Alumet uses special machines and tools to remove the top layer from profiles or sheets. By doing so, we can remove extrusion lines so that a smooth, silk-like surface remains after etching. This treatment is generally used for indoor applications with most need for a smooth surface, such as architectural lighting, kitchen and furniture profiles.

Aluminium grinding

The grinding of metals involves the following process steps: course grinding, middle-fine grinding and fine grinding. Aluminium manufacturers usually supply semi-finished products with such good surface condition that the first two processing steps can often be skipped altogether. A course grinding step is usually only required to smooth out any major damage that has occurred.
