Barrel Plating

Barrel plating is an efficient and relatively low cost method of plating.  Parts are placed inside a barrel that slowly rotates while it is immersed in the plating solution.  Electrical contact is made through the use of danglers or centerbars that are located inside the barrel. This plating method is usually recommended since high volumes of parts can be plated with uniform coverage.

Some parts may be too large or delicate to be barrel plated. Please keep in mind that there is always a chance for part damage or bending due to the nature of the tumbling process. In cases where parts cannot be barrel plated we recommend rack plating which is more labor intensive and thus more costly.
