GROWEL conceptualizes, designs, manufactures, supplies, and installs modern Semi-Automatic  plating plants to suit various processes. 

This semi-automatic plant is an ideal system for semi-automatic electroplating setup. Here the components to be processed are hung on conductive hooks system which move at a configurable conveyor speed. The conveyor can be set based on the process timings.

The conveyor chain and supporting system are made from stainless steel to restrict corrosion for prolonged life and the distance between anodes and cathodes (components) is always constant. Material of construction of tank is usually polypropylene and that of anode basket is Titanium. A precise and controlled current is provided on the copper track on which these copper hooks move. An added advantage of these type of plants is that the Loading and Unloading of the components are at the same point.

A centralized control panel is employed to displays conveyor speed with an installed VFD, current and temperatures of various electrolytes.


  • Diverse experience – Supplying plating lines since 1965, 800+ plants commissioned

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


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