Meeting Productivity Demand through Automation of Selective Plating

Reducing ergonomic risks. Increasing usable capacity. Whatever your reason, if you’re looking to learn more about how to automate your plating operation, you can’t miss this presentation at SURFIN 2018.

The advancements in automated selective plating incorporate options for total customization to the customer’s specific application. To illustrate this, data, video and pictures of a vertical, dual- spindled automated ID plating machine will be presented. By working with the customer, custom plating machines can be developed to reduce operator set-up time, part handling, and even number of applications – effectively achieving betting lead times and meeting production schedules.

Join us at 8:30am on Wednesday, June 6 at the NASF SUR/FIN 2018 Expo where Derek Kilgore will demonstrate how attendees can achieve consistent quality and process repeatability by incorporating automated selective plating into their process.

Derek is the Mechanical Design and Project Engineer for SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts in Independence, OH. He is a graduate of the University of Akron, in Akron, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and has 10 years of experience in the field. Derek has worked on projects in the surface finishing, food packaging and automotive industries such as: automated selective plating systems, metal stamping, blow molding, injection molding, thermoforming, rubber manufacturing, and more.
