Industry Plating Methods

Electroplating or electrodeposition is a process that uses electrical current to deposit a very thin metal coating, measured in the millionths [micro inch] of an inch, on the surface of an object. The process imparts a specific property to the object, that if left un-plated it would not have. For example, nickel plating improves corrosion resistance; conductivity is imparted to an object by plating with silver and an aesthetic quality is achieved by plating with gold.

Rack and Barrel methods are the two standard electroplating techniques employed at Electrum.

Rack plating:
in this method the parts to be plated are fixed with a wire and positioned on a metal rack. The electricity is conducted along the wire to the part and coated in the appropriate metal. The object can be plated entirely or on selected areas by masking areas where plating is not needed. This method can plate a variety of different part sizes and shapes.

Barrel plating: is a type of mass finishing that takes place in a barrel or tub and is commonly used for smaller durable parts. Current is supplied to the parts by means of fingers or tangler in the barrel. Plating uniformity is maintained by constantly turning the barrel. We employ various barrel sizes from 100 grams up to 30 kilograms to accommodate different part sizes.

By investing in our people and equipment Electrum guarantees satisfaction in delivering our complete line of electroplating services.
