Electroplating PD261735ON


Electroplating involves the deposition of thin layers of metal on metal components and metal stock. There are several uses for electrodeposited coatings including cosmetic, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance. Knowledge about electroplating and electroplated coatings is important for product design, preventing and solving quality problems, and evaluating supplier capabilities and quality.


If you’re ever involved with metal plating selection, supplier evaluation, and solving quality problems with electroplated metals, then this course is for you. You’ll learn concepts that will enable you to:

  • Decrease product design time
  • Reduce quality problems
  • Quickly solve design, manufacturing, and supplier problems
  • Select capable suppliers

Materials Provided

  • 90 days of online single-user access (from date of purchase) to the three hour presentation
  • Online learning assessment (submit to SAE)
