New development: SlimPlate Line®


The new SlimPlate Line® was officially delivered and is now successful deployed in the customer production facility in austria. Decades of experience in surface treatment has been introduced and LUDY Galvanosysteme GmbH filed serveral patents for the new technologie.

Simultaneously the productivity and the plant safety could be increased and the environmental impact is reduced.

This type of system can be flexible for smal and large volumes, ie for the galvanic deposition of copper or as nickel-gold plant.

Also the eductorsystem has been optimized, wich ensures to have a 100-fold verical til 580-fold horizontal circulation at the galvanised parts. Thus a 2.3 to 4.0-fold higher current density is obtained.

Another highlight of the system is the drying of the printed curcuit boards. Instead of a 12kW air dryer LUDY Galvanosysteme invented the drainage (patent pending). The drainage system operates in normal room temperatures (23°C) and the electrical power input is per m² parts only 2.1 kW. The current use at the same drying time is only 1 / 6th, lower investment costs, lower energy costs as a big saving potential for the customer.
