Revolutionary New Bearing Fit & Housing Repair Service with the Electro-Chemical Metallizing Process that Cuts Cost and Down-Time

Electro-Chemical Metallizing is a portable process that can be used both on-site or in the shop to apply engineered deposits onto localized areas with precise thickness control.

Deposits from 0.0001" to to 0.030" are quickly and uniformly applied onto shafts without the use of an immersion tank. These deposits have excellent adhesion and performance properties that will meet or exceed that of the base material.

I contacted Arrow Electro-Plating to repair a bearing journal by selectively metallizing and grinding the [.020" undersize] damaged surface…We have at this time several hundred hours on the repaired part in a heavily loaded application, and there are no indications of stress or other problems…Thank you for the outstanding quality of the workmanship and the exceptional service. You kept our down time to the very minimum…I highly recommend the service.

Resize Worn or Mis-Machined Bearing and Seal Areas quickly and economically. The Electro-Chemical Metallizing Process has been used for over forty years to resize worn bearing and seal areas on shafts in a variety of industries that include Pulp and Paper, Steel Mills, Power Generation, and Printing. 

Benefits: Repair Components in Place, Eliminate Expensive Disassembly and Shipping Costs, Reduce Equipment Down-Time and Provide a Permanent Cost Effective Repair.

SELECTIVE or “BRUSH” PLATING can be used to repair mis-machining, mis-alignment, wear, scoring, fretting, corrosion and other damage.  SELECTIVE PLATING can effectively repair any type of damage which does not result in structural weakening (eg, cracks or substantial loss of material). 

SELECTIVE ELECTRO-PLATING can produce superior quality plating with a depth as thin as .0001 inch without post machining.  A majority of SELECTIVE PLATING applications are requested between the depths of .0005 and .002.  However, much greater depths of plating can be achieved with SELECTIVE PLATING w/o any loss of quality.  The only real limitation to thickness is economic consideration.

SELECTIVE NICKEL BRUSH PLATING provides quick turn-around time - reducing machine down-time and production delay.  The SELECTIVE PLATING process itself utilizes tight tolerance control for localized, efficient application and delivers superior repair results.  SELECTIVE PLATING is committed to quick turn-around time and superior customer service at competitive prices.
