Technical expertise

Our finishing workshop

In our dedicated workshop, we use a variety of finishing technologies for your mock-ups and production parts.

To enable you to see the finished version of your product, we offer various finishes depending on the process and the material used. Our full expertise is given to finishing your parts in our dedicated workshop using qualified painting technicians, high-end products and a colour mixing machine.


  • Visible parts for marketing presentations.
  • Mechanically stronger parts.
  • Electromagnetic shielding.
  • Production parts.
Custom parts

Paint and surface appearance

We offer a wide range of paint systems to meet all your needs. You can customise the colour and surface appearance from our range of options available.

Our wide range of paint systems means you can have parts in the colour of your choice.

  • We also propose metallic paints as well as all car and motorcycle bodywork colours.
  • Special-effect paints can be produced on request.

We can offer a variety of surface finishes :

  • Satin, matt, smooth, fine grain, medium grain, soft varnish, etc.
  • Gloss polished: nickel, brushed nickel for a stainless steel appearance, copper.
  • Matt: artistic or technical copper, nickel or technical black nickel.

Sealing or impregnation coatings

Rough 3D printed parts are not completely airtight or watertight as in reality they contain tiny pores that are invisible to the naked eye.

To seal them against fluid ingress or high pressure, the application of a sealant coating or an impregnation is recommended. Once treated, the printed parts are totally hermetically sealed and resist high pressures and aggressive fluids such as fuels or solvents.

Mechanical finishing

Vibratory finishing

Vibratory finishing is a highly efficient mechanical surface finishing process used to improve the aesthetic quality and strength of 3D printed parts.

Vibratory finishing is often used as an alternative to manual finishing for 3D printed parts, as it produces smoother and more uniform surfaces in a shorter time.

It can also be used to improve resistance to fatigue and to corrosion on 3D printed parts by eliminating micro-fissures and stress points.

Electrolysis surface treatment

Metal coating

Metal coating is a process that consists in coating a part with a thin layer of metal.

Metal coating is often used to improve the physical and aesthetic properties of parts by creating a gloss metal finish and rendering them resistant to corrosion.

3D printed parts may exhibit a rough or granular appearance.
Metal coating produces a smooth, gloss finish that can be useful in aesthetic applications to produce a metal appearance on a plastic part, or to improve the mechanical properties of the part (impact resistance, temperature withstand, protection against abrasion, improved de-moulding, improved surface finish, etc.).

Parts marking

We are proud to propose a vast array of options to customise your parts and showcase your brand or the specific aspects of your product.
  • Laser marking, which creates a permanent, precise engraving on the part surface.
  • Pad printing, which enables high-quality printing on curved or uneven surfaces.
  • Dry transfer, which enables photo-quality printing on a wide range of materials to integrate your logo or technical information..
  • Lastly, screen printing, which is ideal for projects requiring high wear resistance..
