Qualified CNC machinists operating the most modern CNC lathes and milling machines, certified and skilled aluminum welders all guarantee an efficient and modern manufacturing process. GFM products are surfaced hardened, in a patented procedure (Hart-Coat ®) which gives a hard, scratch proof finish protecting and prolonging the life span of each piece of equipment.
