Sending parts out for hot oxide finishing can be costly and bothersome, creating gaps in ISO and JIT programs. Today’s in-house blackening is convenient, fast and safe. In house cold blackening systems restore your control over part finishing and often pay for themselves in 3-9 months. There is no drain pollution or safety problems. Systems are available for all iron and non-stainless steels. Pre-engineered finishing systems supplied complete start with the BK-TT mini TruTemp or BK-1 Mini Presto® Black 5 gallon line for tool room scale or limited production scale blackening. The BC-20 tank system has large production line features without space and cost requirements. The 40 gallon BC-40 tank line utilizes eight heavy duty welded tanks. The 100 gallon BC-100 tank line utilizes 100 gallon heavy duty welded tanks.

Phosphate coating

The Microlok MZN Finish Provides Protection up to 1400°F

CNC Tru-Temp system

Shop Saves Time, Money By Moving Part Finishing In-House
Today’s highly automated machining centers deliver completed parts faster than ever. However, once a part is machined, if the next step requires finishing, time gained on the machining end can be lost on the finishing end. This has changed for motion control component manufacturer Zero-Max Inc.
