Hard chrome Plating
Quality, flexibility, speed of delivery, tradition, and the many years of experience of our employees are our greatest assets. We are the only chrome plating plant in the Czech Republic that is capable of chrome plating both small and large parts. We operate independently, unlike other chrome plating plants, which are part of manufacturing companies. This allows us to respond flexibly to the customers’ requirements. We chrome plate individual parts, as well as large series.
|Maximum Diameter of Part To Be Chrome Plated||550 mm|
|Maximum Length of Part To Be Chrome Plated||7,500 mm|
We carry out grinding operations using a new CNC grinding machine from TOS, a leading Czech manufacturer, with a Siemens control system, which can be used for grinding parts with the following parameters:
|Swing over Bed||250 mm|
|Center-to-Center Distance||1 250 mm|
|Maximum Center-to-Center Workpiece Weight||250 kg|
|Maximum Weight of Overhung Workpiece, Including Fixture, Without Support||50 kg|
We are also able to provide grinding before and after chrome plating using our own belt grinding machine, and above all, to use it to polish parts after chrome plating of up to 8,000 mm in size. We are, of course, also able to provide grinding before and after chrome plating of parts of up to 8,000 mm in size using a conventional disk CNC or NC grinder machine with more precise tolerances in cooperation with our long-term and reliable business partners.
On our 4 lathes, we provide polishing operations on small parts, all the way up to parts that are a maximum of 530 mm in diameter and 8,000 mm in length.
Selective Plating Process
Selective Plating is a cutting-edge mobile method for the electrolytic coating of localized surfaces without the use of electroplating tanks. Selective Plating is used for coating in precisely specified locations and in a precisely specified thickness. The metal coating process is much faster than in traditional electroplating (galvanic deposition), and therefore enables an absolutely precise thickness of the metal coating. Selective Plating is used for repairs, as well as for the electroplating of new parts. Just like micro welding, it makes it possible to avoid costly repairs, such as grinding, turning, etc. It is a mobile device that can be used on the customer’s premises, as well as for built-in parts without the need for expensive disassembly, long shut-down times of the machine or assembly line, and subsequent transport.
Micro welding is a technology designed for repairing defects (holes, scratches, etc.) both in new parts and in the renovation of parts, including those firmly incorporated into a machine or a piece of equipment. It is the only way to repair such defect quickly and to avoid costly repairs, such as grinding, turning, etc. It is a mobile device that can be used on the customer’s premises, as well as for built-in parts without the need for expensive disassembly, long shut-down times for the machine or assembly line, and subsequent transport. The use of micro welding can, in practical terms, be combined with the selective plating process.
NOVEX Bohemia s.r.o. and its chrome-plating plant builds upon more than a hundred years of tradition of ČKD Slaný, which it used to be part of. Our greatest assets are the quality of our services, our many years of tradition, flexibility when dealing with our customers, speedy deliveries, and reliability. Our employees have many years of experience in the field of surface treatment and – without exaggeration - are among the foremost experts in the field of chrome plating and related activities. We continue to expand our services to include new technologies, so that we are able to offer our customers a comprehensive solution in numerous versions, not only for new parts, but also for repairs and renovations. We are committed to strict compliance with the laws and regulations in the area of environmental protection, occupational safety and waste management. All operations are monitored on a continuous basis and are checked by a third-party authorized entity providing supervision of all activities related to environmental protection, hygiene, occupational safety and waste management.
