Guide to Chemical Surface Preparation of CNC Machined Parts

Anodized factory

All post-processing adds to part production costs and production time, but the right surface finish can go a long way toward making the original design vision a reality. Metal surface treatments for CNC machined parts typically include various mechanical processes such as tumbling, brushing, and sandblasting, but metal parts can also have chemical surface treatments…

Oxidation treatment of CNC parts

As the economy develops and the consumption structure continues to upgrade, consumers have higher requirements for the appearance and quality of various products, pay more attention to quality, and present the characteristics of personalized, diversified, high-end, and experiential consumption. Therefore, the surface treatment of workpieces in our hardware industry has become particularly important, not only…

CNC Machining Aluminum Anodizing And Alodine Treatment

Alodine Clear

Anodizing: Electrochemical oxidation of metals or alloys (most anodizing is done on aluminum and its alloys). Aluminum and its alloys form an oxide film on the aluminum product (anode) under the corresponding electrolyte and specific process conditions due to the action of the applied current. Anodizing generally refers to sulfuric acid anodizing. Alodine treatment: Aluminum…

Anodizing of aluminum parts

Anodizing aluminum Most non-ferrous metals or their alloys can be anodized. Anodizing refers to the electrochemical oxidation of metals or alloys, and non-ferrous metals or alloys (such as aluminum, magnesium and their alloys, etc.) can be anodized. Oxidation caused by substances other than metals as anodes is also called “anodic oxidation”. In the actual process,…
