At SIFCO ASC, we continually strive to improve the plating process.
It remains our mission to provide safer, cleaner work environments when using the SIFCO Process® of selective plating. And, with the recent launch of our encapsulated plating technology, capitalizing on these two processes was the natural next step in the development of our dripless plating systems.
We developed a collection of dripless anodes for the ASCS to cover a variety of geometries and contact areas, ranging from 0.07dm² (1 in2) to an incredible 1dm² (15.5 in2).
The patent pending dripless tools allow for flexibility in your application and deposit. Technicians can use a variety of cover materials such as white TuffWrap, PermaWrap, or cotton jacket, no different than standard brush plating. And no matter the tooling the deposit can be plated in any orientation… horizontally, vertically, and upside down with no difference in performance or result – this alone is a significant achievement compared to the standard brush plating process.
In addition, the tools can be combined – creating infinitely shape-shifting scalable electrodes to meet the most specific plating applications.
The ASCS is currently available in two sizes:
