Optical Reflectors to Non-Imaging Optics and More
Electroforming is a process that creates precise metal components by using electrolytic deposition of metal onto a mold, referred to as the mandrel.
Electroforming can be used to create optical reflectors of various shapes and sizes, such as parabolic, elliptical, or spherical to non-imaging optics that transfer light from a source to a target with optimal efficiency and desired distribution.
With electroforming, you can:
– perform ultra-precision processing and replicate the shape and surface of the mandrel with high fidelity.
– adjust the physical properties of the deposited metal, such as hardness, strength, ductility, and conductivity.
– make parts with complex shapes and high aspect ratios that are difficult or impossible to achieve by other methods.
– reduce material waste and save costs as only the required amount of metal is deposited.
– produce parts with low stress and no tool marks that have excellent mechanical and optical properties.
