Cathode Clamp

Think & Tinker cathode clamps are constructed of 0.125" x 0.75" 316 stainless steel flat stock to insure years of use in a full production environment. They are designed to carry 100 amps of plating current without a significant voltage drop (less than 0.050 V) or excessive resistive heating. The insulated handle provides a convenient grip for lifting a panel out of the bath or for holding a panel up to the light for close inspection. The sturdy PVC body is equipped with a 0.25" deep slot to anchor the clamped edge of the panel being plated.

Heavy duty clamp fingers extend into the bath and act as heat sinks to keep the handle at, or near the temperature of the electrolyte. Positive clamping action is provided by stainless steel hex bolts acting against the natural springiness of the stainless steel flat stock. The fingers are attached to the top buss bar through smooth ground contact pads to insure high-current, low-resistance connectivity. The clamp is connected to the plating current source through high flexibility #4 AWG welding cable rated for 100 amps continuous duty.
