Automated Plating Systems
SIFCO ASC offers automated plating systems that can be easily integrated into your production line.
SIFCO ASC designs customised workstations and automated plating systems to electroplate or anodise localised areas on components. We provide full turnkey solutions that fit seamlessly into your operation to meet OEM production component requirements and deliver improved component supply chain control visibility.
Process automation will bring many benefits to your operation:
Automate your plating processes and become more efficient, flexible and adaptable. SIFCO ASC automation is proven to reduce process times and improve production efficiency.
Improved Process Control
Automation provides accurately controlled and consistent deposits with minimal operator involvement. Full component and process traceability can be provided through system data monitoring and reporting capability.
Improved Ergonomics & Safety
Relieve workers from ergonomically unfavourable, repetitive tasks, improving efficiency and ensuring consistent quality.
Reduced Turnaround Time & Supply Chain Risk
Gain control over your full production process, eliminate shipping costs and scheduling issues associated with using an outside sub-contract plating vendor.
Ensure consistent quality, reduce production costs and optimise your operation.

A typical plating system will include one or more preparatory steps prior to the application of the final deposit. Fixturing, masking and motion are determined by the configuration of the part and are engineered to meet your production objectives.
Compared to a typical tank plating line which requires large volumes of chemicals, selective plating technology significantly reduces the volume of solution required. These custom designed, self-contained systems help minimize environmental and safety concerns within your plant.
Powell Electrical Systems Inc., Delta/Unibus Division has reduced the process time taken to selectively plate each side of its copper bus bars by 90 percent, saving approximately $100,000 in labor costs, thanks to a unique semi-automated workstation developed by SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts (ASC), the world’s leading supplier of selective plating technology and solutions.
