Electroplating of Multiple Components in a Rack
Application ID: 73311
When several components are to be electroplated they are typically mounted on a rack in the electroplating bath.
An important aspect is then achieving a uniform thickness of the plated layer for all components mounted on the rack.
This example model allows for investigating the effect of several geometrical and operational parameters on the rack electroplating uniformity.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the Corrosion Module, Electrochemistry Module, or Electrodeposition Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
