Electro-Barrel plating has the advantage of being able to plate multiple items at the same time, which increases productivity and reduces overall cost. The amount of items depend on the size of each item.
Currently, ITS does Electro-Barrel Plating in Copper, Nickel and Tin.
Electroless Nickel Plating
Electroless Nickel plating has the advantage of having a smooth even coating on the plated component and flexibility in plating volume and thickness.
Strip plating is used when the piece of metal to be plated is, well, a strip of metal. ITS currently have the technology to do Brass (an alloy of copper and zinc) strip plating. This involves the metal to be plated, to be prepared in various solutions where they are then plated at various levels, depending on the clients' needs.
ITS is in the process of setting up a Nickel Strip Plating line, to be able to provide a wider choice of plating for their customers. The line should be fully functional by the end of 2007.
