This is our method for processing all parts that cannot be poured or dropped due to their geometries. The parts to be plated are placed on racks individually and then plated according to specifications.
Parts with a simple design are placed on standard racks. For items with complex parts geometries, IMO can quickly build custom-fit racks if required.
Rack technique is used if the parts to be plated are not suitable for methods that involve pouring or dropping, such as barrel technique or vibrobot technique. This can be due to the weight of the parts or their mechanical sensitivity. Rack technique is also the method of choice if a very high surface quality is required. We use rack technique for larger parts manufactured by machining, punching and bending as well as circuit boards. Rack technique allows us to handle the part geometry in a highly individual manner. Therefore, it is also our recommended method for the plating of highly sensitive parts used in high-frequency and medical engineering as well as in e-mobility.
