Micron Srl is based in Soncino in the north Italian province of Cremona. Ever since its 1985 incorporation Micron has specialized in the process of electroless nickel plating applied to precision machined parts.

The company has developed an exclusive electroless nickel plating process identified by the Niplate registered trademark. Thanks to the R&D activities and feedback from customers, the Niplate process is constantly improved and optimized. Our extensive knowledge of the treatment and the chemistry on which the process is based allows us to guarantee the utmost reliability.

Micron has managed to maintain a path of continual growth over the years, garnering acclaim for the quality its service and treatment offering, until becoming the leading Italian supplier of electroless nickel plating for precision machined parts. With more than 30 years of experience in electroless nickel plating treatments, Micron works alongside customers during the product development process gradually assuming the role of a valuable partner. Micron serves mechanical engineering workshops and the main Italian and European manufacturers in the automotive, pneumatic, hydraulic, textiles, medical, cycles and motorcycles, machine construction, maritime, and aeronautical sectors.
