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!

Services that Help Set us Apart

Engineer & Design Support

Our Process Engineering group possesses first-class technical expertise acquired from decade’s worth of engineering and manufacturing experience. Our Process Engineering group’s primary purpose is to aid our clients in evaluating the manufacturability of their part designs and products. We will aid in conceptualizing new product designs or improve existing ones. By partnering with our clients early in the product life cycle we can create cost-effective manufacturing solutions. Use Kalman Manufacturing as part of your team, getting a manufacturer’s perspective at your design review or cost reduction meetings. We want to get involved, and we want you to succeed.

Process Planning

For our client to be successful, we need to consistently produce the same product ensuring quality and helping to control price. The only way to do this is through written procedures called “process planning.” This is not only limited to the parts we manufacture but applies to all aspects of our business. From a simple or complex component to a single or multi-piece mechanical assembly, we help create the documented steps needed to achieve a make-to-order manufacturing process.

Quality Management

Kalman Manufacturing is committed to providing our customers with on-time delivery of their products of the highest quality. Through continuous quality improvement of our processes, it is our objective to be the best-valued supplier to our customers. Our Quality Management System ensures consistency in all aspects of our operation including the quality of our products. Kalman Manufacturing’s upper management continuously supports and provides direction to reach this goal.

CNC Precision Machining

With over 35 CNC machines on our floor, many 4 and 5-axis, we have top-of-the-line equipment with enough capacity to take on any order. We take pride in being small and agile enough to work with our customers and provide the kind of customer support you deserve, yet large and structured enough to fulfill any order. We have extensive experience optimizing machining processes and reducing cycle times thus allowing us to pass production cost savings off to our customers.
