Electroplating Racks

Electroplating RacksCornerStone Rack & Tooling has the processing technology and quality control required to build racks for chrome plating parts. CornerStone's equipment incorporates the latest technology and is operated by employees who have been trained in the process of building electroplating racks. Our core staff has over 100 years combined experience in the rack and tooling industry and ensures that quality is maintained throughout the manufacturing process.

The CornerStone core staff experience is vital in building quality plating racks, especially when the substrate is plastic. The only school that teaches electroplating rack design is the "university of hard knocks", and with over a 100 years of combined experience the core staff at CornerStone are all "graduates". There are a multitude of factors that must be considered when building electroplating racks, and these factors can only be clearly understood through experience. A few of the critical factors are electrical current distribution, drainage, and warpage.

CornerStone Rack & Tooling provides fast and reliable service while maintaining a superior level of quality and design in building electroplating racks. Maintaining quality while building modern electroplating racks requires "state-of-the-art" equipment and training. CornerStone takes pride in maintaining our manufacturing facility with some of the best machinery and processes available in the industry. Our highly technical representatives spend an equal amount of time with our clients and on the CornerStone Rack & Tooling Shop Floor.

Paint Racks


CornerStone Rack & Tooling can build paint racks and fixtures for a variety of finishing operations including powder coating and wet spray. The CornerStone staff have all the knowledge and experience to design racks and fixtures from "scratch" or to improve a design that is not performing to requirements.

As manufacturing line speeds and densities increase, part placement and positioning become more critical than ever before. The CornerStone staff have all the design knowledge necessary to implement modern processing equipment to the most exacting standards.

Many companies are replacing metal parts with painted plastic parts to reduce weight and cost in products. The switch to plastics complicates the rack design and production procedures. Plastics are more sensitive to the factors of warpage, drainage, and spacing than metals. CornerStone can custom design paint racks to the most exacting standards required. Our staff has all the skills and experience necessary to work with your molding personnel to ensure that all of your requirements are covered. On every job, no matter how large or small, CornerStone builds welding and adjustment fixtures to exact standards. So whether you have 1 rack or a 1,000 racks built, CornerStone will build a consistent rack from beginning to end.

Plastisol Coating

Plastisol CoatingAfter careful analysis of the market, CornerStone Rack & Tooling has installed a plastisol coating system with some of the largest work parameters available anywhere in the industry. CornerStone can coat items with dimensions 9 feet long, 4 feet wide and 9 feet in depth with a weight not to exceed 500 pounds.

Having a plastisol coating system this large requires careful attention to processing quality, efficiency, and environmental controls. CornerStone Rack & Tooling has carefully addressed all 3 of these requirements.

  1. Quality - In order to make certain that our customers receive the finest work possible, CornerStone purchased and installed modern computer controlled ovens to consistently maintain the optimum temperature from load to load.
  2. Efficiency - Having equipment this costly requires that the plastisol coating process be highly efficient to prevent an unacceptable price point for our customers. CornerStone has installed a highly efficient monorail system that substitutes having to "manhandle" the items to be coated. Our staff contributed their vast amount of combined experience in the implementation of the CornerStone plastisol coating system.
  3. Environmental Controls - CornerStone Rack & Tooling spared no expense in implementing one of the most environmentally compliant systems in the industry. CornerStone takes great pride in the responsible protection of our environment.
