LEADING THE INDUSTRY IN PRECISION ELECTROPLATING TECHNOLOGIES

By enabling thin layers of metals to be deposited onto coils of base metals or pre-stamped parts, Materion’s reel-to-reel electroplating technology provides precise edge definition and location tolerance. The result is cost-effective, high performance electroplated material solutions for end-uses such as connectors, passive electronics and hard drives. As with all of our materials, electroplating may be combined with our other process technologies ̶ including cladding and electron beam welding to create unique material systems.

OFFFERING HIGH PERFORMANCE MATERIAL SOLUTIONS

Our electroplating technology allows for the processing of a wide range of electroplated materials, including:

  • Copper
  • Hard Gold
  • Nickel
  • Palladium
  • Silver
  • Soft Gold
  • Tin (matte & bright)
  • Tin/Lead (matte & bright)

Each of these materials may be combined with others as layers or in separate locations on the substrate. Our process experts will evaluate your requirements and discuss with you the best process for your application.

ENDLESS COMBINATIONS TO MEET YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

Materion’s electroplating capability combines dissimilar metals together with precision locations to deposit them only where they are needed. This process is customized to meet your specific requirements.

Our capabilities include:

  • Overall Plating
  • Controlled Depth
  • Precision Masking
  • Tooled Selective Strip
  • Selective Spot

For fast turn-around of tooled mask applications, our in-house tool room guarantees high quality equipment without the long wait.

Materion products using this technology include select plated Ag and Au connectors and Electroplated connector materials. Materion Electroplating technologies are used in Automotive connectors and Consumer electronics markets.
