WHY CHOOSE QUALITY METAL FINISHING CO.?
Our U.S. based competitors have networks where your manufactured parts make multiple stops at different locations in order to complete all of these services. NOT US!
Our award winning facility is a leading independent worldwide supplier of finished zinc die castings, machining, polishing and buffing, and decorative chrome plating.
HIGH OR LOW VOLUME?
Our modern flexible manufacturing processes allow us to supply high volume to low volume that meets our customer requirements. We work with many OEM manufacturers that demand high quality and competitive pricing. We welcome new customer inquiries from anywhere within the U.S. and abroad.
We are an integrated supplier of zinc die castings, machining, polishing and buffing, and decorative chrome plating. Therefore, we have the ability to offer more competitive pricing versus our competition that must ship your parts to multiple suppliers in multiple locations in order to provide the same end product.
Because we complete everything in-house, our turnaround time is much faster than our competition. Our lead time from engineering to first part approval is the quickest in the industry. Please contact us and let us know your requirements.
When our prospective clients visit our facility, they are extremely happy that they only need to visit our building in order to offer their full approval. Most of our competitors would force you to visit multiple locations operated by different companies where all of the processes are completed.

QMF zinc die casting quality goes well beyond the usual definitions. We start with only those materials which meet your zinc alloy specifications.
Customized tooling is designed and built to provide a top quality zinc die casting that results in the strength and metal surface finish you require.
Quality auditing throughout the entire production process includes detailed checking of zinc die castings prior to trimming plus on-going audits at all secondary operations such as drilling, tapping, and machining. We designed the process to yield the highest quality product.
Our integrated process allows us to finish and plate products within hours of producing a die casting. This is a distinct advantage when producing castings for decorative finish and one that validates the process controls utilized in die cast.

Vital to any decorative plating system is the metal finishing process. Using a unique blend of metal polishing plus hand, semi-automatic, as well as automatic metal buffing machinery developed by our engineers, our highly skilled employees produce millions of components annually.
Each finished metal piece has a signature QMF-quality part surface that is destined for beautiful results in metal plating. Special care is taken at each step, with a close examination of potential problem areas such as parting lines, concealed surfaces, and other part features. Finished parts are appropriately protected with trays or divided containers.
- Invisible parting lines
- Consistent brushing
- Smooth finish, even in hard to reach areas
