If you’re sourcing machining or die casting then you’ll no doubt be focused on just that – the initial process. Centring your search on the range of services available to you such as aluminium die casting, gravity die casting, pressure or structural die casting.

But it’s important not to lose sight of the end goal – the quality of the final component produced. Which is why finishing is so important too. Whether for appearance or performance, the facts remain the same – surface finishing is a key part of the process to ensure you achieve a quality die cast and shouldn’t be overlooked.

 

What is finishing?

In most cases, a die cast or machined component should go through a final process of surface finishing. Why? Because this will help to ensure the quality of your end product.

Finishing can not only increase durability and accuracy, but it can add to the aesthetics of a component too.

During most machining and casting processes, metal imperfections can occur. Pieces become burred and sharp edges or compressions form. Whilst at first glance these may seem inconsequential, they can have a real impact on the end functionality and appearance of a product.

Going through a final ‘finishing’ stage ensures that your end result fully meets specifications and that parts look and function exactly as required.
