Electroplating places high and varied demands on quality assurance. This includes determining the metallic concentrations in galvanized baths, composition and thickness of metallic coatings to the microhardness of these coatings. Fischer offers durable measurement devices for coating thickness measurement, XRF material analysis, nanoindentation, scratch test measurements and material testing, that are robust in design and developed to meet the requirements of the electroplating industry.
As diverse as the requirements for electroplated surfaces are the measuring tasks concerning electroplated coatings. Due to the comprehensive portfolio of measuring instruments, Fischer is your reliable partner for solving these challenges. For example, with the FISCHERSCOPE® X-RAY XDV-SDD, both the coating thickness measurement and the analysis of the phosphorus content of an electroless nickel coating can be carried out without any problems on a wide variety of base materials. Handheld coating thickness gauges such as the intuitively usable DUALSCOPE® FMP100 are predestined for coating thickness measurements as part of quality control in rack electroplating.
In electroplating, automated measuring instruments can also be integrated into the coating line. The FISCHERSCOPE® X-RAY 4000 is the solution for inline measurements on electroplated strips – precise, reliable, non-destructive. The tactile alternative for automated coating thickness measurements in a production line is the FISCHERSCOPE® MMS® PC2. This automated instrument is connected to the PLC control via modern communication interfaces. Up to 8 probes can be controlled.
Electroplating shops have to monitor the composition of the plating baths very closely to ensure a continuously homogeneous plating process. For this purpose, Fischer offers the solution package: all industrially applied Fischer XRF spectrometers can be used for solution analysis of almost all electrolytes commonly used in the industry. You only need the appropriate equipment which is included in the solution analysis kit.
Anodizing is used to increase the resistance of aluminum or aluminum alloys as well as for optical accentuation. With the FISCHERSCOPE® HM2000,you determine not only the mechanical properties of thin anodized layers, but also other plastic and elastic material parameters. To avoid color differences in decorative anodized coatings, checking the electrical conductivity of the raw material with the SIGMASCOPE® SMP350 and the FS40 probe is a suitable quality assurance method.
