Finish Process
Powder Coat
As Machined Sharp edge and burrs will be removed
Sand Blast The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance
Brushing  It cleans and scores the metal surface  and can be used as a final finish on materials such as aluminium and stainless steel
Anodized Type II creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Parts can be anodized in different colors-clear,
black, red, and gold are most common-and is usually associated with aluminum.
Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance
seen with Type II.
Powder Coat

Electrostatically applies a dry powder—typically a thermoplastic or thermoset polymer—to the metal surface.

Make the surface more durable than conventional paint without paint’s aesthetic qualities.

Plating

It can be done electrolytically or electroless to improve solderability, prevent corrosion, harden a surface, reduce friction, prevent wear,  and aid in paint adhesion. Plating processes include:

– Passivation, a cleaning process that prevents corrosion in stainless steels by removing free irons from the surface of the material.

– Chromate coating, a corrosion-resistant conductive coating applied on aluminum .

– Zinc, often combined with a Chromate coating over the zinc, is a anti-corrosion self-sacrificing coating (galvanizing or galvanealing) for steels.

– Nickel, often a cosmetic coating and can serve as a substrate for plating processes that cannot adhere to a given metal.

– Tin, a solderable, conductive coating.

More information about Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is the techniques and process of turning flat sheets of steel or aluminium into metal structures or products.

Manufacturing process include cutting, stamping, bending, punching, shearing, forming, welding, revetting, drilling, and tapping etc.

Sheet metal fabrication is used in everything from massive structural projects and construction equipment to complex telecommunications and electronics.
Sheet metal fabrication can be utilised to create functional prototypes or end-use parts.

FAQ

Is there a minimum order quantity?

No. You can order a one-off prototype or 1,000+ units.
