Part 1: Finishing Services that Add to or Alter the Component Surface There are a variety of surface finishing techniques that add to or alter the surface layer of metal for a precision turned component.  These finishing techniques can be utilized for aesthetic reasons, to protect the part from [...]

Anodizing Precision Machined Components

Why Anodize Precision Machined Components? Anodizing precision machined components provides a reliable and relatively inexpensive means of improving the wear resistance, and coloring aluminum and other nonferrous metals. First developed in the 1920s, this electrochemical process revolutionized numerous industries with a need for lightweight, strong, corrosion-resistant aluminum extrusions for [...]

An Overview of Black Oxide Finishing for Precision Machined Components

Precision machined components made from ferrous materials (stainless-steel alloys) can specify black oxide as a surface finish treatment to provide additional protection for the component parts. What is Black Oxide Black oxide is a conversion coating that is produced through a chemical reaction when component parts are dipped in [...]
