Finishing

Blasting

Deflashing

We can effectively remove loose flash from die-castings, made from ferrous and non- ferrous materials of different shapes and sizes. Our wheel blasting technology effectively removes flash and blends parting lines to provide an overall uniform cosmetic finish.

Wheel Blasting

We have several shot blasting machines utilizing high velocity wheel blasting
technology with metallic media; including batch tumble blast machines, indexing
rotary table machines, and indexing spinner hanger machines.

Air Blasting

Engineered Finishing offers air blast technology with automated capabilities using indexing blast stations, rotary basket and batch style equipment from Zero, and Clemco. We offer processing with glass and ceramic beads, aluminum oxide, and plastic medias, including specialized wet blast processing.

Cleaning

We utilize metallic media with our shot blasting equipment and wheel blasting
technology to remove heat treat scale and rust both effectively and economically
for a wide range of materials and various sized parts.

Vibratory

Keramo-Finish®

Keramo-Finish® is a state of the art acid free polishing process combining the use of porcelain media and a patented polishing paste. This process can produce a 2 µ inch Ra
or better with a bright cosmetic polished surface.

Burnishing

Ball burnishing creates a bright and shiny, highly reflective surface finish,
using steel media and liquid burnishing compound.

Deburring

Deburring of metal components with preformed ceramic and plastic media to remove sharp edges and hanging burrs.

Cleaning

Cleaning of ferrous and non-ferrous metal parts in combination with vibratory tumbling equipment, media, and compound solutions for removing dirt, grease, rust and oil. EFC also has cleaning capabilities with our ultra-sonic cleaners and parts washing equipment.

Deflashing

Deflashing of parts with preformed plastic and ceramic media and compound to remove flash and or blend parting lines. Often used to minimize surface imperfection and
removal of sharp edges.

High Energy Drag

The parts are attached to special fixtures and “dragged” in a rotational movement
through a bowl or tub of finishing media. The process is effective when higher grinding performance is necessary, compared to typical vibratory finishing processes.

Hand Working

Deburring

Intricate and complex part geometry in today’s modern parts often requires special handling
and sharp/safe edge conditions. When specialized tooling and specific fixturing no
longer produces the desired results or becomes cost prohibitive, hand work or finishing
with soft tooling can be a viable alternative.

Deflashing

Trim dies or conventional/blast deflashing often times fall short or when unexpected delays interfere with delivery and cost commitments prior HAND DEFLASHING is an
option. EFC has the staff and experience to accomplish your requirements in a fast
and economical manner.

Parts Salvage

Rust, corrosion, worn and neglected components can often be salvaged and reworked. Engineered Finishing Corporation can repair and at times, replace components and
sub-assemblies to be functionally restored to original condition more economically
than new replacements. Contact us for an estimate for immediate response and repair.
