Electroforming Services

Hollow Metal Components can be formed into any shape.

Thin-walled, hollow electroforms can be used as molds, coldshields, waveguides, precision tubing, precision nozzles, and other light weight, structurally rigid components. Electroforms are produced by electrodepositing thin layer of nickel on aluminum mandrel of any shape, then chemically dissolving mandrel to leave behind hollow, thin-walled metal form. Components can be made as small as 0.020...

Shaft Couplings

Coupling features stainless steel bellow.

BKL Series exhibits high torsional rigidity with zero backlash. Bellow can compensate for axial, angular, and lateral misalignment simultaneously. Moment of inertia is very low due to its low mass and low weight. Shaft hubs are custom bored on each side for shaft sizes from 4 to 62 mm (0.16 to 2.44 in.) with or without keyways. Torque capacities range from 2 to 500 Nm (17 to 4,425 lbs-in.).
