METFAB Technologies, Inc selective plating system uses endless rubber masking belts for stamped components or a static masking band for solid strips to control the placement of stripes during the plating process. This control reduces material costs by avoiding over-plate and maintains quality by meeting established product requirements, according to the manufacturer.

Patented by MSA GmbH Electroplating Equipment (Königsbach, Germany), the system also offers reduced precious metal consumption, uniform distribution, component-to-component reliability, stripe placement accuracy of ± 0.004-in. (0.1mm), stripe-on-stripe or multiple-stripe capability, and minimal material stress.

The system's cell allows plating of stripes on flat strip, stamped semiconductor stock, or formed connectors. In addition, multiple cells can apply multiple stripes simultaneously to both sides or to either side of the product being processed.
