A Study on Abrasion-Assisted Electrodeposition of Bright Nickel
A novel abrasion-assisted electroforming technique with the orbital motion of cathode is developed. The related theories are studied and experiments of nickel electroforming are carried out. It is confirmed that the hard particles can effectively remove the hydrogen bubbles and nodules by polishing the mandrel surface. A bright, smooth and compact deposit with the average surface roughness of about 0.12m is produced on a polyhedral mandrel.
