Advanced selective plating techniques have been developed for the challenging application of repairing internal grooves that have experienced severe corrosion. Many groove configurations require uniform, high-thickness deposition of a plated deposit onto any, or all, of the surfaces with a minimal need for intermediate machining steps. This paper demonstrates how a combination of an engineered, wrap-less anode design along with optimized computer controlled operating parameters has led to reduced downtime, high quality and repeatable selective plating repairs.
Rich O’Brien from Bales Metal Surface Solutions says advances in coatings science have led to the development of multiple choices for surface finishes beyond hard chrome and electroless nickel.
The acquisitions of Southwest Metal Finishing/Inventix Mfg. and SourceOne propels finishing giant.
Unit can control between one and 10 rectifiers from a single, user-friendly touchscreen that can be centrally located in any facility.
This is a common challenge faced by many acid zinc platers who Mark Adams from Columbia Chemical says perform hydrogen embrittlement relief on acid zinc plated fasteners.
