Electroforming Process

The electroforming manufacturing method generates an exact copy via replication in metal (typically nickel) of a master mandrel by a process called elctrodeposition. Specific benefits of electroforming are low unit costs, exact atomic scale, repeatability and excellent process control for quality. Often times the design engineer will find electroforming is preferred for many applications requiring a complex true geometric shape form factor, thin walls, and high repeatability.
