Abstract

In electroplating articles such as metallized ferrite core parts, a support fixture is required that holds the metallized ferrite core firmly in the electrolyte, provides a current path to the core, and is resistant to the corrosive action of the electrolyte. These criteria are satisfied by this fixture.

Electroplating Fixture

In electroplating articles such as metallized ferrite core parts, a support fixture is required that holds the metallized ferrite core firmly in the electrolyte, provides a current path to the core, and is resistant to the corrosive action of the electrolyte. These criteria are satisfied by this fixture.

The fixture includes U-shaped conductive support rod 2, shown in B. Channeled bar magnet 4, shown in A, is mounted over rod 2 such that 2 is within the channel, as shown in C. Tantalum sheet 6 is then bonded to the underside of magnet 4 with adhesives or tape.

The metallized core that is to undergo electroplating is held to the tantalum 6 surface through the action of the magnetic forces of bar magnet 4, Current is then passed through rod 2. This, in turn, polarizes the ferrite core, effecting the electroplating of the same.
