Electroforming: Liga

We manufacture delicate parts and elegant lettering solutions by means of LIGA (lithography, electroplating and moulding). This technology is used primarily for manufacturing high-precision components or lettering made of nickel or copper.

Electroforming: Mould construction

Electroplating mould construction is a method used for the manufacturing or reproduction of highly precise, complex moulded, three-dimensional components for tool construction, for example.
