SIFCO Selective Plating
SIFCO Selective Plating specializes in selective electrofinishing for OEM and repair/rebuild applications. At SNAME, the company will exhibit its equipment and supplies for on-board component repair.
According to SIFCO, its technology reduces equipment downtime, eliminates expensive disassembly and shipping of components, provides a permanent, cost-effective repair, and reduces the need for postplating machining operations.
The electroplating system can be taken aboard ship for in-place repairs of large, hard-to-move components like propeller shafts, bearing seats and turbine casings. Components of the hydraulic, propulsion, electrical, power generation, and structural systems of ships can also be maintained using the process.
