishing       Honing and super finishing are precision finishing process for generation of very flat, smooth or low Ra surface finishes.  Honing and superfinishing can maintain much greater control over geometry or flatness compared to handheld buffers, offhand polishers and tumblers or mass finishing machines. 
   Mass Finishing (Tumbling / Vibratory)       Mass finishing processes are methods for bulk processing of parts.  Tumbler, disc, drum or vibratory finishing equipment is used with abrasive media and compounds. The movement of the media and compounds against the parts imparts the desired surface finish. 
   Mirror Finishing       Supplier has the capability to provide surface with a mirror finish. 
   Oxygen Cleaning       Oxygen cleaning removes combustible oils, greases or other materials that could cause an accidental fire or explosion when in contact with oxygen.  Oxygen cleaning may also involve the removal of excess rust.  Oxygen cleaning is performed on factories with furnaces, autoclaves, aerospace facilities, refineries, pressure gauges, pressure transmitters, regulators, fittings, thermowells, gold mines, hospitals, tubing, pipe, hoses, filters, valves and other assemblies and plants. 
   Passivation       Passivation removes "free iron" contamination left behind on the surface of stainless steel during machining and fabricating. These contaminants may drive premature corrosion and ultimately result in deterioration of the component if not removed. The passivation process also facilitates the formation of a thin, transparent oxide film that protects the stainless steel from corrosion. 
   Peening       In the shot peening process, smooth glass beads or metal shot are blasted at a surface.  They impart compressive residual surface stress, which removes residual tensile surface stresses.  Shot peening improves fatigue strength or performance under high number of load cycles. Shafts or other components exposed to high number of load cycles often require parts or materials with higher fatigue strength. 
   Phosphate Coating       Phosphate coating is a treatment used on steel, iron, castings, and steel-based substrates to protect metal from corrosion and improve coating adhesion.  In the phosphating process, the surface is treated with a solution of phosphoric acid and other chemicals, which react with the metal to form a mildly protective layer if insoluble crystalline.  There are many types of phosphate coatings, including zinc and manganese. 
   Pickling / Chemical Deburring       Processes using an etchants, acids, acid pickles, to etch or chemically remove a layer of surface material or sharp edges. 
   Sanding / Grinding       Sanding and grinding processes area used for rough to fine surface finishing operations.   Abrasive discs, belts or grinding wheels are used to remove surface irregularities, clean and/or produce the desired surface finish. 
   Surface Hardening       Surface hardening processes include ion implantation and diffusion surface treatment processes such as (carburizing, nitriding or Kolsterising®) and localized or induction surface treatment. Surface hardening processes are well suited for improving the wear resistance and corrosion resistance of selected areas of machines, such as the cutting edges of earth-moving machinery. Hardfacing is a coating or deposition process that can also produce hard or hardenable surface layers by welding materials with different properties to a substrate. 
   Other       Other unlisted or unspecified forms of surface treatment.
