Founded in 1984, Optiforms specializes in electroformed components. Electroforming is an additive manufacturing process that electro-deposits nickel and/or copper to accurately replicate geometric and organic surfaces.

In addition, Optiforms provides metal platings, vacuum deposition coatings, precision CNC machining, and infrared imaging components. They offer standard products as well as custom solutions to meet your requirements, with comprehensive in-house manufacturing capabilities within their 62,000 square foot vertically-integrated facility.

Optiforms partners with you to solve complex component design, engineering, and manufacturing challenges, delivering exceptional support, quality, and performance.
