Case Study of MetChem’s Electroless Nickel – Barrel Plating and Matrix

HLHC has serviced and built solid relationship with customers in Asia and other countries, customized the best electroless nickel to satisfy their most important requirement. Today our electroless nickel is applied to products of data storage, consumer electronics, cloud, aerospace, medical device, and electrical vehicle in worldwide markets. It is our pleasure to share you that our cooperation with customers in valuable electroless nickel.


Barrel plating

For electroless nickel plating on such small and precision parts, using barrel plating is probably better. Quite apart from any economic advantages, this eliminates any dangers of uncoated areas where two parts are adjacent to one another. However, the amount of dragging-out from nickel bath is much larger in barrel plating compared to normal plating with rack.

Electroless nickel bath is composed by nickel sulfate and hypophosphite, moreover, organic acids feature chelation and buffering, and stabilizers which keep bath in stable. Commonly the dragging-out by racks and parts is fine to operation and production. Nevertheless, if dragging-out is too much, likes barrel plating. The bath might be out of control resulted from excess loss of chelators and stabilizer even replenishing nickel and reduction agent correctly. In the case of normal electroless nickel bath to barrel plating, not customized bath. Issue of white-out could breaks out in certain MTOs thus shortens the bath life, causes floating of process controlling and increasing of cost.

HLHC’s expertise followed and analyzed customer’s processes in fabrication, discussed with scientists, rapidly designed the experiment and verification. The formula, including make-up and replenishment, has be customized to optimal. HLHC have provide reliable electroless nickel processes that not only extends bath life but increases the flexibility of production planning. Hereby HLHC keeps supporting to manufacture of worldwide consumer electronics by outstanding electroless nickel.


Matrix

As one of the most important items in business, companies always pay high attention on cost management. Based on the bloom of pure electrical vehicle and economic recovery from COVID-19, the price of nickel has kept going high since 2016. The chemical cost of electroless nickel is affected by nickel price intensely, almost 42.8% in cost is occupied by nickel with 8 MTOs. Besides, global cargo transport is coming to a critical situation now. Although super high container rate causes sharply increasing of transport cost, enterprise still often gets lack of freight. Therefore, it is also a key to cost management that how to minimize the volume of chemicals in shipping.

Per the requirements described above, HLHC provides the effective solution: chemical matrix. Customers could purchase raw material likes nickel sulfate and hypophosphite from qualified suppliers, manufacture the electroless nickel components by following our instructions step by step and consequently control the chemical cost directly and accurately. Moreover, by matrix enterprise could save to 40% of volume for shipping. Due to lower freight cost, the matrix becomes a beneficial choice for corporation whose factories are spread worldwide.
