Metal surface treatment

Stansomatic offers surface treatment and partial plating for your stamped metal parts. We can coat your metal parts after production in our in-house surface treatment department or through approved external partners. We do reel-to-reel plating, strip plating, spot plating, bulk plating and vibration plating.

Documentation and traceability

All metals such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, iron, copper, brass, nickel silver, and tin bronze can be plated – quality is delivered according to industry standards and specific customer requirements. Our quality management system contains every piece of document which we can use to track each process meaning that we can document a product’s lifecycle from design to production to delivery.

Choosing the right surface finish for your metal parts

All untreated metal surfaces risk corrosion when exposed to oxygen or water – shortening their lifespan. Surface treatment prolongs a product’s lifespan and reduces rusting, corrosion and mechanical wear.

We offer different plating methods such as anodizing, electro galvanization, hot-dip galvanizing, chrome plating, nickel plating, silver plating, tin plating, nitrocarburizing, electroless nickel plating and many others.

As a committed partner, Stansomatic works closely with you as a customer and is always ready to advise on the right surface treatment. It depends on where the product is used and what is it exposed to. The wrong surface treatment reduces the product’s quality and reduces its lifespan. We have the expertise to help you choose the right surface finish. If your workpiece needs surface treatment, we can assist you.

Anodizing aluminum

Anodizing aluminum improves corrosion resistance, reduces wear and creates an electrically insulating surface. Untreated aluminum tends to become glossless over time while anodized aluminum has a longer lifespan. During this treatment, we can also color the metal any color you want.

Partial plating

All common metals can be selectively plated. This can be done in multiple steps. First, we partially stamp the parts, surface treat them and finally, finish the rest of the stamping process. We do this for parts that need partial gold plating or similar plating options


Galvanization is one of the most common surface treatment methods that protect against rust and corrosion. Galvanization can be split into multiple plating methods such as electro galvanization and hot-dip galvanization which is the most effective form of corrosion protection.

Metal stamping

Tight tolerance metal stamping

When you need fast production, less scrap material, quicker setup, high repeatability and tight tolerances, precision metal stamping is the way to go. For more than 50 years, we have delivered stamping parts to customers in the medical, electronics, automotive and energy industries.

Surface plating

Reel-to-reel partial plating or reel-to-reel surface plating

Does the entire surface need plating or does only a section of the surface need plating? We can handle it all. Reel-to-reel partial plating results in an ultra-precise finish of each workpiece and is primarily used for technical and functional reasons – it does allow savings on precious metals.

As your single-source partner, we can advise on surface treatment as early as in the design and development phase. If you involve us in the development phase, we are sure to develop and produce robust and cost-efficient products
