Reel to reel plating
Reel to reel plating is ideal for the continuous plating of high volumes of metal strip loaded to a spool, presented either as a plain strip or with pressed components.
The machines can operate up to 20 metres per minute according to plating specification, and where the machine configuration has palletised reel feeders available, multiple layer reels with up to 500,000 parts per layer can be processed.
Various selective plating techniques can be applied to effect economical coating of precious metals thanks to the range of advanced plating technology machines installed.
Barrel plating is available for processing batches of loose part metal or semi conductor components with an 'all over' plating coat to the metal areas, subject to limitations of component design. Batch quantity is variable to component size.
Flexible circuit processing
Flexible circuit processing enables sheets of film containing flexible circuits to be fed and reeled as a continuous roll of up to 600mm wide through the process baths, rather than as single sheets transferred from bath to bath.
