This area at Rieger deals with the preparation of materials. Mechanical preparation primarily means polishing, grinding and brushing in our in-house polishing workshop. These processes remove holes and so-called bumps on the still unprocessed surface of the workpieces. The advantage is a more uniform and smoother surface after or for the different surface treatments, such as chrome or nickel. Mechanical preparation can also be used as an intermediate step. This is often the case when the workpieces are of a very decorative nature. For example, the material is polished again after the copper in chrome plating to achieve a smooth, uniform surface.
At Rieger, customers have the advantage of getting preparatory work and surface finishing from a single source. This saves time and money and simplifies the process for our customers.
