This is how electroplating works.
All that glitters is not gold.
We have been proving our skills in electroplating solid and stamped strips sucessfully since 1975. Today our production takes place on state-of-the-art plants developed to meet increasing customer requirements and providing. Whether solid strips or stamped strips – the challenge remains the same, that is, electroplating will always have to meet specific requirements. And capacity as well leaves nothing to be desired. Our electroplating plants boast high throughput and availability. Therefore, we are able to react flexibly to your deadline requirements.”
In total, our technology centre comprises 31 reel-to-reel plating lines with visualisation, among them several systems for spot plating. The modular structure of these plants ensures that we can meet our customer’s demand for high throughput and flexible application. In the course of the last few years we have further extended our know-how in the field of selective plating and are continuously working on new innovative processing techniques.
We plate precision parts with gold, silver, copper, and tin.
This technique requires that the strip is completely submerged in the electrolytes. A further development of this method is the selective immersion plating where the strip is partially plated during the process by means of a dipping depth control.

Depending on the product and customer requirements, various methods are applied such as the wheel or belt technique, in order to apply stripes on solid and stamped strips at the required position and quantity.
For this purpose the area to be plated of the pre-stamped strip is guided across the so-called brush cloth stretched over a tool. This patented method allows the precious metal to be applied precisely to the functional area of the strip.

Thanks to state-of-the-art spot technology contact strips can now be selectively plated requiring only minor effort. Depending on requirement and material, we choose the correct application of our spot technique family, either the micro spot technique, the macro spot technique or the so-called MPP (MicroPrecisionPlating) technique.
