Matting and structuring

of metal and plastic parts

Perfect surfaces for
appearance and functionality

You can change the surface structure of your workpieces in a targeted manner by means of post-treatment at Dörfler&Schmidt. Whether you need a satin gloss for optical requirements or a specific structure for technical components, we can process your components according to your requirements.


Matting / satin finishing for optical applications: Matted, satin-finished surfaces with a satin gloss appear to be of particularly high quality. Different optics can be achieved by using different blasting and grinding media.


Structuring for technical applications: Certain work parts require a certain surface structure for optimum technical function, for example rolling elements (for ball bearings, etc.). Structured surfaces provide ideal tribological properties with less wear.

The right process for your workpiece

For the matting or structuring of surfaces, the appropriate manufacturing process for the workpiece is required. From our large machine park, we can select the process best suited to your requirements.


Blasting: We blast (via compressed air) with glass beads, corundum, ceramics, steel and sand (ugs. sandblasting) – depending on your requirements.

Mass finishing: Mass finishing (Vibratory finishing, Barrel finishing, disk finishing or drag finishing) can be used to produce matt surfaces with chaotic grinding patterns.


Brushing: Brushing can be used to produce matt surfaces with an ordered surface structure. Learn more about the individual processes on our pages.
