Swing plating new type machine:

The new type of swing plating equipment machine, including the rack, rack is provided with a swing frame, swing set frame provided with a plurality of conductive symmetrical V-Block set, each conducting symmetrical V-block seat installed with products hanger, while the product hanger located on plating bath, also equipped with swing mechanism;

Swing plating machine mechanism structure:

Swing machine mechanism comprises centric wheels which swing set 4 frame bottoms, four eccentric wheel drived by swing driving motor for synchronizing & homodromous swing.
Making the product hanger swing plating uniform in plating solution, and the plating solution surround with workpieces update rate will be more fast, plating solution surface contact with parts will be more uniform, reducing the cathode surface swing dead angle, reducing the concentration polarization, so can use a high density current plating method, thus speeding up the deposition rate of the metal ion, plating efficiency can be improved to obtain better electroplating coating film quality.

Swing plating machine application:

Swing plating also called as electroplating rotating head, the device looks good, with the best performance, full-featured functions, is widely used in chemical and electroplating production, especially for copper swing electro plating, nickel plating, gold electroplating, silver, chromium and other processes have better improve:
1. Equipped with automatic and manual control functions, drived by the trigger signal, to achieve automatic rotating head work, will be automatically stop when no plating, to save energy;
2. Automatic alarm function, at a preset time arrive, there will be an automatic alarm to reminder staff pick up the goods, by mean of this, can accurately control the plating time;
3. With adjustable rotation speed regulator, can be adjusted according to the requirements of the rotation speed;
4. Has the return regulator, you can control the head being transferred back period.

Maximum plating workpiece: Can be designed according to customer demands;
Working conditions: continuous production for 24 hours;
Maximum lifting weight: could be designed according to users’ end product.
Suitable for galvanized, nickel, tin, and other plating.

Linear gantry electroplating machinery is characterized using a gantry crane to hoist and carry plating parts (with hanging rod or pole with a barrel roller). With variety plate bathes with in a straight parallel line or more lines, while cranes make a straight line along the track, making the use of one or two pairs crane lifting hook for hoisting, then to make the automatic production line complete the machining tasks according to the program. The gantry crane has advantages of good rigidity, significant hoists weight, stable running, which is suitable for various sizes of plating tank lifting workpieces. For auto line of large length of the electroplating tank, can use this type of body structure. The working rails installed on double sides of plating bath, that has advantages of slowing corrosion when track running, and convenient of electrical sensor fault checking; Using larger coating bath automatic line controlled by high precision computer, which has advanced functions of parameters automatic memory and storage on production process, that is available for quality inspection traceability; and can be equipped with a vibration swing; air agitation; PLC automatic control, precise operation; as well as can be equipped with high precision filter, to ensure high-quality coating and plating; also could be accompanied by high-quality rectifier to ensure the stability of plating.

Barrel plating machine

Barrel plating equipment

When plating workpieces volume is small and with larger quantities, it is reasonable and economical to use barrel plating equipment.

Compare to rack electroplating, Barrel plating equipment has the following advantages:

① Barrel plating equipment without loading and unloading jigs processes, which saving time, and its production efficiency is higher than the rack 4 to 6 times;
② Sometimes barrel plating machinery can also improve the coating quality, because of the constant rolling of the workpiece, it is equivalent of a strong agitation, can make surface bubbles early leave, to prevent adhesion of impurities, then make the coating bright;
③ Because of do not use rack, avoided the print appearance of plating hung racks.

Barrel plating equipment

But the shape and size of barrel plating equipment workpieces are subject to certain restrictions, the appropriate plating layer thickness is also less than rack electroplating, majority the thickness is less than 10μm, while the coating film thickness is not easy to control.

Parts suitable for barrel plating machine: bolts, nuts, washers, etc., while easy to fit together the parts (such as spring, sheets, etc.,) as well as easily deformed, easy to collision damage, required to maintain edges parts, then can not use barrel plating machine. There are many of plating types suitable for barrel plating machine, such as Zn, Cd, Ag, Sn, Cu, Ni, etc..

In order to overcome some of the limitations of barrel plating production line, expansion the barrel drum diameter and length in barrel plating equipment recently, and simplify and automate the loading operation, improve barrel drum solution circulation and so on, so that the barrel plating machine yield can be improved, while suitable barrel plating production line parts range expanded, and operation is greatly simplified.

Mechanical type-Manual plating

Manual plating equipment

Manual plating equipment:

Manual plating line is to rely on manual operation, which entry bath and out of bath relying on people controlling, this kind of machine suitable high quality parts electroplating treatment, but when face quantity production, it will appear low efficiency problem, and because of it’s feature with controlling by people, if there is any quality problem, it is trouble to trace problem source.
Automatic plating machine is run automatically by PLC, with advantages of unified process, suitable for high-volume production and high efficiency. But for some special requirements of precision parts, automatic line is not as good as manual plating equipment so convenient and practical.
In a word, automatic plating machine is suitable for mass production mature processes products, while manual electro plating machine is suitable for electroplating more sophisticated requirements and automatic plating line not easy to treatment.

Advantage of manual plating equipment is better adaptability for various products, which is flexible to arrange production, but the efficiency is low. The auto electro plating machine with obvious high efficiency advantage and relatively stable quality, less quality fluctuation caused by human factor, but the automatic line has feature of poor adaptation for products, some specializing plating production lines only suitable special designed products, when product shape and coating requirements changes, it will reduce the efficiency, and can not take automatic advantages.

Manual plating equipment arrangement:

Manual electroplating line arrangement is basically based on the production process. In order to prevent fatigue and operating interference in processes, usually divided into pre-plating treatment, electro plating treatment, and after plating three sections. The ideal layout is set up in a separate pre-processing workshop, where there is organic oil degreasing, chemical degreasing and etching processes. And pre-treatment of electrolytic degreasing and activation processes moved to electro plating section.

Electroplating process electroplating workshop is based processing areas, some companies will after plating and electroplating in the same area, after cleaning the upcoming electroplating, plating production also complete the drying area. In a small business or workshop class plating processing units, which are more common layout methods. Large electroplating enterprises there after plating a special area will be processed and dried after plating placed in a special area, and additionally has a packaging area. Such management of stable quality and efficiency are very advantageous.
