Reason of cracks in chrome-plated rods during Chrome plating

The process of hard chrome plating is widely applied in various industries such as mechanical parts, molds, automobiles, and aerospace due to its beneficial characteristics such as high hardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and heat resistance. However, Chrome plated rod can experience cracking during the electroplating process due to the large amount of chromium hydride generated, resulting in excessive internal stress and eventual cracking of the chrome-plated layer.

Through electroplating, the surface of chrome-plated rods can form a layer of chromium elements with a hardness ranging from 50 to 60. These rods are often paired with linear bearings in the automation industry, providing linear motion guidance similar to sliding bearings. The resulting linear motion systems are known for their simple design, optimal performance, and low maintenance costs.
