Abstract : The patent describes an apparatus for electroplating a curved surface of a workpiece. A relative and reciprocable motion is provided between the anode and the surface to be plated for controlling variations in plating thickness. The rotary motion is precessed to provide a constant phase shifting to cancel out plating irregularities. The anode is fabricated of a plurality of longitudinally spaced annular segments, with means to independently control the current to each segment.
