Rack Plating

Rack plating is ideal for delicate or complex parts. Parts are hung on a unique rack developed exclusively for that product. The rack is then submersed in a nickel plating solution.  Because the part is locked into place, the contact point will remain under plated.  To offset this limitation, ADV Plating designs racks and pins to have the smallest contact point possible and has created several proprietary mechanical and pneumatic controls.

Rack plating is labor intensive and therefore more costly than barrel plating.





Barrel Plating

Barrel plating is an efficient and relatively low cost method of plating. Parts are placed inside a barrel that slowly rotates while it is submersed in a nickel plating solution.  This plating method is recommended for high volumes of parts to ensure uniform coverage. However, some parts may be too delicate or fragile to be barrel plated.
