Hofmann Upgrades Zinc Plating Line

Hofmann Industries has completed upgrades to its zinc plating facility in Sinking Spring, Pa. The investment includes new control and conveyor systems, new surface preparation tanks and improved chemical monitoring systems to support the RoHS- and CONEG-compliant plating line. Hofmann’s line is capable of plating items up to 130 inches long.

Originally installed to provide a protective and decorative bright zinc plated finish for Hofmann’s mechanical welded steel tube products, the company now provides zinc plating services to customers throughout the United States in product categories ranging from storage and shelving to pipeline accessories, housewares and agricultural equipment. Hofmann’s zinc plating finish is used by some customers as a “chrome alternative” based on its exceptional salt spray test performance, which exceeds industry standards for interior and exterior use, the company claims.

In addition to zinc plating, Hofmann also manufactures and fabricates welded steel tubing and powder coats at both locations. Combining the Zinc Plating and Powder Coating technologies, Hofmann offers customers zinc plated product with tinted powder topcoats that simulate brass, copper and stainless steel finishes.
