Find out about the processing options for front panels that are in principle finished.

Subsequent anodizing

The surfaces additionally created by machining – such as the cylindrical surface of a drilled hole – on the front panels we manufacture are "bright", i.e. the anodization existing on the front and reverse sides (where applicable) is missing.

For the cases in which subsequent anodizing of the bright surfaces is required, we offer an appropriate service. Please ask for details of the additional costs, amended delivery times and possible limitations to the finishing quality for your specific project.

Note: Subsequent anodizing of colorless or black panels generally produces satisfactory results. For other colors, losses in quality may result, which we can explain to you further when discussing your project.

It is possible to anodize cast aluminum panels. Please contact us to discuss the possible designs, the related surcharges and the effects on the delivery time. Please note that the anodizing process may involve dimensional changes or must be controlled accordingly in order to comply with particular dimensions.

Grinding outer edges

You have the option of having the outer edges of your front panel ground, whereby a) the finish is matt (similar to natural anodized) and b) all tool marks are removed.
