A Little About Photo Etching

Photochemical etching is a manufacturing option suited well for thin 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.
