Wolverhampton Electro Plating Ltd
Wolverhampton Electro Plating Ltd offers high levels of customer service and satisfaction to all its customers and is capable of meeting, in full, the requirements of a wide range of markets, offering bulk processes including barrel zinc and zinc nickel electroplating lines with a comprehensive range of passivates and torque modifying top – coats including the latest MacDermid heavy weight trivalent passivates.
The mechanical plating section has recently been expanded to increase capacity and is capable of supplying mechanical barrel plating load with Inverplex, Almac or trivalent heavy weight top coat systems.
A major feature of WEP is the barrel dip spin section for (zinc flake and organic coatings). The Anochrome Group of which WEP is a member, is the only UK based company that offers all the major zinc flake based paint systems such as Dorken’s materials Delta® coating in KL100, NOF (formerly Dacral) Dacromet® and Geomet coatings in 321, 500 and 720 guises, Magni coatings, Magni® 565 or B46 with optional (Black) top coats. Organic coatings include Whitford’s Xylan® products.
WEP is the chosen UK site for the Group’s planetary coating line, the original industry problem of completely blocked recess drives commonly termed as recess infill has now moved on to a more recent problem of ‘restricted’ or tight recesses. A traditional dip spin process comprises of dipping a basket of parts into a paint bath and then spinning off the excess. During the spin process centrifugal force drives excess paint out of the recess for parts with the head facing outwards.Obviously any parts that lie in the basket facing inwards, the centrifugal force drives excess coating into the recess. The WEP plant with tilt reverse and planetary motion moves the part(s) around vigorously vastly reducing the occurrence of this problem.
This plant is ideally suited to small fasteners and self-tapping screws in sizes down to M3 which can be coated in a range of zinc flake or organic black finishes such as Xylan and Delta Coll.
Further processes available on this site include zinc phosphate and cathodic E-Cote all designed for barrel coating of today’s modern fastener requirements.
The above is supported by quality, environmental, training and development accreditation’s, designed to regulate and enhance company performance in pursuit of the objectives and aims within its policies.
