Vendor Managed Inventory

Valence can partner with you to manage your entire outside processing spend, including inventory management and the ability to drop ship parts directly to your customer. We can work to manage your spend with us, or even other metal finishing suppliers.

Masking

Masking is the process of covering holes and surfaces before finishing so that the treatment only affects a designated area. Valence employees have extensive experience with complex masking using various materials such as tape, glue etc.

Clean & Etch

Titanium part manufacturing results in a surface that cannot bond, and does not accept bonding primers. An alkaline peroxide etching process, also known as clean and etch, leaves a surface texture well suited to adhesive bonding and the application of bonding primers.

Stress Relief Baking

Stress relief baking minimizes stresses caused by the machining and cutting of a part during manufacture. This reduces the likelihood of unwanted dimension changes in parts that often require tight tolerances. 

Valence performs all of these services to the highest degree of care, with approvals for most prime and military specifications. Don’t see what you need on one of these pages? Let us know, and we’ll work a custom solution for you.
