Cedar Grove, NJ – with over 45 years of innovation in electroforming technology, Servometer / Precision Mfg. Group, LLC has developed a patent pending process to manufacture solid gold electroforms, suitable for both invasive and implantable medical applications.
These very precise, thin-walled, lightweight, structurally rigid hollow shells can be made as small as 0.020 in. (0.5 mm) in diameter out of nickel, copper, gold, silver, or a combination thereof, with walls as thin as 0.0005 in., depending upon the custom requirements. They can also be produced to be hermetically leak-tight and soldered or welded to custom end-pieces.
Servometer electroforms are produced by electrodepositing a thin layer of nickel on an aluminum mandrel of any shape, then chemically dissolving the mandrel leaving behind a hollow, structurally rigid, thin-walled metal form which becomes the electroform. With the specialized electroforming process perfected by Servometer, most custom electroforms require no significant tooling, therefore; several prototype variations can be made and evaluated, as opposed to being locked into a design by expensive dies or molds.
Servometer’s tradition and history are built on a fundamental philosophy of hard work, honesty, and teamwork. Dedicated people providing innovative solutions to serve ever-changing times have built the company. From the early 1960’s when the company’s products were part of NASA’s Telstar Satellite Program, until today, providing precision parts for the United States Air Force air combat missiles and the Space Shuttle Program, Servometer has remained the benchmark of the industry. Today, Servometer provides products and services to a growing global market.
