Advantages over jointing.
 - Easy to decorate, appearing no edges after decorating or polishing.
 - Unrisk of high heat which commonly causing iron to be bent
 - Convenient to reinforce metal in wider area with lower manufacturing costs.
 Building color-spray jig in automotive industry, electric equipments, audio accessories, etc., using copper as a material.

ŘAdvantages over jig made of resin or other materials.
 - Providing high quality jig since plated copper enables a firm attachment to the master model.
 - Offering high durability for copper metal,ensures strongness meanwhile endures cleansing with solvent.
 - Lower manufacturing costs as compared with other jig methods.

Advantages over general iron cavities.
 - Able to build high quality cavity, the capability that general methods can not provide, such as making hairline or chamfer patterns, a letter relief in cavity or on mirror surface.
 - Decreasing a processing time since copper permits much better heat conductivity than iron.
 - Nickel surface provides high strongness, endures every environmental condition and also refuses rust.

  Making sparked copper in replacement of general copper patterning methods.

Advantages of making sparked copper using duplication plating method.
 - Able to completely duplicate with full details.
 - Enabling low manufacturing costs, but obtaining high detailed model.
