Precision Cadmium Electroplating of a Forging for the Military Industry

New Method Plating Co., Inc. was approached by a customer in the military industry to perform cleaning and cadmium plating services on a forging. Although the customer was located in nearby Connecticut, the job proved challenging due to tight timing requirements and the many military and industrial standards that needed to be met. However, New Method Plating Co., Inc. has long been a NADCAP accredited, ISO 9001:2000 AS9100 certified shop, and has expertise in plating dating back to 1931.

In addition to cleaning the forging, New Method Plating Co., Inc.’s automatic station return plating line allowed for plating and chromating to tightest tolerances of 0.0005" - 0.0008 Cadmium. The parts were made using 4140 alloy steel and heat treated off site to RC 38-40. The facility’s high capacity ovens allow for hydrogen embrittlement relief (pre & post plate baking). New Method Plating Co., Inc. also assumed responsibility for final quality inspection and signoff. The company employs Fisher X-Ray technology to insure precise thickness testing, as well as performing quality testing to NADCAP requirements. New Method Plating Co., Inc. was able to deliver this high volume order (5000 pieces) in just three days.
