Hi, Just popped in from the SolidWorks forum. I'm not a metalurgist, or a plating expert, but the group I work with have been asked to 'look everywhere' for this so I thought I'd give you all a crack at it. We're looking for a lead-free plating option for 6061 aluminum that will leave the part solderable. This is for a small aluminum heater block that is pick & placed onto a PC board. We are currently using tin-lead but have been directed to go lead-free.
Thanks in advance.
