From surface to self-supporting component
BWB uses electroforming to manufacture precision components for medical technology.
Electroforming involves applying a metallic coating (in this case silver) to a support mould. Once the desired coating thickness has been achieved, the support mould is removed, leaving a self-supporting component made from pure silver.
This resource-friendly process ensures every milligram of silver gets where it needs to go. There are no excess shavings, the surfaces bear no traces of any handling, and the component has a homogenous metal structure. The high thermal diffusivity of the silver, which is protected against oxidation by an additional layer of chemical nickel, can thus be optimally utilised in laboratory-technology applications.
Benefit from the advantages of electroforming. We look forward to your enquiry and will be happy to advise you.
