Post Processing

If you need your CNC machined parts to be post-processed, just indicate it in the Instant Quoting Engine in a couple of clicks

We offer a number of post-processing and surface finishing services both for CNC machined parts and sheet metal. Post-processing improves characteristics of the parts: their surface roughness, general durability, corrosion resistance, or their appearance.

Coating services

Galvanic Zink

Purpose: Zink coating (galvanization) protects parts from rusting.

Materials: This method is suitable for steel and iron.

Nickel & Chrome

Purpose: Nickel and chrome coatings (plating) are often used for decoration, anti-corrosion purposes or to increase surface hardness.

Materials: these methods are suitable for parts out of all metals.

Anodising: hard & colour

Purpose: Anodising protects parts from corrosion, provides their durability, and makes parts non-conductive. Parts can be dyed upon anodizing.

Materials: anodizing is suitable only for aluminium and titanium.

Surface finish

Polishing

Purpose: polishing is used to remove marks left from CNC-machining, contamination and oxidation and improve appearance of the parts.

Materials: applicable for all materials.

Blasting

Purpose: bead blasting is used mainly for improving appearance characteristics of ready parts.

Materials: applicable for all materials.

Painting & Powder coating

Purpose: powder coating is used to increase smoothness of surfaces and make parts resistant to corrosion. Powder coating can be also used for colouring purposes.

Materials: applicable for all materials.

Heat treatment

Quenching and tempering

Purpose: quenching is used to increase surface hardness of parts. Tempering reduces brittleness of the quenched parts.

Materials: this method is suitable mainly for steel and steel alloys.

Normalizing and tempering

Purpose: normalization or annealing process eliminates stresses from CNC machined parts, which stabilizes mechanical properties of the parts, while tempering reduces brittleness of the quenched parts.

Materials: stress relieving is suitable for all alloys. Tempering is suitable for only steel alloys.

Overview: What is Waterjet?

The Basics Of Waterjets

Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure jet of water as a cutting tool. The process is guided by a computer that follows a pre-uploaded CAD model. Waterjet cutting technology does not alter the structure of the materials as it happens with laser or plasma cutting because of the heat. As the result, the cut paths have smooth edges and often do not require polishing.

Waterjet Cutters

  • Water-only cutting: it uses pure water and is applied for cutting soft materials like polymers
  • Abrasive waterjet: it uses water mixed with an abrasive and is applied for cutting harder materials like aluminium, steel or titanium

Tolerances

A standard tolerance level for the majority of CNC waterjet cutters ranges from 0.05 to 0.1 mm. Tolerance levels can be adjusted to our customer’s requirements

Size Limitations

Maximum thickness of sheet metal possible for waterjet cutting varies depending on the metal and tolerance requirements. It can reach 75 mm for steel.

Material Selection

Overview: What is Plasma Cutting?

The Basics Of Plasma Cutters

 

CNC plasma cutting technology is used to cut sheet metal of higher thickness (up to 300 mm) in comparison to laser cutting, which is used for thinner sheets (up to 15 mm). The technology of plasma cutting uses a jet of hot plasma to cut parts out of conductive materials. The cutting occurs as the result of establishing an electric channel of superheated gas between a plasma cutter and the material. As in the other CNC machining technologies, the CNC plasma cutting process is guided by a computer that follows a pre-uploaded CAD model.

Plasma Cutters

There are 2- and 3-axis types of plasma cutters available on the market.

Tolerances

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

Size Limitations

Any size, maximal thickness of sheet steel up to 300 mm, and up to 200 mm for aluminium.

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. But tolerance levels may be adjusted to our customer’s requirements.

Size Limitations

Any size, maximal thickness of sheet steel up to 15 mm, and up to 6 mm for aluminium

Overview: What is Sheet Metal?

The Basics Of Sheet Metal Fabrication

Sheet metal fabrication is the process of turning flat sheet metals, typically 0.15 mm to 10 mm thick, into parts and structures of various shapes. The stock materials for this process are flat metal sheets. Sheet metal fabrication is used to create objects such as enclosures, chassis, brackets, stamped features, curls, etc. It is also used for decorative purposes to make patterns in metal sheets.

Overview: What is CNC Miling?

The Basics of CNC Machining

CNC milling is a technology of computer-controlled (CNC) machining. It uses a cutter to remove material from a solid workpiece. The commonly used CNC milling machines in the industry are of two types:

  • 3-axis (X, Y, Z orientation)
  • 5-axis (X, Y, Z + A – rotational axis around X, B – rotational axis around Y)

Overview: What is CNC?

The Basics Of CNC Machining

CNC machining stands for computer numerical control and basically means that a machine is controlled by a set of commands from a controller. This code normally comes in the form of a list of coordinates known as G-code. Any machine controlled by this code can be referred to as a CNC machine, be it a milling machine, a lathe or even a plasma cutter. In this article we will focus on different types of CNC mills, lathes and the combination of these. The movement of CNC machines can be defined by their axes; these are X, Y and Z with A, B & C axes for more advanced machines. The X, Y, Z axes refer to the main cartesian vectors and the A, B, C axes refer to rotation about these axes. CNC machines typically operate in up to 5 axes.
