The flexibility of the etching process provides a rapid and cost effective method of production of metal components over a range of industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Electronic, Medical, Telecoms and many more.
The low tooling costs mean that we can convert prototype to volume production in a quick and cost effective way, the process also enables customer design changes to be a quick and straightforward process.
In addition to our standard stock metals we also stock Kovar Alloy and Beryllium Copper providing extra choice for manufacturing.
Examples of the types of parts that can be etched are:-
Meshes & Filters
Connectors & Contacts
Fuel Cell Plates
Shims & Washers
Benefits of the etching process over other manufacturing techniques:-
Metal properties remain unaltered
No heat-affected zone (HAZ)
Stress free parts
Phototools can be used on a variety of metals.
The ability to create complex shapes
Rapid design changes can be quickly implemented.
