Secondary Services

At Buell Automatics Inc, you can choose from our range of secondary services to improve the consistency and quality of your end product.

Our services include the following:

Heat Treating

Heat treating is treaHeat treating servicesting a metal product to enhance its durability. It makes the product tougher, improving its longevity and making it more impact-resistant. The overall goal is to harden the metal for better wear resistance.

Benefits of heat treating:

  • Change magnetic permeability
  • Add resilience to the product
  • Remove stress from metal material

Barrel/Rack Plating

Barrel plating is an electroplating method for simultaneously plating high-volume smaller metal objects, parts, and components. The process uses a barrel-shaped cage where the parts are placed before the chemical bath.

On the other hand, rack plating is done for brittle and large complex parts that are difficult to plate with different techniques. The material is mounted on a fixture, which will then be immersed in a chemical bath

Differences between barrel and rack plating:

  • Barrel plating is not as labor-intensive as rack plating.
  • Rack plating is more expensive with more labor requirements.
  • Rack plating can efficiently plate complex shapes.
  • Barrel plating requires a low electrical current, which increases the exposure of parts to the plating solution.


We also provide etching services, a printing method using acid to make prints on metal products. It’s also used to create logos and intricate designs, enhancing the product’s aesthetic components while enhancing identification. Etching also offers a permanent finish that will not fade over time, making it an excellent option for demanding industrial applications.

Benefits of etching:

  • Complexity without the added cost
  • Flexibility in material
  • Burr and stress-free
  • Low-cost repeatability for large production runs


We also have grinding services, a machining process where a grinder or a grinding wheel is used to remove material from a product or workpiece. It’s mainly used to finish the material and improve its surface quality. At the same time, it can effectively enhance its shape and dimension.

Benefits of grinding:

  • Achieve a high surface finish
  • Ideal for hard materials
  • Works in high temperatures
  • Guarantees the highest degree of precision at the end-stage of the product
