Toyota launches stamping electroplating machine
According to foreign media reports, Toyota Motor Corporation has developed the world’s leading stamping electroplating technology. This technology uses a polymer membrane (solid electrolyte membrane) that allows metal ions to pass through the membrane and be electroplated only to the necessary area, just like a postage stamp.
In the manufacturing process of electronic parts, this technology can be used for electroplating to form copper, nickel and other metal plating layers on the substrate. Toyota also announced that it has entered into cooperation with Japan’s Emperor Technology Co., Ltd. and Japan’s Kanematsu Corporation to produce and sell new electroplating machines based on this new technology, thereby expanding its scope of use. These machines will be put into use on July 1.
Toyota hopes to sell this stamping electroplating machine in the next two to three years as a test machine for many companies. And expand the sales scope from 2023 or 2024, so that it can be used as a complete production machine for general users.
