Nickel electroplating process at UD Barito Electroplating is a modern methodology installed in an open complex environment and at controlled temperature with trust consideration of specimen composition. The evaluation of process at UD Barito has been undertaken by considering Stainless steel AISI 316L as specimen through a conventional nickel electroplating process. This paper presents the proper scientifically tool to be used at UD Barito in order to meet the time required and the surface layer quality of the electroplated product. The use of ultrasonic to replace air compressor assembly does not cause any harm to the surface finish smoothness and the quality of plated specimen given that the process is conventional. Concerning the process of 10 min compared up to 15 min of the process at UD Barito; showed the facility of ultrasonic assisted the electroplating process. This process is also a useful method in maintenance activities for surface cleaning and for product surface-layer quality enhancement through the coating process. From the data analyzed, the specimen has a hydrogen embrittlement rate range between 20 to 65% of Rockwell scale HRC52.
