Selective plating for repairs and refurbishment in the Power Generation industry

SIFCO ASC services the world's leading players in the power generation industry using the SIFCO Process®. SIFCO ASC's portable method of electroplating sections of a product without using immersion tanks is commonly used on original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products and for refurbishing mis-machined parts. With specially designed, portable equipment and plating technology, SIFCO ASC can repair damaged components on-site. This eliminates major delays associated with disassembly and shipping, minimising downtime.

There are numerous operational and maintenance challenges facing the power generation industry, such as component wear, corrosion, fretting and conductivity. SIFCO ASC surface treatments are used to decrease electrical contact resistance, improve wear resistance, improve corrosion resistance, and develop hard surfaces.
