Barrel plating is widely employed for the bulk processing of small to medium sized components. The types of barrel plating include perforated barrels which are immersed in plating solution and open ended solid barrels in which the solution, the anode and the work are contained inside the barrel (inclined).
Barrels are available of suitable plastic material with perforation of 3mm, 1.6mm, or herringbone. The inclined plating barrels are available in four capacities 0.14 litres (Mini), 0.56 litres (Minor), 2.25 litres (Major) and 9/14 litres (Master).
With the built in mechanism, the barrel is emptied efficiently, simply by hand with minimum effort, discharging the plated articles through a chute into a basket thus eliminating hoist. These barrels are ideally suited for use in limited space, and suitable for, most solutions except chrome.
Wasteful build-up of metal inside the barrel is minimised by specially designed cathode contacts which are completely covered by the articles during deposition. The large capacity of the submerged barrel and the rapid turnaround of loads give the Numinik a greater rated output than most barrels of comparable size.

Barrels are available of suitable plastic material with submerged plating barrel perforations of 3 mm, 1.6 mm or herringbone as desired. Herringbone perforations can be offered only in case of hexagonal barrels.
Cooling coils of suitable material can be fitted in these units if required.
* For spoke and similar wire products wire length should be in multiples of 160 mm or nearby value.
These barrels can be offered with alteration to suit individual specific requirements.
Progressive changes in design & specifications may be made from time to time without prior notification.
