Anode Baskets

Anode baskets are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials.  Anode baskets are designed to hold the anodes, which provide a source of metallic ions to be plated, and carry the electric current that drives the electroplating process.  When selecting an anode basket it is important to consider the chemical environment, the size of the parts being plated and the current necessary to plate the required thickness.
