A Little About Photo Etching

Photo chemical etching is a manufacturing option suited well for thin metal parts, between .002" and .060". We can create parts with simple to extremely complex shapes. Photo etching is an ideal alternative to laser cutting or stamping because of tighter tolerances, and more precise control over part features. AME holds a variety of metals in stock such as Stainless Steel, Cold Rolled Steel, Alloy 42, Beryllium Copper, Brass, Nickel Silver, Nickel, Kovar, Copper, and Phosphorus Bronze, and more.
