The plating process is multi-faceted. Every cleaner, acid, rinse and plating solution needs continuous monitoring and adjustments to ensure they remain within tightly controlled parameters. Additions must be frequently made as bath constituents are depleted during production. Just one out-of-compliance step in the entire process can lead to plating failures. To minimize this, YTS AB has invested heavily in state-of-the-art technology and techniques that help ensure accuracy, repeatability, and process control.
Some of the lab technology and practices used include:
•Digital monitoring and recording of vital bath characteristics such as pH and temperature
•Daily titration schedules
•Hardness and purity testing of deposits performed by outside vendors
•Continual bath component additions based on digitally controlled amp/hour meters and charts
