We recommend two different variants to achieve a high quality through hole plating: For simple pcbs the riveting press FAVORIT offers a very cheap but effective mechanical solution.

For more sophisticated boards the use of the chemical/galvanic plating through hole (PTH) method is recommended. For this procedure the plating through hole machines of the compacta or profi-line serve as a perfect solution. Moreover, we offer COMPACTA series for a number of different tasks like tin or nickel-gold surface plating, desmear and sealbond application. Compacta lines can be adapted to almost any world wide available systems of chemicals according to your special demands.

Compacta 40 Ni-Au
Chemical Nickel-Gold (Sudgold)

Since early 1990s the alloy surface (nickel / phosphorus & gold) is one of the most versatile surfaces. In this method, a nickel layer forms the diffusion barrier between copper and solder alloy. The gold is dissolved in the solder joint and the liability / IMC formation is done with the nickel layer. Electroless nickel-gold requires an upstream copper activation to start the nickel deposition. The nickel layer increases mechanical vias and increases the abrasion resistance.

To apply the chemical Nickel-Gold-alloy we offer a special machine of the Compacta series. This machine has the following features:

Compacta 30 chem. Nickel-Gold

Protec 2030 and Protec 3040 for Ormecon chemical Tin
Ormecon immersion tin is a method for chemical tin plating of copper surfaces.
The special on Ormecon process is a 0.08 micron thick layer of organic metal, which optimally prepares the surface for subsequent tinning and then prevents the ‘diffusion of copper through the tin.
Ormecon ® CSN meets all modern requirements for PCBs:

To apply the this multifunctional surface we offer a special machine of the Protec series. This machine has the following features:

PROTEC is ideally suited to the Ormecon chemical tinning procedure. The standard machine can process plates up to 200 x 300mm and contains 5 pools for Microetch, combined spray- and static rinse , Organic metal, chemical tinning 7001, hot rinse.

Tank volume 10 litre.
Tank 1: Microetch, ball cock outlet valve, cover, timer.
Tank 2: Spray/ Rinsing regulated by angle seat solenoid valve, ball cock outlet valve.
Tank 3: Organic metal, ball cock outlet valve, cover, timer.
