It’s hard to think of any industry in the UK that doesn’t benefit from electroplating in one form or another. From car assembly lines to oil rigs, from mobile phones to ventilators, metal finishing, surface coating, and electroplating plays a pivotal role in every sector of our daily lives.
Here at Karas Plating, we work alongside industry leaders across most of those sectors, producing and delivering exceptional plated components to clients in every industry. Our metal finishing facility in Leigh operates on a 24-hour basis, creating plated materials of the highest possibility.
As seasoned professionals with a seven-decade trading history, we understand better than anyone what our clients are looking for when it comes to electroplating: a fast, efficient service, consistent quality, and technical know-how. Here at Karas Plating, we provide all three, no matter what sector you’re in.
These are just a handful of the industry sectors to whom we provide essential plated components.
The automotive industry uses plated components to make their vehicles more efficient at every stage of their manufacture. From gold-plated micro-components in the ECU, to nickel-plated, corrosion-resistant parts, all the way to metal-plated plastic parts to create lightweight bodywork.
When using metal plating techniques in the electrical and electronic sectors, the two key concerns are precision and conductivity. Often you have to risk one in order to benefit from the other. This is where our expertise comes in, balancing the pros and cons of each metal, in order to deliver electronic components that work the way you need them to.
Whether we’re talking about the National Grid, criss-crossing the country providing the nation with its electricity, or more renewable sources of power generation like wind turbines and solar panels, electroplating is essential to the power industry. Components undergo great pressure on a day-to-day basis and must be robust enough to withstand the strain.
If components used in the power generation industry are under stress, it is nothing compared to the petrochemical sector. From North Sea oil rigs, to the processing centres for petroleum and natural gas, through to the pipeline infrastructure that gets it to our homes, the industry needs plated materials that can survive in the harshest of environments.
The British defence industry utilises many of the electroplating processes that we have perfected here at Karas Plating. Precision plating is required to create reliable defence products. Likewise, they must be resistant to heat, corrosion, and other environmental considerations, since they might be deployed anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.
Whichever sector your business belongs to, we have the tools, the experience, and the technical expertise to assist you with all your plating needs. Do discuss how we can help your business, call Karas Plating today on 0333 121 0151.
