Session 5: Advancements in Metal Finishing Technical Improvements

Abstract Number:

51

Plating applicators will gain a better understanding on what ‎practices and parameters to focus on for ‎maintaining and ‎controlling the acid nickel plating operation.‎

Topics:

Innovative Best Practices for Performance & Efficiency
Zinc/Alloys/High Performance & Passivation Systems ‎

Since the development of the acid zinc nickel process, the ‎knowledge gained from technical support activities in the field has ‎reinforced the importance of implementing best practices for ‎optimizing the various parameters present in barrel or rack ‎applications. Foregoing these practices for controlling and ‎maintaining the process will have a negative impact on the costs ‎of operation and yield inconsistent product from the plating line. ‎Some case studies will be presented to give a more thorough ‎understanding of how integrating these practices will result in ‎decreasing excessive chemical consumption, part ‎nonconformities, and other related inefficiencies in the overall ‎production process.‎
