Trigger Assembly

A customer in the medical industry came to G. Tanury Plating Co. in need of nickel and rhodium plating of a trigger assembly. The part was made of hollow brass components soldered together and required polishing prior to being plated. We applied rack bright watts nickel plating, rack rhodium plating, after thoroughly cleaning, and copper plating the assembly. A wide range of processes and equipment were used throughout the plating and cleaning of the product.

The product measured 6" long. The rhodium plating measured 4µ" and the nickel plating measured 50µ". Upon completion of the plating and cleaning, we used x-ray fluorescence to determine final thickness of the nickel and rhodium as well as bend tests to assure proper adhesion of the deposits. Once the products were completed and tested, we shipped them to Pennsylvania. The customer was extremely satisfied with our services.
