Electroplating involves the deposition of thin metal coating on metal components and metal stock. Knowledge about the electroplating process steps, important coating properties and features and how they are evaluated, and coating defects and causes is important for getting coatings that meet your specifications.
If you’re involved with metal plating selection, supplier evaluation, and solving quality problems with electroplated coatings, then this course is for you. You’ll learn concepts that will enable you to:
- Make better design and manufacturing decisions
- Solve quality problems
- Select capable supplier
What electroplating topics does this course cover?
This course covers the following topics:
- Process steps for electroplating and supporting processes
- Different process formats
- Coating properties, features, and defects, and how they are evaluated
- Effects of electroplating process steps on coating properties, features, and defects
- Important coating properties, features, and defects for six different coating uses.
- Selecting and specifying coatings
- Evaluating electroplating companies
The course is divided into four modules:
- Module 1: Process steps
- Module 2: Coating properties, features, and defects
- Module 3: Coating Uses
- Module 4: Coating selection, coating specification, supplier evaluation
Each module consists of narrated slides, problems for applying the information taught, and a quiz. There is a final exam at the end of the course.
The course takes 3 hours to complete. A certificate for 3 hours (0.3 CEU’s) is awarded upon successful completion of all course requirements.
This course is targeted to people involved with product design, manufacturing, and supplier evaluation. This includes design engineers, manufacturing engineers, and quality engineers.
