Pino Aliprandini (HK) Ltd is giving a sneak preview of its revolutionary electroplating machine, Orbit 1, at the September Hong Kong Fair. Controlled by mobile app through a Bluetooth connection, the desktop electroplater does non-cyanide processing for pure gold, the three colours of karat gold, and silver.

In arguably another industry first, Pino Aliprandini will run a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in November to generate orders and fund production of the machine. According to company managing director Sam Chong, Orbit 1 will be available for orders at a promotional price on Kickstarter, with deliveries scheduled for two to three months after the campaign ends.
