Metal Plating Benefits
We are frequently asked how parts can made even stiffer or stronger. At Graphite, we can use a variety of techniques to give the desired outcome, but the one we will focus on here is metal plating. After the part has been sanded and prepared for the process, a thin layer of copper and then nickel can be applied to the component. It is recommended that the part is fully encapsulated, rather than selectively plated.
