For over 20 years, RePliForm has been a pioneer in electroplating 3D Printed plastics as well as other non-conductive materials. We pride ourselves in learning how to adapt electroplating processes to a variety of materials and complex geometries. We live in the dynamic environment of additive manufacturing with the end goal to create a composite part able to expand the envelope of what is possible with a 3D Printed Plastic.
People expect plating to give parts a better look and feel, but there are a multitude of beneficial properties it adds to parts. The most unexpected feature is an increase in stiffness and strength in the part to improve overall durability. We’re here to help you select a combination of base material and plating sequences that best suits your project. Plating also adds UV protection, EMI shielding, RF properties, slows or possibly eliminates creep, increased wear & chemical resistance and adds an environmental barrier. We have helped to take 3D Printed Plastics to unexpected places.
In January of 2021, we obtained our ISO 9001 / AS9100D certification to even further serve our customers. We view this not just as for Aerospace manufacturing though, but all manufacturing for those partners who need it.
