The Electroplating Factory Measures the Coating Thickness by Coating Thickness Instrument


1. Why does the electroplating factory use the coating thickness instrument?


People who are familiar with the plating process know that the thickness of the plating coating is closely related to the cost of plating, so the plating factory needs to use the coating thickness instrument to measure the plating thickness of the plating layer of the plating workpiece in order to find out whether the plating time and plating solution meet the customer and cost requirements.


Perhaps some people think that experienced workers can adjust the plating time and solution solubility and other elements according to the site situation in time, there is no need to use the coating thickness instrument, not to mention that some plating factories will also analyze the plating solution from time to time.


But if you use the coating thickness instrument to measure the coating layer thickness of the plating workpiece at all times, you can accurately control whether the thickness of the workpiece plating meets the customer's needs, and maximize the control of plating time, current, solution and other factors.


Perhaps the difference between the plating cost of a single batch and that of an experienced worker is not great, but the cost of using a coating thickness instrument to sample the plating thickness of the plating workpiece on site is very small. For the long-term operation of the plating business, the cumulative benefit will be good.


In fact, it is not easy to manage the plating workshop efficiently and scientifically, once the plating workpiece has plating failure, there will be a huge loss for the plating enterprises.


So if you want to build a good and efficient scientific plating workshop, you need to be organized and have rules in instrument detection, technology, work attitude, personnel management and technical analysis. That is, the management of the electroplating workshop should have clear standards, strict assessment, and the process of detection.


2. How to choose the coating thickness instrument?


Plating factories are not able to choose the manufacturing process for customers have various requirements on electroplation of workpieces and semi-finished products of different materials, and it is possible to electroplate of any kind of metal.


If the product that the customer need to electroplate is metal, which is magnetic, and needs non-magnetic material coating, such as chrome plating on iron, then you can choose Fe-based coating thickness instrument. If the product they need to electroplate is non-magnetic metal, the covering layer is non-conductive, such as alumina, then you need to choose NFe coating thickness instrument.


Therefore, coating thickness instrument is the most suitable thickness measuring gauge for electroplating factories.


When electroplating the workpiece, if the electroplating factory wants to grasp the thickness of the coating layer of the electroplated workpiece, it needs to use a coating thickness instrument to measure the thickness of the coating layer on the surface of the workpiece.


If the thickness of the plating layer does not reach the customer's requirements, then the plating process should be continued. If the plating layer has reached the requirements but the electroplating process is continued, it will inevitably increase the power and solution costs, which is very uneconomical for the enterprise.


Of course, in addition to the use of coating thickness instruments, electroplating companies also need to continuously optimize the electroplating process and the management of the electroplating workshop in order to obtain the best benefits.
