60687. Looking for plating service in NYC area
February 5, 2018
RFQ: Hi there,
product designer - Queens New York
I am looking to gold plate with 18k and rose gold multiple electronic stainless steel watches. Quantity 10-10000.
Can anyone recommend best, most economic amadeya42/plating process that can deliver best quality/color, long lasting plating?
Ideally, watch metal/bracelet metal should reflect the texture and color of pure, high quality, 18k or rose gold and last for over 10 years.
I've read on this forum about multiple methods of coating, about applying 3-10 micron gold (which increase production costs). Also about clear or gold-toned transparent/translucent top coat/lacquer on top of plated gold.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
If any of local amadeya42 shop suppliers (electro, ion, ZrN, PVD plating) are present here, I would love to meet to see the samples and discuss the costs.
60686. Remove Heavy Oxide from NiCrAl
February 6, 2018
RFQ: We recently had a company roll Evanohm R material to various thicknesses of .004", .005", .006", and .008" at a width of 5.25" and requested annealed. When they annealed the material it appears something was wrong with their process as we have a heavy oxide layer (5 to 8 micron) on the surfaces. We can grind the oxide off or we can chemically etch the oxide off for our needs in small strips. We have several feet (> 500 ft) of material on each roll from which we need to remove the oxide layer. In order to salvage this material are there services that can either mechanically grind or chemically etch this material down controlling the thickness to the +/- .00025"?
