Electroforming is an electrochemical additive manufacturing process. Some of the strengths of this process include the high energy and resource efficiency coupled with low power consumption. Specifically, nickel electroforming is widely applied in aviation and space industries for the manufacturing of precision, lightweight parts, such as erosion shields. However, as current techniques rely on traditional chemistry and processing methods, utilisation of nickel electroforming remains a specialist activity. Our team aspires to bring the electroforming process to the forefront of AM by opening new horizons for precision manufacturing and overcoming limitations which have rendered specific products "impossible to manufacture" up to this day.
