Metal Graining

The Start of a Fabricated Aluminum Control Console. Straight-line and blending of welded seams.

Metal finishing and metal graining of 3-D parts can be very difficult, especially when it’s an afterthought in the fabrication process.  Many custom parts have various shapes, bends, welds and cutouts that make up the finished part. Working around these speed bumps is a challenge that JIT steps up to on a daily basis.  Unlike flat material which can be run through an automated wide belt finishing machine, fabricated parts need to be processed by hand.  These parts are usually going to be a hi-profile, visible finished product that is going to be touched or viewed up close.  Any imperfections at this point will not be tolerated by the client and risk being rejected.  This is a position you never want to find yourself in and if you do, JIT is here to bring you across the finish line.
