Tin, Nickel, Silver & Lead on Copper & Aluminum Busbar

All too often electrical parts manufacturers send custom copper or aluminum busbar or other connectors to be electroplated by third-party platers. The process can be lengthy and requires excess packaging, additional freight costs, lost time, and other hazards that commonly occur in shipping. When the plated copper or aluminum components are returned for testing, even the slightest scratch in the plated surface can mean a failed inspection.

Since 1996, Storm has been electroplating right on premises. When you trust Storm Power to perform electroplating services, you insure control over quality, and mitigate exposure to extended lead times. We’ll take the stress off so you can rest easy knowing that electroplating is being performed by experts well-versed in the intricacies of plating copper and aluminum busbar.

You can rely on our decades of plating expertise. We’ve got the right equipment and tank capacity to perform both rack and barrel plating, along with a variety of plating materials to meet the environmental requirements dictated across diverse industry applications. Our Plating Finishes:

  • Tinned Copper & Aluminum Busbar (Matte and Bright Tin)

  • Nickel Plated Copper & Aluminum Busbar

  • Silver Flashed and Plated Copper Busbar

  • Lead and Tin/Lead Alloy Plating on Copper Busbar

When manufacturing requirements demand plating of full production runs or single prototype parts; our bulk plating process allows us to handle it like a champ. You’ll also benefit from our shorter lead times and the associated cost efficiencies resulting from zero set-up fees or minimum volume requirements.  We are plating all day, every day, so your parts will always fit right into our plating schedule.

Full Immersion Electroplating

The anchor of Storm's electroplating process is extraordinary tank chemical titrations and solution maintenance. Together, this approach helps Team Storm provide a well-balanced and long-lasting plating solution.  Both rack and barrel options immerse copper components into an electrolyte bath that produces a uniform coating over edges and the rounded surfaces of bus bar holes and bends. Once plating is complete, components are inspected using precision technology equipment to ensure material composition and thickness meet your specifications.
