Stelmi To Debut Unique Chrome-Plating Process

Stelmi To Debut Unique Chrome-Plating Process

Wednesday, October 16, 2002
 
Stelmi America Inc., Marshall, MI, is set to begin U.S. operations using an advanced, continuous chrome-plating process that company officials claim is new to the North American market, where batch production is typical. In producing long-length hard-chrome-plated steel bars and microfinished steel tubes, the company will perform chrome plating as a continuous process operation performed on traveling bars. Here, the bars translate and rotate one-by-one through a chrome-plating machine that fully encloses the process, without use of open vats or tanks. This method reportedly provides uniformity of plate thickness and enhanced corrosion resistance.
