Selective Electro Brush Plating workshops now in Auckland & Waikato.

We’re proud to be launching our Selective Electro Brush Plating repair job shops around New Zealand

TEI NZ regionsTEI (NZ) Limited has the Australasian agency for the LDC & the Sifco Selective Electro Brush Plating repair services. TEI(NZ) Limited offers the training, re-certification and also supply of the chemicals. After selling off the Engineering workshop division in Tauranga last year, we are now very proud to be launching our Selective Electro Brush Plating repair as Jobbing shops around New Zealand.

The stand alone jobbing shops will be run independently of TEI by companies that have been trained and certified as Licence Holders for the repairs. These jobbing shops will be able to offer Onsite Selective Brush Plating Repairs.

This electroplating repair which is able to be done in-situe, is totally portable and can save money on down time as the area is able to be repaired by hand on the specific place of damage.

TEI (NZ) Limited has never before offered this to their new and existing customers in New Zealand, having always serviced their customers from their base in Tauranga, New Zealand. We are very excited to be able to offer the customers based in Auckland and the Waikato region a fully operational workshop located in these busy cities to make the Selective Brush Plating repairs more convenient, efficient, cost effective and more accessible.

We are still looking for suitable businesses or individuals that would be interested in the other licences around New Zealand. If you would be interested in finding out more information about jobbing shop opportunities, please contact either Tina Heath on tina@tei.co.nz   or David Kapluggin on dave@tei.co.nz

TEI (NZ) Limited is well known and our clients are New Zealand wide also covering the whole of Australasia (That being New Zealand, Australia, Asia & the Pacific Islands)   TEI are very proud of the achievements made over the past 20 Years and feel very confident and excited with these changes.  Our customers will be better serviced and looked after with direct Jobbing Shops based in these centers rather than the repairs being serviced from one place in Tauranga.  This Jobbing Shop opportunity has never been offered before

Dave Kapluggin & Air New Zealand Selective Electro Brush Plating Training

The training was for Air New Zealand, Christchurch using the new Sifco Zinc Nickel and LHE Cadmium

The training went extremely well and the solutions achieved exactly the required finish.  It was the first time that the new Sifco plating products were used at Air New Zealand Aero support.

The new Zinc Nickel is a very special solution that gives a very good finish with a very simple process to lay down.  This solution is now being accepted as a replacement for Cadmium plating on a few aircraft as it is no-where near as dangerous as the cadmium.  (Handling and application).  The US Air Force is now using it on a number of their aircraft with Airbus (NZ) beginning to use it too.

In this training Dave Kapluggin who is the certified trainer, was asked to demonstrate removing Cadmium with Cadmium in reverse current.  A piece of stainless steel sheet was used to plate a 2″ square of cadmium.  It was then masked showing half of the plated area.  The old cadmium was used in reverse until the cadmium began to be removed.  We then stopped, showing some of the cadmium having been completely removed down to the nickel pre plate and a little area still with a very thin layer of cadmium showing.  This was a great sample to be shown to the new platers and management.

Three electro platers in total were trained using this new chemical.  They were also re-certified for the LDC Selective Electro Brush plating using Cadmium.

Certificates were awarded to all after practical and theory tests were achieved.

The management team at Air New Zealand who came to have a look at the new process and training were very impressed with the new process and application.

TEI are extremely impressed with the new Sifco process having completed the training now for Air New Zealand Auckland and Air New Zealand Christchurch.  Great results achieved to the newly certified platers.
