I am Currently recruiting for an Electro plater for my client in Poole.
This role will include
- Preparing metal parts for electroplating, such as cleaning, degreasing, and masking.
- Mixing and preparing plating solutions.
- Operating electroplating equipment.
- Monitoring the electroplating process to ensure that the correct thickness and quality of plating is achieved.
- Inspecting finished parts for defects.
- Cleaning and maintaining electroplating equipment.
In addition to these specific responsibilities, electroplaters may also be responsible for:
- Ordering supplies and materials.
- Maintaining records of plating processes and results.
- Training new electroplaters.
- Ensuring that the workplace is safe and compliant with all regulations.
Here are some additional details about each of the responsibilities listed above:
- Preparing metal parts for electroplating: This involves cleaning the parts to remove dirt, grease, and other contaminants. It may also involve degreasing the parts to remove oil and other lubricants. In some cases, the parts may also need to be masked to protect certain areas from being plated.
- Mixing and preparing plating solutions: Plating solutions are made up of a variety of chemicals that are mixed together in specific proportions. The electroplater must carefully follow the instructions for mixing the solutions to ensure that the correct thickness and quality of plating is achieved.
- Operating electroplating equipment: Electroplating equipment consists of a power source, a tank containing the plating solution, and electrodes. The electroplater must operate the equipment to ensure that the correct current and voltage are applied to the parts being plated.
- Monitoring the electroplating process: The electroplater must monitor the electroplating process to ensure that the correct thickness and quality of plating is achieved. This involves checking the current and voltage settings, as well as the temperature of the plating solution.
- Inspecting finished parts for defects: Once the electroplating process is complete, the electroplater must inspect the finished parts for defects. This may involve visual inspection, as well as using tools such as micrometers and calipers to measure the thickness of the plating.
- Cleaning and maintaining electroplating equipment: Electroplating equipment must be cleaned and maintained regularly to prevent corrosion and ensure that it operates properly. The electroplater may be responsible for cleaning the equipment, as well as replacing worn or damaged parts.
