Electroforming is a manufacturing process that involves the deposition of metal onto a substrate using an electrolytic solution. This process is commonly used in the production of high-precision metal parts, such as microelectronic components, medical devices, and aerospace components. It is a highly precise and repeatable process that can produce parts with complex geometries and tight tolerances.

The electroforming process begins with the creation of a mold or pattern, which is typically made from wax, plastic, or metal. The mold is then coated with a conductive material, such as graphite or copper, and placed in an electrolytic solution. An electric current is passed through the solution, causing metal ions to be deposited onto the mold. The thickness of the deposited metal can be controlled by adjusting the current and the duration of the process.

Electroforming offers several advantages over other manufacturing processes. It can produce parts with high accuracy and repeatability, even for complex geometries. It can also produce parts with very thin walls and fine details, making it ideal for microelectronic components and other small parts. Additionally, electroforming can produce parts with a variety of metals, including gold, silver, nickel, and copper.
