Tin-lead Plating

Karas has supplied tin plating to the manufacturing industry for over 40 years and have now become the UK market leader with over 50% of the outsourced market. We have invested in the latest process monitoring and control technology.

Through popular demand from our customers within the stored energy sector (batteries, chargers etc) we have introduced tin-lead plating along with various fluxing operations. Furthermore we have responded to the market demand for high quality tin-lead plating based on a much faster turn round time than currently available. Our advanced process control measures allow us to maintain excellent consistency of all our tin-lead plated finishes. The plant is specifically designed to “get it right first time” with vastly reduced lead times.

Our large capacity allows us to speed up turn round and lower our plating costs. We operate a very accurate pricing model to ensure that our quotes are consistently competitive. Karas also use the latest x-ray technology in controlling this process.
