At Contour, we’re used to produce parts with strict surface requirements. We, for instance, produce stainless steel weld assemblies with an applied grinding and surface finish direction. These components often define the aesthetic looks for our customer’s final product. There can also be technical requirements which require a special surface finish. An example is an assembly made from nickel plated aluminium with a material thickness of 1 mm.
Our machines are configured and properly maintained, to reduce scratches induced by tooling as much as possible. Our punch laser combo is, for instance, equipped with a brush bed and an active lower mold. The lower mold vertically moves away from the material between individual punches while the product is positioned. This reduces scratching as much as possible.
