what is ELectroforming/Photo-Electroforming?
Electroforming is an additive manufacturing process specialized for producing high-precision metal parts. Its uniqueness is that you can grow metal parts atom by atom, providing extreme accuracy and high aspect ratios. (check our design guideline to learn technical possibilities)
Once you’ve discovered the benefits of the technology, a whole new world of opportunities opens up. What if you could produce, atom by atom, stress- and burr-free precision metal parts with micron-scale accuracy? It would give you the opportunity to raise the bar on precision, tolerance, cost-effectiveness, and the capability to withstand higher temperatures.
As the world leader in high-precision manufacturing, Veco is the first in the industry to apply advanced Laser Direct Imaging technology. At Veco nowadays, 90% to 95% of our photolithography process is done by Laser Direct Imaging. The combination of LDI and our leading EF technology has enabled us to further push the boundaries of the industry, providing our customers with high-precision metal components of higher quality, at lower cost, and with a quicker turnaround.
