What is Metal Finishing?

Metal finishing is the process of placing some sort of metal coating on the surface of a metallic part. Metal finishing usually involves the implementation of a process to clean, polish, or improve a surface. The industry includes a wide range of processes with a variety of benefits depending on the application.

Industrial metal finishing can do the following:

Corrosion can steal billions from businesses and organizations all over the world. This can be stopped with anodizing and other metal finishing systems to prevent loss of functionality and a diminished aesthetic.

Metal Finishing - Aluminum Anodizing Systems

Anodizing systems can improve corrosion and wear resistance and also provide better adhesion. QS designs and builds custom aluminum anodizing lines for precision applications.

Metal Finishing - Electropolishing & Electroplating System

Electroplating, or plating, is often included in metal finishing and consists of a process that deposits metal ions onto a substrate via an electric current. QS designs and builds custom plating systems for both decorative and functional needs.

Metal Finishing - Systems Integration

In the Systems Integration process, we will design each subsystem of a particular process to create a fully functioning system.

Metal Finishing - Turnkey Automated & Manual Hoists

QS offers a selection of custom-built hoist systems. The hoists are maneuvered through a programmed routine throughout the tank line and are able to travel precise distances using DME. Safeties will be put in place to protect your operations in case of an equipment failure. Our hoist system solutions include:

Metal Finishing - Chemical Milling & Industrial Etching

Chemical milling or industrial etching are typically used on metals to remove materials and create an object with the desired shape for your purposes PDG builds systems using the following:

Metal Finishing - Wastewater Treatment Systems

Our team can also design and build custom metal finishing systems with water treatment and waste-water treatment solutions.

Metal Finishing - Exhaust Systems

QS can build customized exhaust systems for your facility and process requirements that will be:

PDG offers a comprehensive four-step process for metal finishing systems

Our Process for Designing & Installing Systems

Stage 1: Discovery

The process will start when you fill out and submit a Project Request Form detailing relevant information about your project needs. A team member will get back to you to further discuss your specific needs and may set up an on-site meeting to evaluate the facility, required materials, environmental issues, and any other important pieces.

Stage 2: Planning & Refining

The team at QS will then design a comprehensive metal finishing system design layout, selecting and sizing the equipment. Any feedback from the customer is welcome at this point to refine the system before final approval.

Stage 3: Engineering & Pre-Production

Our engineers and designers will then work together to develop the final design and drawings for your metal finishing system. Once we have your approval, the raw materials will be ordered and delivered directly to your site.

Stage 4: Installation & Training

In the final step of our process, our team will work onsite to manage the installation of your system, ensuring all components are compliant and operational. They will also provide in-depth training for your operators to get the system up and running faster.
