Metal processing: surface processing improves sheet metal performance

Discover the advances surface processing grants sheet metal products and request an estimate from a company specialised in sheet metal processing to obtain complex and assembled products.

Surface processing allows metals to acquire mechanical-physical characteristics able to make products more resistant with higher performance. For this reason, in sheet metal processing, metal processing is essential, especially when complex and assembled products must be created, ready to market. Metal processing, in fact, increases sheet metal performance in terms of:


Surface processing delay the metal oxidation process, thus prolonging the duration of the single products and hindering rust formation. Surface processing thus become essential for all those products that will be in contact with the elements, such as car components, or products subject to stress from water or other liquids, such as kitchen robots.


Thanks to metal processing, single sheet metal products also acquire greater surface hardness and thus become more resistant, also from the mechanical stress standpoint, a fundamental aspect when dealing with electromechanical or home appliance components.

Subsequent processing

Processes such as phosphate-coating or nickel-plating make the sheet metal surface more homogeneous and suited for subsequent processes. Subsequent paint applications are thus promoted through these processes and the colours are more even and glossy.


Burnishing, anodising, polishing, painting, etc., are surface processes that allow the sheet metal to obtain a more attractive aspect, in line with the end product design. Whether dealing with components for the medical, vending, home appliance or car sectors, metal processing becomes almost mandatory to make products more attractive and be successful on the market.
