In chemical, pharmaceutical & petrochemical industries nickel plating is used for its special properties, such as hardness or corrosion resistance. Electronics applications range from very large electronic pieces to nano-scale technology.
TPG have a number of processes available to electroplate nickel (including stress free nickel) using jigs, barrel and selective / all over reel to reel plating.
