Electro-Space understands the importance of being able to provide a full range of plating and finishes for our customers. From time saved cosmetic brush surface preparation to the application of smooth and textured paint or powder coatings, ESF can supply protective and decorative finishes for many products, all available as RoHs.

With the introduction of the Kuhlmeyer Dual-Belt Grinding Machine TBS stroke sander to our shop, we have increased our capabilities to include cosmetic straight line finishing of stainless steel and steel parts. Our projects range a variety of industries including medical, industrial, commercial, and communications.

This machine, commonly used in high-end manufacturing for finishing stainless steel boxes, cases, panels, and enclosures allows us to create better finished products. By strategically utilizing finishing belts with a variety of grits, we are able to offer our clients brushed cosmetic finish for all of their precision metal fabrication. Our machine’s capabilities allow us to accommodate larger parts (parts as large as 36” wide x 114” long).
