Over the recent years there has been an ever-increasing trend to replace metals with plastics in the manufacture of computers, business and industrial machines, automotive and telecommunication components and other electronic equipments. Usually a plastic component will be lighter in weight which in aerospace Industry especially always has been an important consideration. Weight savings have assumed greater importance in other market for example, motor vehicles, where a key factor in achieving greater fuel economy has been reduction in weight overall brought about by changes from metals to plastics, ABS chrome plated parts are one such example for weight reduction in automobile components. Plating on plastics therefore has been developed and widely concerned in manufacturing printed circuit boards, automobile parts, in the electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding application, regulator knobs for fan cooler, push buttons, etc. After plating there is no apparent difference visually between metal and plastic parts. For electroplating, the plastic model needs to be made electrically conductive in order for the electroplating process to work, and in this paper an attempt has been made to show and understand the development of electroplating setup for plating ABS plastics.
