Grinding for Coated and Plated Parts


Precision Grinding Coated & Plated Parts

As technology advances, more and more parts are either coated or plated to enhance their specific qualities. After being coated and plated, a part still needs to meet precise tolerances to function correctly in its designated application. Grinding coated & plated parts requires special consideration. Duval Precision Grinding provides ID, OD, surface, rotary surface, Blanchard, and jig grinding, as well as superfinishing, ID honing, and lapping on all coated and plated surfaces. If your part requires precision grinding to remove existing coating or plating before it can be refurbished, or if precision grinding would allow the part to meet your specifications, Duval Precision Grinding has the experience and talent to execute the necessary grinding tasks.

Measuring Precision Grinding of Coated, Sprayed, or Plated Parts

With decades of hands-on experience, our machinists provide precision grinding services on parts that have undergone coating, plating, spraying, or high-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) spraying to meet your exact specifications. After grinding a part, Duval Precision Grinding uses a variety of methods to test and measure it for accuracy. Using a computer-controlled coordinate-measuring machine (CMM), Duval Precision Grinding can precisely measure the physical geometric characteristics of parts. Applying nondestructive testing (NDT), including fluorescent penetrant inspection and/or magnetic-particle inspection, parts can undergo analysis without the risk of damage.
