Grinding and Polishing

Metal Finishing Services:

 

Nu-Way offers grinding and polishing as part of our custom metal finishing offerings.

 

Grinding a metal part will remove burrs, deep cuts or saw marks. It also prepares the part for polishing. Polishing is a form of grinding that involves smoothing the part so that it has an even and completely flat surface.

 

Three Types of Grinding:

 

The three kinds of grinding we offer at Nu-Way are:

 

Vibratory

Tumbling

Polishing

Vibratory Grinding

 

Vibratory grinding helps minimize mechanical surface damage. The metal part is abraded by the repeated high-frequency vibrations.

 

Tumbling:

 

A common term in geology, tumbling is used here at Nu-Way to provide a smooth finish on metal surfaces. Rather than being abraded by grit or vibrations, tumbling requires the part itself and a tumbling machine to get the surface shiny and free of imperfections.

 

Polishing:

 

Polishing can remove what is left over from grinding, but is very rarely used on its own. Polishing is a less harsh method of smoothing the surface and great to use in conjunction with one of our other finishing methods.
