Electro plating/ diamond coating can be
applied to the following base materials: Steel, aluminium and
The instrument/tool to be coated is first
connected to an electrical contact. Areas to be coated are
determined, then the surfaces which are not to be coated are
covered by a protective coating, such as lacquer, tape or customized
devices. Following, the coating process can be started. The first step
consists of a mechanical cleaning followed by a galvanic pre-treatment.
This is the pre-requisite for optimal hold of the diamond-nickel-layer
to the base material.
Next the object is positioned in a
customized device and diamond grit is applied. Then current is applied
according to a pre-calculated plating velocity. The nickel then starts
to embed diamond grit in the required nickel matrix. Size and shape of
diamond grit as well as depth of coating strongly depend on the
