Electroplated coatings are a great compliment to 3D printed resin parts

  • AM/3D printing gives you geometric flexibility not available with molded parts
  • Electroplating gives you mechanical strength in a process that is compatible with almost all AM resins
    • Nickel Coating is as strong as steel and applied in water near room temperature
  • Printing and electroplating can be done with minimal tooling and fixturing

A combination valuable properties in a single process step

Improves strength and stiffness

Environmental Barrier

EMI shield

Improve finish

Abrasion resistant surface

Long term durability

Using AM and electroplating you can create high end durable products in low quantities for high value applications
