Surface Finishes for CNC Milling

Gain access to quality surface finishing for custom CNC milling parts to remove aesthetic flaws and improve the appearance of your products. We also provide rigid protection and additional resistance and strength to your parts through superior surface finishes.


Bead blasting results in parts with a smooth surface with a matte texture. Used mainly for visual applications and can be followed by other surface treatments.


Clear, black, grey, red, blue, gold.

Smooth, matte finish.

Bead Blasting

Anodizing improves corrosion resistance, enhancing wear resistance and hardness, and protecting the metal surface. Widely used in mechanical parts, aircraft, and automobile parts, precision instruments, etc.

ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, Steel



Powder Coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light.

Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Steel

Black, any RAL code or Pantone number


Gloss or semi-gloss


Electroplating can be functional, decorative or corrosion-related. Many industries use the process, including the automotive sector, in which chrome-plating of steel automobile parts is common.

Aluminum, steel, stainless steel


Smooth, glossy finish


Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface, either through physical rubbing of the part or by chemical interference. The process produces a surface with significant specular reflection, but in some materials is able to reduce diffuse reflection.

Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, Steel




Brushing is a surface treatment process in which abrasive belts are used to draw traces on the surface of a material, usually for aesthetic purposes.

ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, Steel

Our CNC Milling for Various Industrial Applications

The flexibility of 5-axis CNC machining allows the creation of complex components with complex shapes and geometrical details. The stability of the machining tool also gives more consistent and smoother surface finishes. Therefore, you should choose 5-axis machining whenever you need to produce complex parts with tight tolerances.

Our 5-axis milling machines can accommodate a length of 42 inches bar stock. This allows us to work on a wide range of projects for various applications.

The cost of your CNC machining projects is not fixed as it depends on the characteristics of your project such as the design, and tolerances. Machining times of the material to be used in the project also contribute to this pricing. For example, if you’re making a part that has a combined machining and material cost of $2 and a setup cost of $200, one part will cost $202. However, if you make 200 parts, each would cost $3!
