Precision Electroforms

Servometer-Precision Manufacturing Group LLC has refined the process for manufacturing precision, custom-designed electroforms and thin-walled, hollow metal components for use in a myriad of high-tech applications.

Servometer electroforms can be used as molds, cold shields, waveguides and for precision tubing and lightweight, structurally rigid components. They can be made as small as 0.020 in. (0.5 mm) in diameter, out of nickel, copper, gold, silver or a combination.

In the electrodeposition process, a mandrel, the negative shape of the desired part, is first machined in aluminum; then the desired metal part is electrodeposited on the mandrel to the desired thickness. Finally, the aluminum mandrel is dissolved electrochemically, leaving the desired electroform. Every electroform starts with its own mandrel.

With Servometer's electroforming process, most custom electroforms require no significant tooling; therefore several prototype variations can be made and evaluated, as opposed to being locked into a design by expensive dies or molds.

Servometer electroforms are suitable for applications involving unusual shapes, close tolerances, low weight, high strength, and ultrathin walls.

Our design staff can design and manufacture custom precision components and assemblies to customer specifications.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
