Veco's Advanced Lithographic Electroforming process is a unique combination of unparalleled electroforming industry experience, advanced lithography technology and in-depth knowledge of metallurgy. It includes 6 steps.
A sheet substrate is cleaned and degreased.
The cleaned metal "raw part" is then coated with a light-sensitive photoresist.
The metal sheet is then exposed to ultraviolet light which cures the photoresist layer.
After the image has been transferred by UV exposure, the substrate is developed, rinsed and dried.
An electrolytic bath is used to deposit metal onto the patterned surface.
The electroformed part can be removed from the substrate after the material has been plated to the desired thickness.
Comprehensive inspection by experts.
