Industrial electroplating machinery and equipment can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be used to coat metals with a protective layer, to improve the appearance of metals, or to change the electrical properties of metals. Industrial electroplating machinery and equipment typically includes a power supply, an electrolyte solution, and a cathode. The power supply provides the electricity necessary to coat the metal with a layer of metal. The electrolyte solution helps to carry the electric current between the anode and the cathode. The cathode helps to reduce the amount of electricity needed to coat the metal.
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there were 4,200 industrial electroplating machinery and equipment injuries in 2016. The most common injuries were cuts, burns, and electrical shocks. NIOSH recommends that workers who operate or work near these machines be properly trained in safety procedures. They also recommend that workers wear protective clothing, including gloves, aprons, and face shields.
If you have been injured by electroplating machinery and equipment, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Electroplating accidents can often result in serious injuries, including death. An experienced attorney will investigate the accident to determine who is responsible and will fight to get you the compensation you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
