Our Process Yields Quality Parts
Quality of Appearance
It's on spec for a reason
Polishing is used to remove defects remaining from the milling process and subsequently from other manufacturing processes, such as annealing and metal bending. This is achieved with a series of successively finer abrasive particles. For flat sheet or plate metals we have the largest polishing machines in the U.S. It can buff and polish sheet material 160 inches wide and 468 inches long in one pass.
