New Gold process for Merlin Circuit
UK based PCB manufacturer Merlin Circuit Technology has installed a new gold process and website.
Merlin's new Ni/Au deep electrolytic gold plating process compliments the wide range of surface finishes already on offer. The chemistry chosen is a cobalt alloyed gold, giving greater hardness and wear resistance than the more common nickel alloyed variants. The new installation will also increase the maximum deposit plated thickness of gold to 5 microns. Managing Director Malcolm Shields commented “we have major plans for sustained growth in the technology sector and today's announcement shows our commitment to continual investment in high quality services and customer satisfaction".
