Electroforming is a method to produce metal parts by precise deposition of metals onto patterned substrates. Its uniqueness is that you can grow metal parts atom by atom, providing absolute accuracy and high aspect ratios.
The Electroforming Process
What the process involves
Electroforming is a metal forming process in which parts are fabricated through electrodeposition on a model, known in the industry as a mandrel.
The process involves passing direct current through an electrolyte containing salts of the metal being electroformed.
The process continues atom by atom until the required electroform thickness is achieved.
Electroforming is very effective when requirements call for complex parts (burr and stress free holes, accurate hole size and sharp edges) extreme tolerances and light weight.
