"Nickel plating of molds"



 

I am looking for a process to nickel plate small aluminum or stainless steel parts to a thickness of app. .030 dia.after plating, will machine the part to a smaller dia. then remove the core forming a mold to be used to for various plastic part tips. This process is used to form catheter tips, etc.inside dia. typically .050-.080.

This is called "electroforming" because the deposited metal actually constitutes the metal object rather than being a plating on top of it. This is usually done from a nickel sulphamate plating bath. But, like anything else, experience counts, so you might contact a shop like NiCoForm [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] who have significant experience in this.
