Hydro Dipp’N & Powder Coating
HydroGraphics, also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, hydro dipping, watermarbling or cubic printing.
This is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic, glass, hard woods, and various other materials.
You have seen water transfer printing in action many times in everyday life. The wood grain dashboard of a BMW for example.
This is water transfer printing on a production line, turning plastic into rich mahogany in an instant. Well we take these principles and apply them to your everyday items to make them really smart!
If you can Strip it we can dip it……. AND Coat it.

Why and What is Powder Coating?
A powder coat is different to the common way to spray paint a surface when working with vehicles.
Spray paint consists out of coloring agents, carriers, polymers and some solvents if not waterbased.
This requires the liquid paint to be sprayed over a surface, and left to cure. Sometimes under a heat source. Powder coating is often done to paint wheels, given the strength by powder coating.
It is also easier to cover small holes and tight corners to create a more evenly covered finish.
Powder coating also has certain downsides which makes it not very suitable for painted entire body panels. How powder coating is done Powder coating consists out of a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer with a coloring agent, this powder is given an electric charge while spraying.
The object is given a negative charge, causing the powder coat to be attracted to the surface. After the object is covered, it is put inside an oven where an indirect heatsource causes the ceramic powder to melt and fuse together, bonding with the surface underneath.
After cooling it turns into a very hard surface, covering the object. Benefits of powder coat Apart from a different way of application, it has certain benefits that make it very suitable for specific goals.
Powdercoats are very hard, harder then regular automotive paint Powder coats can withstand various amounts of acidic and alkaline liquids It is easier to evenly cover an uneven surface, or and object with small crevices and sharp lines Powdercoats don’t require a transparent clear coat Oxidation and corrosion is much less an issue with powder coat.
Powdercoating doesn’t contain any solvents (making it VOC compliant) Powder coatings are generally thicker then normal paint Many different paint effect (like chromatic, fluorescent etc) are much easier to achieve then with regular paint
CNC Milling and Precision Machining
A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled cutting machine related to the hand-held router used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminium, steel, plastics, and foams. CNC routers can perform the tasks of many carpentry shop machines such as the panel saw, the spindle moulder, and the boring machine. They can also cut mortises and tenons.
A CNC router is very similar in concept to a CNC milling machine. Instead of routing by hand, tool paths are controlled via computer numerical control. The CNC router is one of many kinds of tools that have CNC variants.
A CNC router typically produces consistent and high-quality work and improves factory productivity. Unlike a jig router, the CNC router can produce a one-off as effectively as repeated identical production. Automation and precision are the key benefits of CNC router tables.

Plasma & Laser Engraving / Cutting
Plasma cutting: is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma.
Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, Stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper, although other conductive metals may be cut as well.
Plasma cutting is often used in fabrication shops, automotive repair and restoration, industrial construction, and salvage and scrapping operations.
Due to the high speed and precision cuts combined with low cost, plasma cutting sees widespread use from large-scale industrial CNC applications down to small hobbyist shops.
Laser cutting: is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials.
