Process: Plating


Plating is an umbrella term that describes the process of enhancing the appearance or resistance of a component by depositing a metal onto the surface of the part. There are many different types and methods of plating available such as electroplating, electroless plating and zinc plating, with the method and material plated to the component dependent on the objective. Gold or silver plating is regularly used within the production of jewellery for aesthetic reasons, whilst components for industries such as aerospace and marine are commonly plated to ensure robustness and protect against corrosion.

Plating projects for quote

  1. Drawings count: 2


    This Qimtek member is looking for a supplier to help with the tin plating of the attached free-issue mild steel and galvanised steel outer gaskets. This work is required in large weekly volumes, in order to prevent rusting. Quotes are therefore required for 80,000 off per week. The size shown in this quote is one of a small number of size variances for this weekly volume, so once the supplier is chosen, all the drawings will be made available and the quote can be adjusted if needed. Circa 50 off samples will be required before the first order is placed. Due to the end industry, pricing, reliable delivery and high quality are all critical factors within this enquiry. Packaging will also be free-issued to the chosen supplier, of 40 off plated gaskets per box. Transport to the buyer is also to be arranged by the chosen supplier. IMPORTANT: There is a non-disclosure agreement running with this enquiry. Please print this off, complete ALL sections, sign and date it and return the page to sourcing@qimtek.co.uk or fax 01256 394600. Once received, all drawings and documents will be released to your account.

    This buyer is looking for a finishing company that does both electro nickel and chrome plating. Destined for end use within the power industry, the attached component is to be free-issued to the successful supplier for the plating to be carried out. This is a one-off job for which there is an immediate order to place, but as the buyer has a massive spend of £600,000 on outsourced finishing, similar work could be made available to the successful supplier at a later date.

    Suppliers that offer bright zinc plating are asked to make contact with the client - a company that spends £350,000 a year on outsourced finishing processes alone. They have a series of parts that require plating - these parts measure 600mm x 600mm and larger, although the client will also require smaller components to be plated at a later stage. Please note that quality and reliable delivery are extremely important to the buyer.
