The electroplating drums are used to coat small parts. For this they are dipped into baths filled with electrolytic solution.
The drums for electroplating industry are manufactured from chemical-resistant, nonconductive polymeric materials, such as: polypropylene, polyethylene and polyvinylchloride.
Polypropylene is the most popular material for manufacturing of the drums. Polypropylene drums are manufactured in the shape of hexagonal or octagonal prism with perforated lateral edges or in the shape of perforated cylinder.
Perforations are made for current passage and free circulation of the electrolytic solution. Infeed and unloading of the parts is made through a loading hatch. The drum is rotated with gear drive. Gear motor drive can be fixed on a drum frame, drum carriage or external to the bath.
Polymeric drums and plastic drum carriages are used for galvanizing of the parts surface in the following technological processes: copper plating, zinc-plating, cadmium plating, nickel plating, passivating, blanching, phosphating treatment and others. There are portable and built-in drums. The portable drums can be dipped into any electroplating bath! We can produce plastic drums and drum carriages with regard to your requests.
