Electroforming and Chemical Milling of Perforated Products: A Comparison
Among the various technologies available for the production
of perforated flat metal products, such as stamping, spark
erosion, laser cutting, mechanical milling, etc., two technologies
deserve a better knowledge because of their unique combination
ofa high quality level with respect to accuracy and reproducibility
combined with relatively low production costs. These two are
electroforming and chemical milling. This paper will give you an
impression of both: their technical possibilities, their mutual
basis, their typical differences, as well as the limiting conditions
connected with either of both technologies. Finally, we will take
a look at the costs of precision.
