The most common operations listed below can be performed on our turning machines during the same cycle as machining of automotive parts:
To achieve certain technical specificities, other operations and/or treatments may be performed as a secondary operation:
- tempering and hardening
- polishing or chemical polishing
- sand-/ micro-blasting
- galvanic treatments: nickel plating, tin plating
We are experts in polishing and "frosting". For this latter process, which is exclusive to Polydec, we have developed our own in-house automatic finishing machines. Other operations are carried out by local certified partners.

Exigence du zéro défaut (0 ppm)
In the automotive industry, the 0 ppm target (zero defects parts per million) is an essential criterion for mass production of turned workpieces.
At Polydec, we have invested in developing our own automatic systems, giving us full control of our production. These automatic machines use image analysis or mechanical probing to take measurements.
We produce our automotive turned workpieces by streamlining each operation and by cutting costs in the supply chain. Our manufacturing process is fully controlled thanks to the application of quality control tools specific to the IATF 16949 standard:
- analysis of customer requirements and needs
- feasibility study before the manufacturing process begins (APQP, FMECA, Cmk, Cpk, MSA, etc.)
- validation of initial samples with a type approval document (PPAP) bringing together all the quality documentation
- series production controlled using statistical tools (SPC, control plans, etc.)
- any complaints handled using the 8D method
Our daily work has been influenced by this approach to such an extent that it has become an integral part of our corporate culture.
