Electroless vs. Electroplating?


Which process provides for the flattest surface area on outside edges and inside corners? Which process provides for the best controlled mil thickness?

We manufacture small, 2" x 2", copper components that are then nickel plated. Our plater uses a bath immersion process. What is the best process for finishing a given surface of nickel plating to attain a flatter surface?

Electroless, Art. No qualifiers needed.

What exactly is the qualifier for the electroless plating?

By 'qualifiers' I did not mean chemicals, Lau. Sorry for the confusion! I meant 'ifs-ands-or-buts'
