Finishing Process (Prototype Parts)
Selecting the right finishing process can make all the difference in the success of your prototype parts, model or other production parts. The GoProto staff has years of expertise to help guide you to the right finishing process. We have a variety of finishing levels for all processes to produce targets ranging from unfinished to photo-realistic results. Techniques include wet paint, polishing, bead blasting and metalisation. GoProto will have your prototype parts looking how they should.
Colour matching can be achieved by providing a physical sample or a Pantone colour designation. Text and graphics can also be applied to models with rub-ons, silkscreening, or pad printing. Metal parts can be enhanced with finishing with bead blasting, plating, anodizing, powder coating or chroming.
Please let us know what effect you are trying to achieve and we will make it happen.
