Custom Nickel Electroplating Commercial Hose Industry

New Method Plating Co., Inc. was approached to perform its precision nickel plating services for a customer in the commercial hose industry. The part to be plated was a brass male and female hose barb measuring 5/8″ x 1 ½”, to tightest tolerances of 0.0001″ – 0.0003″. New Method Plating Co., Inc. has over 80 years of experience, as well as maintaining state-of-the-art equipment, including an automatic station return plating line and Fisher x-ray technology to ensure precise thickness testing. In addition, the firm performs to ISO 9001:2015 standards, as well as applicable military standards. Over the years, New Method Plating Co., Inc. has developed proprietary systems for increasing efficiency, a particularly desirable quality for this long run job, which would require large volume production (in the millions).

With a full-service fleet of trucks, New Method Plating Co., Inc.’s pickup and delivery service to and from its Worcester, Massachusetts facility location offered additional convenience to this Rhode Island hose customer.
