Redline provides full turnkey parts and can look after a large variety of part finishes. We have partnered with a number of different vendors who specialize in their respective fields. Some of the post cnc machining services we offer are listed below.
Redline utilizes a MOD.U.BLAST Pressure Dry Blast Cabinet for bead blasting.
Bead blasting smoothly blends away surface defects, and improves the corrosion resistance of the finished surface. Glass bead finishing is accomplished without dimensional change to the metal surface, and does not impart contamination or residue, unlike other finishing methods. The impact blasting process is fast for energy efficiency, and the bright, clean, precision finish is reproducible, even on materials with close tolerances.
For moving parts, finishing with glass beads improves lubrication and reduces friction. Glass bead finished surfaces create a sealing action that reduces susceptibility of aluminum, magnesium and other metal surfaces to chemicals and corrosion, therefore, extending part life. The glass bead finishing process also improves adhesion capabilities with paint, plastic and rubber coatings. Some finishing applications include: Food processing equipment, medical equipment, Non-specular optical components and it also improves the surface appearance on various products.
Another application method is being used for removing burrs, feathered edges and nicks from tools, equipment and parts, known as Deburring. This is a risky operation. Dislodged burrs can infiltrate machinery and cause damage to surrounding components. Corners and edges must be deburred with precision to assemble and operate parts properly. When no base metal must be removed from the surface of the part, glass beading offers this precision.
