M-Vision

The M-Vision graphical simulation is a state-of-the-art platform for analyzing the potential production performance and quality of electroplating processes. Simulations are carried out using a virtual mock-up of your in-house plating line and detailed layer thickness.

M-vision simulates the electroplating process and provides detailed information on the layer thickness distribution over the various parts on the rack while highlighting potential problem zones.

Alternative part orientations and/or rack configurations can now be calculated in only few mouse clicks. Moreover, additional tooling can be designed and its effect quickly verified.

Once the quality is optimized the rack and part layout is available as CAD-based data to start the construction of the fit-for-purpose racks… more efficient!

The engineer can now adjust the rack load and design active or passive tooling to avoid any shop floor surprises. The quality manager also knows exactly which critical parts to test and where.

Advantages

  • Reduced time-to-market, you can simulate the plating process in advance of production
  • An investment in knowledge as it helps to build and retain critical company know-how.
  • Increased customer satisfaction due to improved quality and yields
