Polishing is simply abrading a surface with finer and finer grits until the finish takes on a highly reflective appearance. The grits are applied with ever softer mops which can work on large, wide areas simultaneously, controlled specific areas, or the whole component can be buried in the mop, so called “mushing”. The ultimate ‘Super 8’ finish is a highly specialised version of the commercial finishes usually found in the Europe, involving discs and underwater operation

GRAINING FLAT WORK
Flat parts or surfaces that can be presented flat. The old true-ism is that just one scratch rejects a part, but several million make it look good. We have machines for generating straight scratches, swept finishes, random swirls or our own unique non-directional rain. These can be rough or smooth, generated by abrasive belt, abrasive brush or nylon web material. And they can be short or long, continuous if required.
GRAINING SHAPED WORK
Nearly everything we can do flat, we can do on a shaped component.
Where straight graining is required, blending in with neighbouring faces can require directionally programmable machinery, or the finish can be made random for subsequent hand finishing. Finishes can be rough or smooth, generated by abrasive belt, abrasive brush or nylon web material. And they can be short, long or continuous as required.
CALIBRATING & TOLERANCE GRINDING
With the correct abrasive mineral, travelling at the correct speed, with the correct pressure, and there is enough power to do the job, on a robust enough machine with a sophisticated control system to monitor and maintain the process, high stock removal rates of hard material, to extraordinarily tight tolerances (0.05mm over slabs of 2500x15000mm) can be achieved and maintained. Sanding paper has come a long way, and only few people realise just how far. It's time for you to look into it and get huge savings!
