More companies are relying on the consistency and traceability that automated processes provide, so why would selective electroplating be any different? Selective plating is a method of electroplating localized areas without the use of an immersion tank. Automated equipment has recently been developed for some very challenging applications. Fully customized machines can be designed for repair or OEM applications to apply engineered deposits without the need for operator intervention, changing the perceived notion of a once highly manual operation. This presentation highlights the key benefits of automating the selective plating process.
