Selective Plating: the best kept aerospace secret
SIFCO Process® selective plating. Precision and portability as standard.
By highlighting the performance and extreme portability of the aerospace approved SIFCO Process®, this white paper makes the case for the wider use of selective plating – both for salvage and repair as well as many OEM applications. Using case studies and comparisons with other plating technologies, the paper clearly demonstrates the advantages of the SIFCO Process®, most notably the quality of its mechanical properties, the low cost of capital investment, its viability as an alternative to cadmium, and its ease and speed of use - including its on-site deployment in hangars and in the field. The white paper also explains how the SIFCO Process® can be automated to deliver cost and productivity improvements across the manufacturing process.
SIFCO ASC - Cadmium Kit
SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts introduces a new highly portable cadmium travel kit for LHE® touchup applications. The kit,specifically designed for the aerospace industry, is ideal for AOG operations where repair times are critical. This kit features the maximum amount of cadmium solutions allowed for shipment via commercial and private ground carriers.When an aircraft is grounded for critical repairs, revenue is at risk. The touchup kit was designed for situations where time is of the essence. The SIFCO ASC kit contains everything a trained technician needs to quickly make repairs and get aircraft back into service.
