Done before the anodizing process begins, vibratory finishing also known as tumbling, is done to debur the edges, or adjust the texture of the finished product. This process can be done with both small and large tank runs.
Plugging is typically used in applications where tolerances of certain threads or pinholes are very tight. This process is accomplished by plugging these threaded areas and pinholes to keep them from being anodized during the anodizing process.
Masking is used in applications where plugging may not work for such things as surface designs. This process is accomplished by tapping off areas to keep them from being anodized during the anodizing process.
Done after the anodizing process, Teflon dry film is applied for additional corrosion resistance. This process can also help reduce friction on some parts.
