Custom Metal Finishing Services

Grinding a metal part will remove burrs, deep cuts or saw marks. It also prepares the part for polishing. Polishing is a form of grinding that involves smoothing the part so that it has an even and completely flat surface.


The three kinds of grinding we offer are:

Vibratory Grinding

Vibratory grinding helps minimize mechanical surface damage. The metal part is abraded by the repeated high-frequency vibrations.

Tumbling

Tumbling is used to provide a smooth finish on metal surfaces. Rather than being abraded by grit or vibrations, tumbling requires the part itself and a tumbling machine to get the surface shiny and free of imperfections.

Polishing

Polishing can remove what is left over from grinding, but is very rarely used on its own. Polishing is a less harsh method of smoothing the surface and great to use in conjunction with one of our other finishing methods.
