Barrel Zinc Plating on Steel Products for the Trucking/Transportation Industry

Industrial Electroplating Company, Inc. was selected by a Michigan customer to provide continuous daily electroplating services on high volumes of parts. This challenging requirement was facilitated through the use of advanced equipment and our ability to provide comprehensive logistical services.

We created a custom-designed automated plating system based on a barrel plating system. Twenty of these plating stations were created to ensure enough capacity was available for the customer. Under normal conditions about 18,000 parts per shift were handled on a 24-hours a day basis. The parts were steel and plated with zinc for corrosion protection purposes, followed by an alkaline cleaning. Parts were received, processed, and delivered in 12 hours or less.

These demanding circumstances were handled with ease thanks to our flexibility in facilitating such requirements with a custom solution. Industrial Electroplating remains dedicated to offering services that do not shy away from advanced challenges.
