As a basic industry in the manufacturing industry, the electroplating industry will play a fundamental role in realizing a strong manufacturing country.

electroplating technology

Let’s take a look at the application of electroplating technology in the top ten key areas of global manufacturing.

These areas are very dependent on electroplating technology and require electroplating technology to ensure and improve their performance and quality.

(1) New generation information technology industry

The new generation of information technology industry relies heavily on basic equipment such as integrated circuits and special equipment, information communication equipment, and electronic computers, and requires electroplating technology to ensure the stability of the equipment.

Among them, high-phosphorus electroless nickel plating has been widely used in the sub-industry due to its unique corrosion resistance and wear resistance, stable non-magnetic properties, high resistivity and heat resistance.

(2) High-end CNC machine tools and robots

Currently, most CNC machine tools and robots are composed of metal parts, which require high-intensity repetitive movements and high-temperature and high-pressure working environments.

Electroplating technology helps to improve its mechanical strength, ensure its reliability and accuracy, and maximize its corrosion resistance, conductivity, lubricity, heat resistance and surface aesthetics.


The entire aerospace equipment industry chain is in the field of high-end equipment and new materials, with high performance requirements for parts and components.

It is necessary to ensure that its performance stability, quality reliability, environmental adaptability, service life and other indicators meet corresponding standards.

For example, the system-integrated chassis of an aircraft is made of special aviation metal materials.

Needless to say, the embedded lines and plugs are all aviation-specific products, ensuring they are firm and cannot come loose, let alone short-circuit.

(4) Marine engineering equipment and high-tech ships

Seawater is a highly corrosive medium in nature. Especially with the development of economy, the pollution in offshore areas continues to increase, making the seawater environment more complex, and the problem of metal corrosion in seawater environment becomes more prominent.

Since marine engineering equipment and structural parts are used in harsh corrosive environments, their underwater structures have been corroded by seawater and microorganisms for a long time.

Therefore, higher requirements are placed on their corrosion resistance, and it is necessary to improve their corrosion resistance through electroplating technology.

(5)Advanced rail transit equipment

High-speed railway tracks need to withstand the test of extreme climate, especially in plateau areas, and need to overcome the technical problems of plateau frozen soil.

Therefore, railway tracks require some metal surface treatment technology to withstand these extreme tests.

The performance of rails or high-speed trains can be greatly improved through metal surface treatments, such as anti-corrosion, anti-rust, anti-wear, conductivity, lubrication, strength, heat resistance, weather resistance, etc.

(6) Energy-saving and new energy vehicles

Core components such as energy-saving new energy vehicle drive motors, high-efficiency internal combustion engines, advanced transmissions, and lightweight materials require the support of electroplating technology.

Complex-shaped automotive parts such as gears, radiators, and fuel injectors also require protection by the electroless nickel plating process.

(7) Electrical equipment

Electric power equipment needs to break through the manufacturing technology of key components and materials such as high-power power electronic equipment and high-temperature superconducting materials.

In addition, promote new energy and renewable energy equipment, advanced energy storage equipment, smart grid power transmission and transformation and user equipment.

All of these require electroplating technology to provide hardware assurance.

(8)Agricultural machinery and equipment

Many agricultural machinery and equipment need to be used in hot sun or humid environments. Their surfaces are often in contact with soil and sewage, and are prone to corrosion and rust.

Therefore, its parts and surfaces require electroplating to ensure its protective properties.

(9)New materials

Focusing on special metallic functional materials, high-performance structural materials, functional polymer materials, special inorganic non-metallic materials and advanced composite materials, electroplating technology is of great significance to research in these fields.

(10) Biomedical and high-performance medical devices

Since medical devices are in direct or indirect contact with the body and may even be implanted in the body for a long time, their safety requirements are very high.

Many components of medical devices are made of metal. Metal will produce small burrs during processing and is not corrosion-resistant, so it needs to be processed through a metal plating process.

Under current environmental trends, global manual manufacturing will disappear within a few years, and the future will usher in an era of global smart manufacturing.

In the future, the connotation of global intelligent manufacturing will be more reflected in aspects such as quality, brand and innovation, product innovation, quality assurance, and brand building.

At the same time, the electroplating industry will lay a solid foundation for the future of China's intelligent manufacturing.

Rightedge Electroplating Factory, which focuses on high-precision and difficult metal surface treatment, will also give full play to its technical advantages and contribute to global intelligent manufacturing.
