IN EXISTING POCESS, IF PARTS ARE TUCHED TO ANOTHER,THEN THERE IS NO PLATING ON THAT AREA. IS THERE ANY METHOD OF ELECTRO PLATING WHERE HIGH VOLUME PLATING CAN BE DONE?UDAY PATIL

Barrel plating is successfully done on a full range of part geometry and base metal. Please send information on your physical plant, racks, barrels, rectifiers, composition of plating solution, cleaners, acids, processing information so we can have something to mull over. Also, shape and weight of parts, and composition of the parts.

Your parts will be ideally suited to barrel plating. However, there is also another option, that of the Vi-barrel. This is an open topped drum that vibrates both radially and vertically. It is well suited to small components and is very effective at stopping them agglomerating.

Hello Mr Patil,
The part cannot be designed for plating, but the plating process has to be designed to plate the part.
There are methods to overcome this problem.
We will be able to plate this part for you.
