How is chromium and nickel plating achieved?
Current electroplating lines are designed to carry out automatic plating; thus, it is not possible to customize processes for each product. Consequently, coatings are set to an average that does not keep into account the specific needs and differences in thickness.
Bongio, on the other hand, has designed a crane application method that stops between chromium plating and nickel plating, in order to allow for different, specific, electroplating applications. Our lines are semi-automatic, thus galvanic bath time is set specifically for each product in order to achieve ideal results that will last longer.
Our nickel and chromium coatings have a minimum thickness of 16/18 micron and 0,4/0,8 micron respectively, a much higher value than average certified coatings.
