designs and manufactures custom electroplating fixtures, primarily
for hard chrome plating and nickel
sulfamate plating. We also provide on-site services, including set-up
and training. Our market focus includes the aerospace and automotive
industries and the defense departments depot activities.

Hard Chrome Plating
approach to hard chrome plating fixtures includes:
design. Eliminates the need to mask parts.
anodes. Allows for maximum plating rates, reduced
cycle times, and uniform deposits.
and easy set-up. Reduces labor costs and operator training requirements.
centering. Allows for close anode to cathode spacing and results
in faster plating rates and more uniform coatings.
surfaces plating. Allows for simultaneous plating of eight or more
different surfaces on landing gear or similar part.
connectivity/conductance. We have devised an approach that provides
a highly conductive copper connection below the solution level, without
the possibility of bath contamination.
encasement. Protection of anode from bending/breakage. Avoids worker
exposure to lead-chromate film.
air exhaust obstructions. Streamlined design that avoids above solution
instructions. Fully illustrated step-by step instructions for fixturing
- Service. On
and off-site service, training and repair provided.
Nickel and Cadmium Plating
and cadmium electroplating fixtures and associated support tooling
consist of variations of conforming and
anode systems. This tooling is custom designed for each application
utilizing pure nickel, cadmium, steel, stainless steels, platinum and
platinized titanium anode materials.
