Metal Finishing for the Military & Defence Industry

It goes without saying that the operating environment for the military is extremely demanding. When equipment failure can be a matter of life and death, each step of the manufacturing process has to be tightly controlled. The process of metal finishing involves applying a coating or treatment to parts to enhance their performance in challenging environments. In the context of the defence sector, metal finishing is essential for ensuring the reliability and longevity of equipment and machinery used in critical operations.
