Atline process analysis with ProcessLab

Process monitoring in electroplating

In the electroplating process material is continuously being deposited on the workpieces. To ensure that the quality of the treated surfaces is consistent, the concentration of the relevant bath ingredients and the reaction products must not exceed or drop below the defined tolerance limits.

This demands close process monitoring, which is normally carried out using wet chemical analyses.
It is a great advantage if samples do not first have to be taken to a laboratory, but can be analyzed directly on the production floor by shift personnel. This allows the yield of the raw materials used to be optimized and the plant to be operated at maximum efficiency.
