Hi, Tariq. It isn't clear what kind of pits you are speaking of or at what step they originated. Get back to us.

pittings are hard and small dots , they appear after brass and become more prominent after antique finish.

Hi, Tariq. It surprises me that these "dots" are not present after copper plating, but only after brass plating. But if that is indeed the case, it seems that they are particles that are not being filtered out. Is there a filter on the brass plating tank? Do you use anode bags on the anode baskets? Is this cyanide brass plating?

The quality of replies normally is directly related to the amount and quality of the information provided. You have said zero.zero about solutions, times, amperage, and temperatures.
If those do not make a difference to you, you will probably have to live with problems.

yes this is cyanide brass plating, filter is present in brass plating bath but we don't use anode bags.
