Method Of Electroplating

It is often difficult to electroplate electrical equipment in which multiple parts to be plated are insulated from one another thus requiring that an individual connection be made to each part.

The illustrated part to be plated is the contact section of a multicontact relay in which the contacts 10 are formed in a plastic base 11. To carry out the process, a block of plastic 12 is formed to fit the base 11. A sheet of metal 14 such as copper is wrapped about the sides and bottom of the block 12 and soldered to a terminal 15 cast in the block. A batt 16 of metal fibers such as steel wool is placed on the contacts. The block 12 is then forced down onto the batt to complete a circuit from the terminal 15 through sheet 14 and batt 16 to the individual contacts 10.
