Requirements for chemical pumps and filters in Reel-to-Reel plating

The Reel-to-Reel plating technology entails a specific approach for electroplating. In the Semiconductor and Electronics industries, many small components such as leadframes and connectors are used. To optimize processing, these components are plated as a stamped or full strip in a continuous Reel-to-Reel plating line. The main electroplated coatings are copper, nickel, tin, and, precious metals silver, gold and palladium. Typically selective plating or spot plating is used for the precious metals.

Hendor has designed and manufactured the most reliable and effective pumps and filters for Reel-to-Reel lines, which contribute to a significant enhanced machine reliability and uptime. The highly reliable Hendor pumps add maximum value by preventing unplanned line stop, loss of production time, and reduces rejection rates. The current product line supports ‘going green’ with minimal carbon foot print and reduced power consumption.
