Growel conceptualizes, designs, manufactures, supplies, high-tech Mechanized Return Type plating plants to suit various processes.

Mechanized return type plating plant is suitable for plating a considerable number of components with a similar finish.
The output of such plants is usually medium to large.


Various processes can be carried out with this plant are as stated below:

  • Zinc Plating – Auto-Components, Drawer Rails, Bicycle components etc.
  • Nickel Chrome Plating: Building Hardware, Bathroom Fittings, Bicycle components, Textile Machine Components etc.
  • ABS Plating: Nickel+Chrome plating of small components for perfume bottle caps, Auto-Components.


  • Diverse experience – Supplying plating lines since 1965, 800+ plants commissioned
  • One stop solution – for all spares, consumables, and chemical requirements
  • ISO Certified 9001:2015

Rack Plant

Economical Compared to Fully Automated Line



The plating and transfer of all components is simultaneous. The plant has an indexed fixed cycle time except for long components which travel submerged within the tank. DC current is passed in the electrolytic process with the help of a copper strip provided on tanks & a copper current collector provided on each work-arm.

Automation is greatly preferred in bulk plating operations, predominantly for the following reasons:

    • Consistency
    • Reduction in labour costs
    • Elimination of human error
    • Reduced operational costs
    • Regulated inputs
    • Effective control for production
    • Versatility and Traceability

Automation Features:

  • Load as you Like
  • Automatic current and temperature control as per process requirement.
  • Auto level and conductivity control
  • Auto dosing as per ampere-hour consumption/as per area processed
  • Production and event/alarm data recording
  • Online process monitoring
  • Event warning by SMS/Email
  • Voice Alarm
  • Bar Scanner for parts identification

Data Logging (SCADA) is an integral part of automation and has become a necessary tool for all plating plants. Growel’s sophisticated SCADA system with enhanced features are supplied with all its surface finishing plants. Data Logging helps in:

  • Online monitoring of status of Material Handling, Tanks and Equipment
  • Generating an immediate alarm in case of abnormalities in the process conditions
  • Accurate control of process parameters like temperature, current etc
  • Generation of reports for Day/Shift/Load wise production
  • Recording of all errors and abnormalities
  • Unlimited LAN access for control and monitoring of plant with multilevel password protection
  • Generation of Trend screens for all process parameters in real time
  • Maintaining alertness for all predefined mechanical, electrical, and chemical parameters
