Compliment Your Part With Our Finishing Options

Surface finish is an integral and crucial part of manufacturing for robotics and robotic components. This is because robots serve specific end-functions that usually involve grip, hold, grab, and more. The functions required the appendages of the robot to be of certain smoothness, roughness, and texture. The right surface finish will enable them to carry out the tasks effectively, without causing damage to your products or business.
Our finishing options also serve other functions like beauty, attractiveness, and protection of part surfaces. See below the list of finishing options we offer for your robotic components and parts:

  • Texturing
  • Anodizing
  • Polishing
  • Insert installation
  • Media blasting
  • Painting
  • Electroplating
  • Passivation
  • Heat treatment
  • Powder coating
  • Custom
