What We Do

Photo etching, also known as chemical etching, is a high-precision metal fabrication process that offers a cost-effective option for parts with complex designs and features.  The lack of hard tooling, use of force, and heat makes photo etching an ideal process for all types of part requirements and guarantees burr-free and stress-free results while maintaining low tolerances.

How We Do It

We offer engineering support for design assistance and use photo-etching techniques to help lower your costs.  Our proven processes for rapid response help you meet deadlines and get your products to market faster. Our long-standing supply chain partners comply with our high quality and flexibility standards. Learn how each step in the etching process achieves the precision and tolerances that your parts require.
