What is Metal Finishing?
Metal finishing is a term used to describe the process of placing a metal coating onto the surface. It can also involve a process of cleaning or polishing to improve the surface. The following are the benefits of metal finishing:
Limiting the impact of corrosion.
Serve as a primer to promote paint adhesion.
Enhancing chemical resistance.
Increase wear resistance.
Why Use JGM Manufacturing for Metal Finishing?
JGM Manufacturing understands that when you pay for a part, you expect it to be free of dings & scratches; therefore, we have a polishing department on hand to "clean" them up if required. We have close relationships with local metal finishers that have the experience to accomplish anything else!
Precision Welded Tubes
What is Precision Welded Tubing?
A precision welded tube is produced through roll forming strips and/or sheets into a tube followed by an operation of welding the seam together. Welded tubing can be formed cold or hot --of the two, cold forming will result in smoother finishes and tighter tolerances. The following are some benefits of precision welded tubes:
Fast Lead Times
Also available in long lengths
Why Use JGM Manufacturing for Welded Tubing?
JGM Manufacturing understands all ways to manufacture a product so we utilize welded tubing as a cost-effective raw material --you do not always have to start off with a billet! We work with local NADCAP Certified companies.
What is Metal Spinning?
Metal spinning is a process that can be performed by a CNC or Manual Spinning Lathe. It starts with a circled sheet, circled plate, and/or tube that is held by the tail stock against the fixture --the operator or machine would then apply pressure over the raw material against the fixture to bring the part to it's near net-shape. The following are benefits of metal spinning:
Lower material costs.
Good for prototypes as well as high production.
Why Use JGM Manufacturing for Metal Spinning?
You do not find many shops that can offer both spinning and CNC Machining --we have a great deal of knowledge when it comes to spinning to ensure we receive an in-process part that we can finish it off!
What is Heat Treatment?
Heat treatment is a process in which metal is heated and cooled under tight controls to improve its properties. Temperatures can range as high as 2,400°F and the time at temperature can vary from seconds to as many as 60+ hours! Iron and steel account for the vast majority of heat treated materials, but alloys of aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel and titanium can also be heat treated. Heat treated parts are essential to the operation of automobile and aerospace industries. That said, the following are benefits of heat treatment:
Improving workability and machinability.
Improving wear resistance and durability.
improving strength and toughness.
Improving magnetic properties.
Why Use JGM Manufacturing for Heat Treatment?
JGM Manufacturing utilizes heat treatment in several processes to ensure your product is produced efficiently as well as in specification --we have approved suppliers that can meet NADCAP Certifications for the Aerospace and Military & Defense Industries.
