The damage to metals can come through normal wear and tear, chemicals, and air pollutants.  The steps of metal finishing comprise Degreasing (removes the grease that is left when the metal is manufactured), Cleaning (remove dirt and other impurities from the metal) to prepare for the metal finishing process.  

There are several choices for metal finishing that can be used to change the surface of the metal so it will be able to resist damage and corrosion.

Finished 3D Printer Parts

Typical requirements are:

  • Anodize (sulphuric and chromic, including colour and dichromate)

  • Hard Anodize

  • Various Plating (gold, sliver, zinc, nickel etc.)

  • Chemical Blacking (hot and cold method)

  • Painting

  • Polishing

  • Passivation

  • Cylindrical and Surface Grinding

Other surface treatments will be catered for as requested.

Metal finishing and surface treatment services alter the finish and surface of an object to improve its appearance and enhance properties such as chemical, wear, and corrosion resistance.

Etone Technology can assist in part finishing. Through our trusted partners we can facilitate plating (anodizing, powder-coating, etc.) and heat treatment along with a variety of other processes to complete your parts depending upon your needs.
