Electroplating of Hard Chrome on Aerospace Components

Evaluation of Purpose-built Tooling Concept

With Industry 4.0 the traditional manufacturing and industrial practices are changing. One of the driving technological trends towards this transformation is an intelligent technical assistance in decision-making and problem-solving processes.

The development team of Fokker Landing Gear BV is moving to computer modeling for their hard chrome electroplating processes. Assistance of this smart manufacturing technology aids in assessing design issues of the tooling structures developed by typical trial & error wet trials and mitigate them towards better tooling performance.

Elsyca’s in-house developed simulation technology, Elsyca PlatingManager, has been used for this purpose and is the state-of-the-art graphical simulation platform for analyzing the production performance and quality of the electroplating processes.
