Thanks to sound material knowledge and expertise in the process for electroplating and chemical surface finishing, BWB-Iten has earned itself a good reputation in many diverse fields of activity.
The copper cap is finished with electroless nickel for enhanced abrasion resistance.
A steel blank is partly coated with several millimetres of copper: known as a thick film process.
Brass parts are connected and linked using copper wire and are prepared for the electroless nickel coating.
Small steel parts are linked using copper wire before surface finishing.
Electroforming is suitable for a wide range of applications – including model construction – such as for a train component shown here.
This brass part is coated partially with electroless nickel – for increased hardness and enhanced abrasion resistance.
A chrome steel plate is electroless nickel plated.
Dimensionally stable steel parts have greater corrosion protection through electroless nickel plating.
A copper part during the electroless nickel plating process: dimensional accuracy and enhanced corrosion protection are essential.
A steel part is degreased before its surface is treated with electroless nickel – in order to improve corrosion protection.
Passivated parts made of chrome nickel steel are dried through blowing out.
Various small parts on the electroplated frame are coated with electroless nickel.
Electroforming is used to produce 3D objects.
Very small parts made of copper are carefully dismantled after the electroless nickel coating.
Through lithography, electroplating and moulding, delicate graphics and elegant lettering can be created.
