FFP Automatic Tab Plater Performance


Deposits .000100 to .000150 inches of nickel, and .000050 inches of gold at 1.5 ft./min.

Process cells with attached polypropylene reservoirs slide out for easy access. The cells are provided with snap top covers and easily removable end wipers assemblies for inspection and maintenance.

  • Greater deposit uniformity
  • Gold savings up to 35%
  • Increased Production
  • Compact design
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Low overall operating costs

Technic's Mini FFP Tab Plating System offers superior plating uniformity with high speed performance. Constructed of quality materials and designed for easy operation and maintenance, the Mini FFP provides the greatest return on investment by providing significant savings in metal consumption.

  • Decreases gold thickness variance to ± 5% (save an average of 30-35% of gold used over conventional methods).
  • Automatic operation increases production by 200% or more on average.
  • Processes PCB's from 4" x 6" to 24" x 24" continuously
  • Minimal space required: 11' x 3'
  • Labor saving operation with minimal staffing requirements
