Grain Finish

The most common finish is a straight-line or grain finish for decorative purposes. These can be accomplished using abrasive belts or in some cases the desired result may require both abrasive belt and brush heads. Other purposes for finishing include preparing surfaces for paint adhesion and achieving a specific micro-inch finish.

Burrs

To some, a part is considered deburred when the vertical burr is removed. To others, a part isn't fully deburred until the part has a radius on each edge. With thousands of machines in service and decades of experience, we can design a system that will meet YOUR standards.

Edge Rounding

This can include all actions to break the edge of a part, but is mostly associated with the creation of a radius to the edge of a part. This is more of an edge break than just removing sharpness/deburring.

Calibrating

Grinding with the express goal of removing material and decreasing material variation. This process removes the exterior oxide layer/skin and grinds the material much like a surface grinder – only using a wide belt abrasive.

Slag

Heavy slag is produced during thermal cutting operations: Oxy-Fuel and Plasma Cutting. High Definition Plasma Cutters and Lasers should not produce enough dross to fall into this category.
