The art or process of covering anything with a plate or plates, or with metal, particularly of overlaying a base or dull metal with a thin plate of precious or bright metal, as by mechanical means or by electro-magnetic deposition.
The covering of base metal articles with a layer of gold or silver, which may be of various thicknesses and grades. Presence of plating may be discovered by filing and using nitric acid or by subjecting the item to specific-gravity testing.
To apply a coating of metal to an object by electrical depositation. Many fine manufacturers use a rhodium platinum to whiten white gold, since rhodium is a metal more like platinum and is dead white. White gold is formed by the alloys tricking the eye into seeing white, but there is no white gold of course...
The application of a thin coating of metal on metallic components. Plating has the following benefits: Improves conductivity Provide for easy soldering Inhibits corrosion. In selective plating only contact areas of terminal are plated to reduce cost. Plating thickness is measured in micro inches or microns. Tin plating ranges is 100-200 micro inches (2-5 microns). Gold plating ranges from a 5-50 micro inches (0.1-1.3 microns).
Also called "electroplating," it is a secondary operation in the stamping process that involves coating a metal part with another metal substance by electrical means to increase the corrosion resistance of the part.
Monroe Plating, an internal division of McAlpin Industries, offers both automated rack and barrel zinc electroplating processes with clear, yellow, black, and blue-bright chromates. Product size capability ranges from hardware components to mainframe enclosures. Monroe offers plating services to companies throughout the United States and Europe.
A coating that can apply to numerous materials used in costume jewelry, but most frequently applies to metals. Plating is a method of adhering more expensive metals to the exterior of less expensive metals to give the color and appearance of the higher quality metal, for example, gold plating over pot metal.
Plating or electroplating (also called Galvanotechnics after its inventor, Luigi Galvani) is a process in which one metal is coated with another metal using electricity. In jewelry, inexpensive metals are frequently electroplated with more expensive metals, like gold (gold plating), copper (electrocoppering), rhodium (rhodanizing), chromium (chromium plating), or silver (silver plating). The thickness of the metal coat varies. Electrogilded coating is the thinnest (less than 0.000007 inches thick); gold-cased metals have a coating thicker that 0.000007 inches.
Plating is the general name of surface-covering techniques in which a metal is deposited onto a conductive surface. Plating is indispensable as a corrosion inhibitor for the manufacture of computers, mobile phones, and electronic devices as well as other uses such as solderability, hardness, wearability, friction loss, paint adhesion, conductivity, shielding, etc. Moreover, it is a key technology for the development of new machines.
1.) the art of reconstructing a pane by determining the position of any given stamp on a pane. Each position is assigned a consecutive number, beginning with the upper left corner and concluding with the lower right. Plating is only done on early stamps where each stamp on a pane is unique due to minor variation. 2.) the art of reconstructing a production-size sheet of certain booklet panes.
The reconstruction of a stamp pane by collecting blocks and individual stamps representing various positions. This is possible for many older issues, but most modern issues are too uniform to make the identification of individual positions possible.
