Processing and Finishing

Strong partnerships…the key to success

Over the past 40 years, AFAB Precision Machining has worked hard to establish strong, long-term Outside Processing Partnerships for complete supply chain management and guaranteed delivery of quality finished components

This is a sampling of just some of the finishing services we are prepared to manage for you…

Anodizing – converts the aluminum metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion and weather-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Chemical Film – chromate conversion coating that can be applied to aluminum parts in order to increase corrosion protection while maintaining conductivity.
Powder Coating – popular dry finishing process used for it’s high-quality, durable finish. Passivation – designed to maximize the inherent corrosion resistance of stainless steel parts after machining.
Laser Marking – marks virtually all metals and plastics and various other materials with high contrast and without adding any undesirable substance. Lapping – removal of material to produce a smooth, flat, unpolished surface.
Silk Screening –  printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as sharp-edged image onto a substrate. Bead Blast – form of high pressure cleaning of a metal surface such as aluminum, stainless steel, or titanium, and softer metals such as brass, silver, and copper.
Zinc Oxide – effective for use as anti-corrosive coatings for metals.  Zinc oxide paints retain their flexibility and adherence for many years. Grinding – finishing process that uses a rotating abrasive wheel to smooth the flat surface of metallic or nonmetallic materials to attain a more refined look or a desired surface.
EDM – manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges.  Material is removed by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges.
