American Galvano [Corona]
Category: Electroforms
With a widely varied customer base, providing electroforms and related electroforming services since 1994 to both governmental and commercial sectors, American Galvano is helping to define the state of the art of Electroforming.

At American Galvano we have created both sensitive and demanding electroformed components before, however, each new electroform usually presents some interesting deviations from the types of electroforms we have created previously. All successful electroformed components have one inherent basic requirement: Knowledge of the problems before they occur and not hunting for a fix after they do. American Galvano firmly believes in an open line of communication, even though most of our electroforming technology is proprietary - our customers may take an integral and active role in the planning and production of their electroformed component.
