Enhance plating performance - Elsyca PlatingManager

Update on 07/2018 | We are excited to present to you the Elsyca PlatingManager version 2018!

We have carefully listened to your valued feedback and have implemented a range of new and improved features as well as an exciting new optional module:

  • New module: Use of P-points: This module allows creating P-points (probe points) on your master model. These P-points can be created by clicking on the master model in the graphical window or by importing files with the label and coordinates of the P-points
  • New features: 
    • Zero offset on non-manifold/watertight STL models: This feature allows creating a zero-offset surface mesh for certain STL models that are non-manifold (or watertight), whereas in previous Elsyca PlatingManager releases this was only possible for ‘perfect’ STL models. 
      With the zero-offset meshing you are guaranteed to use the highest geometrical resolution of your model in the simulations!
    • Importing an exported project: 

      This allows importing a previously exported project (project file and sub-folders with all utilized components) directly into the library and project folder. In previous releases of Elsyca Plating-Manager the files and folders had to be manually copied into the library and project folder. This feature allows a more flexible and straightforward exchange of library components and projects between different computers running the Elsyca PlatingManager software

  • Several features have also been improved. If you want to find out more, please contact us!

Description

The key to cost, quality and capacity control of your plating lines.

Elsyca PlatingManager simulates plating performance based on a virtual mock-up of your plating line. It provides detailed information on the plating performance for all parts on the rack and fully supports the production part approval process.

Elsyca PlatingManager is ingenious in its simplicity. It comes with a pre-configured model of your actual plating line infrastructure. As a user, you just load the CAD model of the part, set the process parameters, and press the simulation button. It is really that simple! No CAD skills or CAD software is required.

Key features are:

  • predefined and embedded plating line
  • define process conditions for a full sequence of plating steps
  • robust and fast simulation of current density & layer thickness distributions
  • functionality to verify the impact of tooling and process parameters
  • automated patterning and positioning of parts on the rack
  • verification of the plating package
  • batch processing module to combine and compare different projects
  • basic shapes module to define and resize relatively simple geometries
  • new 2018 module: use of P-points
  • zero offset on non-manifold/watertight STL models
  • importing an exported project
  • integration with SolidWorks
  • automated reporting
  • Elsyca XPlorer, the visualization and post-processing environment

The benefits are plenty and tangible:

No more production surprises, increased capacity, less scrap, improved product quality, drastic time reduction (from product arrival till start of production), … Since you can now even check the plating process before the first physical part enters the building, it enables you to defend your pricing and negotiate with your clients: Higher plating quality may require more advanced tooling which comes at a cost – and you have now the simulation report to prove it!
