Explore Encapsulated Plating

Discover how custom tooling and encapsulated flow plating can plate components with deep circulator geometries.

Worldwide, industrial firms are under pressure. Globalization, competition and changing business models, as well as regulatory and cost pressures, mean that organizations must improve their processes, save costs, and maximize the service life of each product. To achieve this, investment will be made in tools and equipment that are proven to reduce component failure and avoid downtime.

Manufacturers must improve their processes, save costs and maximize the service life of each product. To achieve this, organizations must invest in tools and equipment that are proven to reduce component failure and avoid downtime. At the same time, there is an increased need for repeatability, maximizing efficiency by reducing component failure and rework.

This is where SIFCO ASC’s new electroplating technique, Encapsulated plating, comes in. Essentially a hybrid of tank plating and selective plating. The nature of the process means that it can be used to plate parts with areas difficult to reach (such as non-line of sight) – including recessed areas, sharp corners or deep circulator geometries such as pipes or couplings.
