Electrical engineers and manufacturers have come to expect easy access to a wide range of metal finishes and plating solutions. In recent years, technology has allowed amazing industrial electroplating processes that utilize a variety of both metals and metal alloys. The end result is to endow final parts with specific characteristics that will enable them to operate ideally in demanding situations.
Electroplating is known to offer a series of significant benefits and features that improve the overall quality of the manufacturing process. Consider using plated wire to enhance your company’s product and position in the marketplace.
Choose plated wire because:
- Plated wire has a protective barrier. Most types of industrial plating create a barrier that can protect devices from corrosion and other atmospheric conditions. Because of the added protection, plated parts are known to last longer than metals that are not plated. Plated wires need less replacing and hold up in extreme conditions.
- Plated wire reduces friction. Nickel plating is used to reduce excessive friction in specific materials (i.e. electrical connectors). Nickel plating improves overall performance while reducing premature wear and tear.
- Plated wire conducts electricity well. The plating of beryllium copper with silver gives users a product that has enhanced electrical conductivity. The product is highly effective in many electronic and manufacturing process.
