An aerospace customer approached New Method Plating Co., Inc. for copper, nickel, and chrome plating services for a component to be used in an aerospace repair application. The part to be plated was a torque adjusting wrench crafted from 1018 steel.
New Method Plating Co., Inc. used its automatic station return plating line for this project. Following the copper, chrome, and nickel plating, New Method Plating Co., Inc. examined the torque adjusting wrenches with its state-of-the-art Fisher x-ray technology in order to ensure precise thickness testing. The 10" x 8" wrenches were confirmed to meet applicable military (ASTM B456) and industrial (ISO 9001:2000 AS9100) standards.
For this particular job, the aerospace customer requested pickup and delivery in-house. However, New Method Plating Co., Inc. does maintain a full-service fleet of trucks serving customers from its Worcester, Massachusetts location.
