Full Range Of Metal Finishing
If you have a product or are designing a product, it is very important to understand the importance of product surface treatment. Most people think that finishing is only for visual effects, but it affects not only the appearance of the product, but also more benefits
- Electrical conductivity
- Corrosion resistance
- Wear or abrasion resistance
- Chemical resistance
- Frictional resistance
- Dimensional accuracy
- Surface quality
Types of Metal Finishes
- Annealing – Also known as heat treating, this process reduces metal hardness, enhances ductility, and improves machinability.
- Anodizing – An electrochemical process that passivates a metal surface by creating a corrosion-resistant oxide finish, this method can also be integrated with various colors for decorative purposes.
- Deburring – Using grinding, tumbling, and vibratory deburring techniques to remove rough or jagged edges produced during manufacturing, deburring is typically employed to enhance metal appearance and improve dimensional tolerances.
- Electropolishing – This electrochemical process removes unwanted material from a metal workpiece. Ideal for making a metal surface featureless, electropolishing can be used as an alternative to traditional mechanical methods such as grinding, milling, blasting, and buffing.
- Laser marking/engraving – Utilizing cutting-edge laser technology, laser marking produces precise and high-quality engraving (lettering or patterns) on a variety of metal or alloy surfaces.
- Plating – Metal plating applies a thin layer of metallic coating on a metal surface to improve specific properties such as its corrosion resistance, appearance, strength, and conductivity.
- Coating – Offering several traditional coating services including powder, phosphate, epoxy, and Teflon coating, QSM can also apply customized surface coatings in accordance with customer requirements.
