Mean Well has reinforced its commitment to a cleaner environment by
replacing nickel used in its manufacturing processes with steel.
Mean Well continually reviews its manufacturing and supply chain
processes as part of its commitment to become a comprehensive Green Enterprise.
Having used nickel plated punched steel for its enclosed range of power
supplies for a long time, Mean Well made the decision to switch to steel after
findings indicated that the nickel plating process produced pollution from sulphides
Moving away from using nickel plated steel, Mean Well switched to
hot-dipped galvanised steel starting with the RS-100 range, completely
eliminating the risk of environmental pollution otherwise caused by the plating
The hot dipped galvanised steel also delivers a different kind of
advantage: hot dipped galvanised steel displays better resistance to corrosion
than nickel plated steel as indicated during salt-mist testing.
