Why choose Metal Planing over milling,
grinding, or other machining?
There are many Benefits to Metal Planing:
|Rough machining, releasing and reshimming in a horizontal position assures that parts are flat in a free state.||Up to a 63-micro finish can be easily held with tempered aluminum, brass and bronze. Iron, steel and stainless material may be rougher depending on alloy and condition.||Scalp lines approx. .001 to .0005 between lines can be an advantage for determining wear (visually) in surface plates. An air gap between lines allows parts resting on the surface to be easily moved.||Planing in one continuous stroke of the table leaves a straight, parallel and consistent finish.|
