Value Added Custom Service Options
Our value-added custom services add to our electroless nickel plating quality control aspects that we have in place to maintain our high standards of excellence. Our value-added custom service options include the following.
Our fully-equipped analytical laboratory enables on-site testing of chemical concentrations and impurities using volumetric analysis and atomic absorption testing.
At ENS we are the only metal plating company in Northern California to preserve a fully equipped, on-site analytical laboratory. Our lab allows for real-time testing of chemical concentrations and impurities using volumetric analysis and our state-of-the-art Perkin Elmer AA200 atomic absorption spectrometer. And our latest acquisition is a PinAAcle 500, the world’s first completely corrosion-resistant flame atomic absorption spectrometer. Chemical bath data is collected as bath analyses are performed, and statistical analysis is performed immediately upon data entry, thereby providing real-time process control. Strict supervision and recordkeeping ensures a controlled baseline in pre- and post-process fluids management.
ENS Technology’s provides on-site analysis of any plating chemistry, which is performed in unison with the plating process to ensure absolute quality and consistency throughout the plating and finishing process.
