Product advantages of using Sandvik Santronic™ pre-coated strip
In the conventional fabricating process of metal parts for electronic devices, there are a number of additional costs related to sending the parts for plating, often performed by a subcontractor. These might include packaging, quality assurance, transportation, reception of incoming goods, sorting and control etc.
In addition, financial costs will arise from capital tie-up, such as material in work, stocks of semi-manufactured parts and increased risk of obsolescence due to long through-put time.
With Sandvik Santronic™ pre-coated strip the finished parts are made directly in the stamping operation. Consequently the costs are limited to the material and the stamping process. All the additional costs originating from a separate coating process are eliminated.
As the fabricating process with Sandvik Santronic™ pre-coated strip does not include any plating the customer saves both time and money. Productivity will be higher compared to a conventional coating process.
Sandvik Santronic™ pre-coated strip can be stamped and formed in the same way as the base materials, and should also be handled likewise.
