Electroforming is one of the main manufacturing methods of electrodeposition for the manufacture of metal parts. With the use of electroforming technique, parts can be manufactured with precision dimensions and more accuracy. Here in this paper, process principles and mechanisms of electroforming, outlining its advantages and limitations are described. The ability to manufacture complex parts to close tolerances and cost effectively has meant that electroforming has applications both in traditional/macro manufacturing and new micro-manufacturing fields. The removal of cathode (mandrel) for electroform part is difficult for complex parts. By keeping steady cathode and forcing electroform, it can be removed.
