Thermal Spray Process Showcase: Machining Finishing Services
At A&A Coatings, we specialize in top-notch machining finishing services that can make the process of grinding, maching and polishing your coatings perfectly. For example, we can perform a single point machining procedure to bring a component within a defined diametrical tolerance, after it has been sprayed and undercut. In addition, we will only employ this procedure when a fine surface finish is not required on the work piece. In this process showcase, we will discuss about our machining finishing processes.
Our Machining Finishing Services
There are three main types of machining finishing services that we offer:
- Single point machining
Under our wet grinding process, we are able to manufacture raw materials into a finished product that will be in a liquid form in the most effective manner. The process will also increase the dispersion and reduce the particle size. Our single point machining processes are suited for sprayed metals that have been cut and require a finish machining step. This process involves turning, planing and shaping which will cut away any unwanted material.
Our polishing services are designed to meet your specific surface finish requirements that cannot be achieved by other processes such as grinding. We have acquired a wealth of experience in the process of polishing sprayed metals and can even work with thin veneers that have been mechanically bonded to a base metal.
