What is Electroforming?

Electroforming is an additive manufacturing process specialized for the production of high precision metal parts. Its uniqueness is that you can grow metal parts atom by atom, providing extreme accuracy and high aspect ratios.

Once you’ve discovered the benefits of Electroforming, 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.

    The Electroforming Process

    While known as a highly accurate additive manufacturing process, Electroforming is also an electro-deposition process.

    The Electroforming process can be concluded in a series of steps including Cleaning, Coating, Exposing, Developing, Deposition, and Harvesting.

    The electroforming process allows extreme precise duplication of the mandrel. The high resolution of the conductive patterned substrate allows finer geometries, tighter tolerances and superior edge definition. This results in perfect process control, high quality production and very high repeatability. This makes electroforming perfect suitable for low cost production and high volumes.
