Electroplating Workers

To achieve a good result, electroplating workers must closely control the composition and temperature of the liquid solution containing the plating metal and the amount of electric current that is run through the plating bath. Platers begin by checking a work order that specifies which parts of the product are to be plated, the type of plating to be used, the thickness of the metal to be applied, and the time and amount of electric current that will be required for the plate to reach the desired thickness. Sometimes platers are responsible for mixing and testing the strength of the plating bath.
