Definitions for "Electroforming"
A process for depositing nickel ions on a metal surface used to make stampers for CD and DVD manufacture.
The process by which a metal master (or 'father') disc is created by electroplating nickel onto the glass master. The father is then used to create a 'mother', and from the mother, a stamper is created to be used in the injection molding machine to create the CD (or used in the press to press a vinyl record).
A jewelry manufacturing process, similar to electroplating, that creates a lightweight layer of gold or silver over a wax model which is then melted out of the finished piece.
