Extraordinary growth potential lies ahead for machined component manufacturers. Analysts predict the U.S. market will expand by 12% from 2021 to 2026.* But keeping pace with the higher demand is difficult when dealing with strict tolerances, complex shapes, and surface roughness issues.
Looking for the right solution, executed on time and to the highest standard? Bales fuses science and craftsmanship to deliver exceptional results for machined component manufacturers worldwide.
We've been protecting metal surfaces in ways others don't dare since 1978. From shafts to housings, your machined components will benefit from our incomparable finishes, tight tolerances, and legacy of integrity and innovation.
Machined components are susceptible to corrosion and wear. Boost your components with Bales’ Electroless Nickel, Hard Chrome, and proprietary NIBORE™ coatings, ideal for protecting against corrosion and achieving excellent abrasion resistance.
Bales’ exceptionally thin Electroless Nickel coating protects against corrosion and abrasion.
There’s a lot to love about Bales’ proprietary NIBORE™ coating. It offers superior lubricity and release, excellent abrasion resistance, plus uniform plating.
Thanks to superior abrasion resistance, Hard Chrome is a reliable and durable coating for machined component applications. It’s also non-magnetic and mimics the finish of base materials.
