PROCESS CONTROL AND SOLUTION ANALYSIS
We have a very modern in-house laboratory for process control, which gives our technical/plating staff all the necessary tools and equipment to maintain our processes at their optimum.
We undertake around 40 titrations for plating solution analysis and numerous patrol titrations for maintaining our electroless nickels and passivate solutions.
As we use trichloroethylene for degreasing we are able to undertake acid acceptance testing to ensure correct levels of inhibitors.
We have available Hull-Cell testing which means we can monitor brightener levels and current distribution for the whole range of our electrolytes.
We use a torsion balance for surface and interfacial tension measurements for our chromium solution which is now a part of our health and safety requirements.
We are continually monitoring the supply market for new developments and have recently put into place solutions that meet the RoHS and WEEE Directives.
