Mechanical processing techniques hit their limits with thinwalled structures (under 0,5mm). Electroplating offers a simple alternative production process for that problem.
Copper, nickel or a combination of both are eligible for this use. Applicabilities are for example waveguides, bushings, heat conductors or thin walled bushes for geology.
Galvanized molds (on core)
The processes described in the following show various techniques of galvano-forming upon cores. The field of application is diverse and extraordinary interesting in cases where conventional Methods have their scientific borders.
Below 1000°C a sufficient wetting by means of Cu/Ag-Solder doesn’t take place because of the chromic oxide layer on the surface of austenite high-grade steel. Only at higher temperatures the chromic oxide layer tears up and inside those rips the wetting takes place.
Mending of continuous casting molds
Galvano-T conducts this kind of mending for more than 10 years now and we believe to have reached a rather high process reliability.
Adherent coating of stainless steels
Stainless steels are extremely corrosion-resistant materials. They are hardy and ductile while having good strength parameters.
