Mirror Polishing

Mirror Polishing is often sued on Medical Instruments

Mirror polishing adds shine and protection!

Mirror Polishing is required by medical equipment manufacturers and is essential for finishing surgical instruments. This process is the ultimate extra step that reduces the size of pores in metal, thereby minimizing the transmission of germs and other bodily residues by the instruments themselves.

Mirror polishing is also used by many other manufacturers whose products require a high level of smoothness with a minimum amount of porosity. This process helps metal parts meet critical tolerances required in today’s high-tech machinery.  Check out our Gallery for more photos of Mirror Polishing.

Glass Bead Blasting

Glass Beading is good for polishing delicate items.

Bead blasting is a technique used to remove surface deposits and imperfections in order to finish various materials, such as metals and plastics. While it’s not the only process that can accomplish this task, it does offer many advantages. Below are a few of the top reasons why you should choose bead blasting for your products.

The Advantages of Bead Blasting
1. Low Costs

Glass beads are more expensive to produce than other materials like silica sand, which makes them the most cost-effective abrasive blasting method. While the actual cost of the service depends on the size of the surface and beads, most of the costs are attributed to labor rather than materials. 

2. Safety

Glass bead blasting is safe because it’s lead-free, environmentally friendly, and doesn’t create dust. The glass beads are made from recycled glass, which helps to reduce the carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. Also, the lack of dust helps to prevent environmental contamination due to air pollution.

3. Less Risk of Damage

One of the main benefits of bead blasting is that it can remove grease, layers of paint, and other types of residue, without the risk of harming the underlying surface. This allows it to be used as a finishing process to smooth out the coating of the final product. Additionally, after the bead blasting process, the object’s surface will be hardened, preventing future deformities. 

Vibratory Polishing

The process can improve the function and appearance of the parts by removing imperfections that occur during the manufacturing from cutting, stamping, or heating. This process prepares parts for coating, if necessary.

Polishing machines typically use some kind of media. Made of plastic, ceramic, or porcelain, it combines with a specially formulated liquid. From here, vibration and rotation cause the media to rub against metal parts. The friction that results removes imperfections, rust or scales, and/or polishes the metal.
