Electroforming – the technological basis

We give unique product designs a reproducible face – no ifs or buts. Our commitment – even to render the most demanding of surface structures reproducible and profitable – is the crucial characteristic that distinguishes our performance. With our high-performance nickel baths, we shape nickel electrolytically on previously manufactured bath models.

The thus created nickel shells are moulded extremely precisely and achieve a layer thickness of 0.1mm up to many millimetres as well as a separation efficiency of 25 to 50 mμ/h up to 1mm/h. The requirement profiles for our tool moulds are varied and are a combination of complex geometries and unique graining (surface structures without separating edges) simultaneously with defined wall thicknesses with maximum high lifetimes.
