CBE+ invests £2mln in Europe’s first robotic automated electroless nickel plating line
CBE+ is installing the first 6+1 robotic electroless nickel plating (ENP) line in the UK and Europe, it will be delivered in December and fully operational in March 2023.
This automated plating line will allow the company to undertake a range of projects at its Chesterfield base, including the processing of small, precision-engineered components in high volumes.
The automated line from Sidasa Engineering will reduce the time taken to complete and send large orders to customers and increasing CBE+’s electroless nickel production capacity.
Chief Executive Officer, Marie Cooper, says, 'The new plating line reduces the scope for human error... This results in a consistently high-quality finish on the products we process.
'Automating these tasks means we can redeploy skilled employees to projects that require higher levels of expertise.'
The new nickel-plating line will be linked with the newly commissioned effluent water treatment plant and combined heat and power (CHP) system.
