Barrel Plating

barrel plated componentsAccurate Precision Plating offers Barrel Plating as one of our plating methods. Barrel Plating is an efficient way of plating due to its low cost and the fact that it is ideal for large runs of parts that are small and durable. As experts in our field, APP can help determine if barrel plating it right for your needs.  

Barrel Plating Process

The parts are placed inside a barrel that slowly rotates while it is immersed in the plating solution. This method ensures that all parts receive equal, uniform coatings. Electrical contact is made through the use of danglers/center bars that are located inside the barrel. We strongly recommend this method on high volumes of parts, as barrel plating can accomate many shapes, sizes and metals. However, for parts that are larger or more fragile, rack plating would be the better choice.
