The Sifco ProcessĀ® is the leading portable of electroplating localized areas without the use of an immersion tank. it is primarily used for enhancing surfaces on OEM components, permanent repairs and salvaging worn or mis-machined parts.

For additional information, we also provide Sifco products, consumables, solutions, and training.

Advantage of the brush plating :

  • Process can be performed on-site
  • Simple to operate
  • Rapid plating on small to medium size areas
  • Reduce the amount of masking required
  • Parts too large to tank plate can be processed
  • Reduces machine downtime and production delays
  • Plate to the required thickness
  • Minimizes hydrogen embrittlement
  • Reduced effluent stream
