What is Electroforming?
Simply stated the process of electrodeposition or electroforming involves building thin layers of metal onto a precision-machined mandrel and chemically removing the mandrel. Although the technology has been around for centuries, primarily manufacturing consumer goods like CD’s and jewelry, only Servometer has perfected manufacturing convoluted, dynamic bellows electroforms for more than 50 years! Our tightly controlled electroforming process is able to produce unique custom engineered components with the following features: • Wall thickness from 0.0005″ to 0.025″, (0.013 mm to 0.64 mm) depending upon size • Smooth finishes • Near exact shape, form and function. We specialize in complex geometries with deep grooves, unusual shapes, and other intricate design features. We can also combine aluminum mandrel components prior to plating to yield a seamless electroform assembly.
