Electroplating of surfaces made of rhodium, gold, silver, nickel, chrome, copper and tin using rack or barrel plating to improve the properties and appearance of your metallic workpieces.
Electroplating of series, small series as well as of extraordinary single pieces
Dresdner Silber und Metallveredlung GmbH offers many electroplating processes, layer combinations as well as pre- and post-treatment processes. We are able to process series, small series as well as unusual individual pieces in exceptionally high quality.
Different products of our customers require different galvanic processes for surface refinement. During electroplating, the properties as corrosion and wear protection as well as the desired functionality are improved by better electrical conductivity in electrical engineering. We master the wide range of galvanic metal finishing processes for the production of functional and decorative surfaces for all metals suitable for electroplating.
Take advantage of our many years of know-how in drum electroplating. With drum electroplating, we are in a position to coat so-called galvanic mass-produced goods cost-effectively. Contacts and connectors or other small parts can be realized with our automatically controlled treatment line according to customer requirements.
During rack plating, your workpieces are fixed on a rack for the coating process and then electrolytically refined in the galvanic process. With this galvanic coating process we are able to process series and small series electroplating as well as unusual individual pieces.
As a service provider, our company specialises in decorative and functional electroplating processes.
Electroplating serves to improve the surface properties of a workpiece. During electroplating, the positively charged electrolytes are used to apply an electrochemical electroplating of metal to metallic workpieces for surface coating or surface refinement.
Decorative electroplating is mainly used to embellish objects. Among other things we can offer surface refinement as chrome plating as well as gilding and silver plating of jewellery up to cutlery.
Functional electroplating is mainly used for corrosion protection and wear protection. Furthermore, the electrical conductivity can be increased by the surface coating of contacts with the aid of galvanic silver plating and gold plating.
Rhodium is one of the platinum metals. This very valuable metal is distinguished by its extremely hard surface during electroplating and is chemically very resistant. It often acts as a tarnish protection for silverware.
Like hardly any other metal, electroplated gold plating has a very broad and varied range of applications. Gold has very good electrical conductivity, is virtually corrosion-free and is therefore used in technical applications.
The good physical and mechanical properties of nickel electroplating are characterised by its hardness, wear resistance and tensile strength. The nickel coating has a silver-like colour with a matt to shiny good appearance and is also in demand for its corrosion resistance.
We offer various processes of galvanic bright silver plating as well as soft and hard silver plating. Silver has good formability and ductility and very good electrical and thermal conductivity. In addition, we are specialists in the silver plating of contacts and connectors.
Chrome electroplating is used in the decorative and technical fields. For example, matt to glossy coatings with good corrosion protection properties can be produced. Galvanic chrome coatings have a shiny silver colour, high hardness and wear resistance and retain their shiny appearance.
With its reddish colour, copper electroplating is interesting for decorative applications and is easy to polish. In the technical field, copper is used as an intermediate layer before silver plating or nickel plating of copper and copper alloys.
