The following list shows the minimum equipment that would be required to establish a small-scale cylinder repair and replating facility.

The list is not comprehensive, and some of the equipment required is proprietary and must be custom-built by Langcourt.

In addition, some equipment cannot be specified until the environmental requirements of the desired location are known.

However, in general terms, the minimum required equipment is as follows:

Many people think that there is a single plating “machine” that does all of the work, but this list (together with the process description shown here) explains the situation a little more clearly.

All of this equipment together with the required working space and storage areas will probably take up a minimum of around 2000 sq.ft (approximately 200 m2)
