Prototype Sheet Metal Parts Post Processing & Finishing / /
Fathom’s comprehensive manufacturing program allows our customers to produce everything in-house from prototype to post processing and finishing. Welding, hardware installation, painting and more can all be achieved. Additional services not offered by Fathom can be outsourced to one of our strategic partners to ensure your part will be made quickly while maintaining a high level of quality.
During welding heat and pressure are used to fuse two or more parts together. Welding services include arc welding, metal inert gas (MIG), tungsten inert gas (TIG), resistance spot welding, laser welding and oxyfuel welding and cutting.
Fathom’s complete sheet metal fabrication program includes hardware installation services. Whether a project a low or high volume of parts, Fathom can ensure great quality and efficiency.
Fathom’s services include sanding and grinding services. Grinding adds any desired cosmetic surface and can also remove weld. Sanding deburrs and removes scratches from parts after they have been punched or laser cut.
Liquid painting is suitable for projects where powder coating cannot be used. Liquid painting results in a professional finish, corrosion resistance, custom colors and more.
During powder coating, the sheet metal part is covered with an even coating of powder and then cured. After curing, the workpiece has a professional finish that can be matte, smooth, textured and more. Fathom has a variety of different powder coating finishes to choose from.
Screen printing can be used to add a variety of different finishes and colors to sheet metal parts. Fathom can also add a design of your choice to your custom part.
