Firearm Finishing Techniques Improve Both Process and Product.
To eliminate dust and embedded media in the material, firearm manufacturers are shifting from dry blasting to wet slurry abrasive blasting firearm finishing processes, like Wet Technologies’ systems. This process reaches the previously inaccessible surfaces of the slide and leaves the part fully deburred and with a uniform finish. The wet slurry abrasive blasting process eliminates a step and leaves the slide clean, smooth and polished.
Our self-contained, closed-loop, automated wet slurry systems are used to deburr edges, remove or blend machining marks, and smooth or lap the surface of newly machined components — leaving these parts with higher quality precision matte finishes, ready for assembly. Compressing the time and multiple steps these processes typically require has significantly cut production time. Plus, since our solution unquestionably produces tighter tolerance, higher quality components, the end product today is a finer one.
