Mechanical Polishing

OMC offers Grinding, Polishing and Buffing services in our workshops in Limerick and we can also provide trained polishers to carry out polishing on vessels and pipe work on sites.

These processes improve the surface conditions of a product for decorative or functional purposes. The various techniques are abrading operations although some plastic working of the surfaces may occur, particularly during buffing.

The stages in this process include:

  1. Grinding
  2. Polishing
  3. Buffing

The stages in the process follow the order in which they do for the reasoning that Grinding permits a far more aggressive a brading action compared to Polishing. The same applies to Polishing being a more aggressive brading action compared to Buffing.

These services require highly skilled workers with many years of experience and a thorough knowledge of the art of their craft. OMC Technologies provide their staff with the necessary training needed on an on-going basis.
