The Novo MFE Advantage:

  • Increased Plating Quality

    Our barrels are fabricated with ProKnob Polypropylene to reduce material catching, eliminate material nesting and increase current flow. Our single-body, thermally bent barrels are extrusion welded to the ends, creating a seamless internal volume and eliminating catch points for fluid to collect. We leverage a tight drilling pattern maximize drainage for better rinsing and faster drying.
  • Increased Barrel Life

    Our single-body ProKnob Polypropylene barrel is one of the most durable resigns in the industry. The extrusion welding on the ends is significantly more durable than traditional hand-welding the joints. The increased drainage facilitated by tight hole pattern and elimination of fluid catch points allows the barrel to be used for an increased number of cycles.
  • Reduced Process Cost

    Novo MFE barrels made-to-order for exact system fit. This eliminates any design retrofits, process compromises or extra manufacturing work-arounds. The seamless internal body reduces dragout and reduces the frequency of wastewater changeover. The textured interior reduces material catching all throughout the barrel which increases product plating yields.
