Cost Calculation for plating operation

(2000)

Our client is an electroplater that will install a line to do "silver electroplating" and we are helping him to find the costs involved. It will be a new operation and we need to find the plating time per piece and the bath's size. I found a good deal of information at The Technical University of Denmark's web site but I am having trouble understanding the way to calculate the time per piece. Apparently it involves the use of fixed bath's sizes. I need an expert's help with this problem and any other advise that he/she can provide.

There are manual calculations by which you can get the answers you need (one of the equations involves Faraday's law). There is also software. Either way, you need to think seriously about paying an equipment manufacturer or a consultant to help you get GOOD answers.

You may order a publication by Metal Finishing "Good Days and Bad Days", Part IV, Cost and pricing, by Milton Weiner. It is very useful and costs only about $10.
