Quickparts®, a 3D Systems company (NASDAQ: TDSC), released additional secondary finishing capabilities through QuickCutCNC™. This new rapid CNC machining service, launched by custom manufacturing leader Quickparts®, is now providing anodizing and electroless nickel plating as an option for parts CNC machined from either Aluminum 6061 or 7075.
These finishes are post machining processes that enhance the durability and strength of aluminum by adding an exterior coating to the final parts. Electroless nickel plating protects against corrosion, improves wear and the ability to solder, and increases hardness. Anodizing increases hardness and corrosion/abrasion resistance, and electrically insulates the part. You can also dye the anodized parts a variety of colors. QuickCutCNC™ is currently offering the following colors for anodizing: Red, Gold, Green, Blue, Black, and Clear (Light Silver).
