Some of the many parts include; connectors, contacts, springs, barrels, tubes, stamped parts, plungers, brackets, coins, coils, bullet tips and castings to name a few. Our services include Rhodium Plating Gold Plating, Electro less gold plating, silver plating, Bright Nickel Plating, Electro less Nickel Plating Tin plating, copper plating, Anodizing, Blackening on copper, copper alloys, Stainless Steel and Mild Steel, Cadmium plating, Passivation on Stainless Steel parts, Trivalent Chrome Passivation (Yellow, Green, White), Zinc plating (Acid Chloride Zinc, Cyanide zinc, Alkaline Non-Cyanide & Zinc Nickel Plating and many others.
Our main specialty includes the plating of small parts and components in a variety of barrels. The barrels are set up to accommodate the size and fragility of each part and component.
Suresh Metal Finishers has engineered the production processes to be flexible to our clients needs. We recognize that not all parts or components need the standard mill specifications for finishing. Therefore, our staff of professionals is equipped with the tools to provide the metal finish combinations that will meet your varying needs.Metal finishes such as gold electroplating require different levels of lubricity, hardness or consistent coverage; Suresh Metal Finishers employs patented electroplating processes of part and component preparation, heating and baking.
Electroplating Applications HelpWhich metal is right for my electroplating application?
We have some thoughts on that. Call us and we’ll work with you to build the right specification. In the meantime, here’s some basic info.
Gold plating, nothing else has that color. Also, gold doesn’t oxidize so its’ electrical properties stay constant over time. We add cobalt to increase the hardness and wear resistance. Lots of applications in electrical switches/contacts/connector pins, etc. We follow Mil Spec G-45204 Rev.C.Rhodium plating: Super hard, Super wear resistance, Non-oxidizer white color. Electrical contact applications involving severe duty Mil Spec R-46085 Rev. ASilver plating: No other metal has as good electrical conductivity as silver. It’s rather soft and therefore can wear in sliding contact. Silver is a fast oxidizer, which can interfere with electrical conductivity at contact interfaces. This metal excels in radio frequency (RF) conductivity applications such as antennas, radio chassis, and cellular phone gear. To achieve RF conductivity and control oxidation, we suggest either a thin layer of gold (we call that a "flash" of gold), or paint, over silver.
Copper plating: Copper is frequently used as an undercoat to silver, gold, and Nickel. It adheres to the precious metals very well and also adheres to many base metals far better than the precious metals do. As an undercoat, copper also provides good corrosion resistance for the base metal. Copper can be soldered in electrical assembly and Mil Spec C-14550.
