AUTOMATIC PLANT FOR SURFACE FINISHING OF METAL MICRO COMPONENTS

Between the months of November and December 2017 Steno srl will activate a new automatic peening or micro-peening system for surface finishing, suitable for various finishing treatments that could be applied to metal micro components, which may have already carried out tumbling processes, and before the various galvanic treatments, PVD coating, sputtering, anodic oxidation, etc. With the new plant for surface finishing we aim to increase our service in the fields of small metal parts, surface treatments of fashion accessories, precision components of various metals, in particular on stainless steel components, aluminum, but also brass, zama and plastic materials, including plexiglass and methacrylate.
The surface finishing process by peening that we can carry out is usually performed on components obtained by molding or by mechanical machining. The peening process can be applied, according to the quality standard to be obtained, with or without the tumbling process; the peening or micro-peening treatment is particularly suitable before the various surface finishing treatments, for example the galvanic ones, PVD coating, sputtering, anodic oxidation, etc.
The peening treatment for the finishing of small components surfaces, made with the new automatic system, is particularly competitive in production costs and lends itself to small / medium-sized components with specific weight content. The finishing effects that we can obtained can be different from one to another, depending on the raw materials used.
We are available to evaluate the technical and economic aspect of the desired finish.
