Finishing Options

As-Machined

This is a finish option with the fastest turnaround. Parts are left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, which can be removed upon request.

Coating services
  • Zing Coating / Galvanising
  • Electroless Nickel Plating
  • Anodizing: Hard & Colour (Black Hardcoat, Black, Blue, Gold, Gray Hardcoat, Green, Natural Hardcoat, Natural, Orange, Red)
  • Passivate
Surface finishes
  • Polishing / Electropolishing
  • Case Hardening
  • Powder Coating : This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic
Heat treatment
  • Tempering
  • Annealing
Custom

Additional processing and finishes on request.

Overview: What is Laser Cutting?

The Basics Of Laser Cutting

CNC laser cutting is a computer-controlled fabrication process that uses high-density light beam to cut parts out of a sheet metal workpiece. The process is guided by a computer that is guided by pre-uploaded 2D-models. This fabrication process is known for its cost-efficiency and high precision.

Laser Cutters

  • CO2 lasers are normally used for the standard production purposes (e.g. for cutting thinner metals)
  • Nd and Nd:Yag are more powerful and used to cut thicker sheet metal, but are more expensive in use than CO2 lasers

Tolerances

A standard tolerance level for the majority of CNC laser cutters ranges from 0.1 to 0.2 mm depending on the size and requirements. But tolerance levels may be adjusted to our customer’s requirements.

Size Limitations

Any size, maximal thickness of sheet steel up to 20 mm, and up to 6 mm for aluminium.
