Brass Connector Pin

A customer in the electronics industry came to G. Tanury Plating Co. in need of barrel copper and silver plating of brass connector pins to meet Mil Spec QQ-S-365A. We applied a full range of processes on the product, beginning with degreasing and de-oxidizing, thru copper and silver plating to specification, and ending with anti-tarnish coating. Throughout the processes eight pieces of the highest quality equipment were used.

The brass connector pins measured .45" long and .2" wide. The silver plating we applied measured 300 to 500µ"and the copper plating measured 100 to 150µ". We fully tested the finished product for thickness of the deposits using x-ray fluorescence, as well as adhesion. After completing the testing and inspection, we delivered the products to the customer in Rhode Island, who was very satisfied with every aspect of our services.
