We deliver premium straightline finishing with methods that include stroke sanding and timesaving of various metals for aesthetic requirements in many industries.
Looks and Quality that Make The Difference
Depending on your specifications, we can finish your products with low grit sanding to remove imperfections up to high grit to produce a near-polished finish.
Common Materials We Finish with Straightlining
- Stainless steel
- Bronze or brass alloys
- Sheets and plates
- 3-dimensional products
The metal finishing process is sometimes referred to as straight-line, stroke sanded, brushed, grained, or #4 finish.
The Work Behind Quality
Our onsite engineers and technicians maintain our timesaver sanders and straightlining machines to meet our stringent requirements. Perfect calibration delivers optimal performance and quality results.
Arrow Cryogenics uses timesaver sanding and straightlining to produce straight lines in stainless steel and other metal materials and create a flawless, uniform finish – and – to improve part flatness and increase the adhesion surface of a part or component.
The industries that most benefit from timesaver sanding and straightlining are:
- Medical devices
- Food service equipment
Timesaver sanding and straightlining finishes stainless steel and other metal material parts efficiently and cost effectively to create a flawless and uniform finish.
