NEW COPPER PLATING AT NITREX NEVADA
NITREX INC. unveiled its fully automated copper plating line in its facility in North Las Vegas, NV. The copper plating line expands Nitrex’s capabilities to provide in-house copper plate masking or stop-off to complement its heat treating business. This means a quicker turnaround time and simpler logistics to Nitrex customers.
The Nitrex Copper Plating Line features automated controls of tank characteristics and chemistry, and a scheduling software powering a robotic hoist for station-to-station parts transfer. This means that plated products are consistent in quality, plating thickness is uniform and results are repeatable.
“I have seen how our customers struggle with copper plating and heat treat quality issues as these are separate processes performed by different suppliers. Typically, the customer ends up holding the ball alone. I am now excited to show off this capability as this will make Nitrex a one-stop shop for heat treating with copper plating stop-off” says George Deering, Nitrex Sales Engineer – Western Region.
