Compucraft’s processing department allows us to have complete control of the final steps in the manufacturing of product. All our equipment is regularly tested and calibrated to ensure optimum performance. Our processes are Nadcap accredited.
Nadcap accredited Penetrant Inspection conforms to customer and industry specifications. Our responsible Level III and two Level II inspectors ensure all parts are inspected to applicable requirements.
Abrasive blasting is used to strip away imperfections and other contaminants from the surface. It cleans the substrate and is used as part of the preparation for coating material.
We utilize three blast chambers. The media used varies depending on material being blasted. (Aluminum, Steel, Titanium, etc.)
Passivation is a chemical cleaning process that removes free iron and other contaminants from Stainless Steel and Nickel alloys. Removal of contaminants allows the material to perform as engineered.
We Passivate to AMS 2700 as well as other industry and customer specifications.
Chem Film is the process of protecting aluminum from corrosion, while also serving as a base for the application or primer. It does not change any dimensions on products. It can be applied by dipping, spraying, or brushing. The most common method used at Compucraft is dipping.
We Chem Film to MIL-DTL-5541 Type I, CL 1A and CL 3 as well as other industry and customer specifications. (CL 1A provides the best corrosion protection, while CL 3 is electrically conductive)
PRIME & PAINT
The final step for many parts is primer and topcoat. We employee two painters who use a large paint booth and two drying ovens. We use industry standard primers and paints as well as customer specific ones.
