Surface Finishing | Decorative Treatment
Laser Engraving (Laser Etching)
Laser Engraving - in use of laser technique, functioning by laser to remove the oxidized layer, so to gain the pattern on the commodity. It provides excellent effects of clearness and never subsiding.
■ Metal Laser：
1. Laser after anodising
2. Laser after painting
3. Laser after brightness
2. Silicone & Rubber
3. Aluminum alloys
5. Any other metal parts
Screen printing - is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes. It can be used to print on a wide variety of substrates, including paper, paperboard, plastics, glass, metals, fabrics, nylon,cotton, PCB and many other materials.
The advantage of screenprinting over other print processes is that the press can print on substrates of any shape, thickness and size.
Vibratory Finishing - also known as mass finishing, is a mechanical/chemical process for the deburring, radiusing, smoothing, polishing and degreasing of individual, mass produced parts.
1. Less wear on your component making them more durable and increasing power output
2. Cost effective and non-labour intensive
3. A smoother surface makes your component run cooler, faster and longer
4. Produces an accurate, controllable and uniform standard of finish- super finishing to 0.03 ra
2. Stainless Steel
7. Sterling Silver
8. Spring Steel
Sandblasting - is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants.
1. Thin Sand
- Ceramic beads
- Glass beads
2. Thick Sand
1. In addition to rust, deburring, deoxidation.
2. Surface treatment can change the finish of the metal surface to achieve decorative effect.
3. Aluminum alloys
Polishing - is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by rubbing it or using a chemical action, leaving a surface with a significant specular reflection.
In some materials (such as metals, glasses, black or transparent stones) polishing is also able to reduce diffuse reflection to minimal values. When an unpolished surface is magnified thousands of times, it usually looks like mountains and valleys. By repeated abrasion, those "mountains" are worn down until they are flat or just small "hills." The process of polishing with abrasives starts with coarse ones and graduates to fine ones.
2. Stainless Steel
8. Sterling Silver
■ Brushed metal is widely used for surface treatment. Through a variety of grinding materials and grinding methods, products appear to have fine hair-like lines, such as wool yarn, straight wire and long straight wire, etc.
1. Stainless (SUS303, SUS304)
2. Aluminum alloys
Diamond cuts creates a mirror-like effect. It highlights logos and the luster of the metal. When diamond cuts is carried out along the edges, it creates a unique and stylish look.
Transfer Printing (Pad Printing)
Pad printing is a method of moving a premade image from one location to another. This process was originally used to move images from metal or ceramic plates to pottery, while newer forms use specialty paper and will transfer to nearly anything. The basic process has ink applied to a specialty surface; that surface is pressed against the printable object, which transfers the ink. Heat is then applied to the newly inked area and the image becomes permanent. This process is similar to screen printing.
All kinds of hard materials with shapes, such as buttons, stationery, household items, glasses, cameras, golf and other printed material.
After forming the object, the font, the graphic is printed on the object in a printed process, and finally through the plating surface treatment to form the plating layer.
Hydrographics (water transfer printing)
■ Hydrographics is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. This process is extensively used to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards, to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim.For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water and can be painted using traditional techniques then the hydrographics printing process can be used.
3. Fiber glass
4. Hard wood
Out Mold Decoration (OMD)
Design printing pattern on thin film, then using “High Pressure Heat Transfer Technology” to directly coat and mold a transparent film (pattern layer) printed with pattern or text on plastic (or metal, glass, Ceramics…etc) surface.
Out mode decoration also defines as dry paint coating process which helps to resolve the environmental problem locally and also decrease the investing cost on equipment.
OMD technology combines vision, touch and functionality processes which also enables the metalized, three-dimensional covering.
1. OMF (Forming Film)
2. OMR (Release Film)
3. Metal (Mg, Al..)
5. Carbon Fiber
6. Glass Fiber
7. Wood Materials
