High-Quality Surface Preparation for Precision Parts
Finishing requirements for precision parts are not only important for cosmetic reasons but can be critical to the component’s application. Typically, these applications require a change to the surface properties of the machined component compared to the bulk materials properties, such as making a conductive material insulating, improving its corrosion or wear resistance, improving sealing surfaces, or changing the reflectance or transparency of the part.
We have experience in the vast majority of surface preparations and have developed supply chain partners that can provide these finishes while maintaining the critical dimensional tolerances you require. This includes some special preparations that can be particularly challenging, such as vapor polishing (a method for smoothing out certain kinds of plastics at the microscopic level) to achieve optically clear plastic parts. Use Kalman Manufacturing’s expertise and supply chain to ensure you get the surface performance you need on your precision components. Contact us for more information!
