Single and multiple stripe widths can be applied to strip product via stripe belt cells. These cells utilize both inert and soluble anode systems using both fabric backed belt or titanium belt materials. Various belt surface materials include soft and hard neoprene foam, PVC and RTV coatings. Typical stripe widths can be held to +/- .010” tolerance. Stripe cell boxes are designed for ease of operator use with all controls available on the front of the units. Stripe head systems are designed for use with gold, silver, and tin chemistries.
The spray jet cell is used in applications for selectively plating stamped reel to reel parts and as an alternative for belt stripe equipment. The spray jet cell system delivers the plating bath chemicals from the plating tank through a high flow/high pressure manifold and into a faceplate machined to the contour of the part. The faceplate serves to fixture the parts through the cell and as a medium for directing the plating to the specific area of the part. The jet cell uses technology developed through years of testing in production applications. Equipment can be setup for single or dual stripes on one side of a part or both sides.
Selective Depth Cells are used for applications where a portion of a stamped part or strip material needs to be plated up to a certain height. The material is fed into a cell that is flooded with an plating solution up to a specific height. The plating depth can be controlled by adjusting the height of the guide assemblies.
Precision Process has the tools to deposit plating deposits in defined spots on a part or strip. The ability to reduce precious metal consumption is the reason more customers are adapting this technology over standard selective depth and stripe techniques. Our proprietary spot technology can be applied by two types of methods (belt or wheel) with typical spot placement of +/- .005” on location on repeatable progression. We can provide equipment to plate one side or both sides of a part and will work with your designers to suggest the most appropriate equipment to perform the job.
Our bubbler cells are uniquely fabricated for plating internal recesses of female sockets and clips. The cell buss design allows switchover from center anode, outer anode or both when using this type of selective cell. The various available weir design arrangements in our selective bubbler cells overcome the many type of contact designs which prevent the ability to deposit adequate plating thickness inside connector sockets thus eliminating the problems.
High Speed Over-all
Many reel to reel applications require high speed overall cells which allow for faster plating rates. This translates into higher line speeds. Precision Process has designed these cells for increased production capability in single or dual strand designs. Cell accessories include adjustable end weirs, part shields, splash deflectors and high solution flow manifolds.
