About Advanced Metal Etching

Advanced Metal Etching

Advanced Metal Etching was founded in 1993 by Scott Seniff and Blake Geer with the goal of providing exceptional photochemical machining with a customer-centered approach.

Our philosophy has always been to listen to our customers' needs and then provide efficient and effective solutions.  The result of our efforts are streamlined processes, flexible scheduling, fast response, quick turnaround, and more services to meet our customers' needs to ultimately protect their brands.

We have grown with technology, expertise, and experience with a broad range of applications, but the company’s original goal remains the same, to provide attentive detail to manufacturing operations , customer collaboration and deadlines.

AME Parts Now-Quick Turnaround

Emerging technological advances have created a higher consumer demand, which in turn forces OEMs and its suppliers to get products out to market faster. In addition to our fast lead times, usually within a week to 10 days, we developed a system to allow for expedited orders to meet your changing customer deadlines. This process involves quicker quoting, production scheduling and order tracking systems to reduce product cycle time. An increase in prototyping was behind the motivation in the development of our AME Parts Now program; a system developed to move prototype parts and smaller orders out the door within 24 hours.

Technical Assistance

Through the years we have encountered all types of design challenges and techniques as it pertains to different part applications. Complex parts are our specialty. Our tooling engineers will offer assistance with material selection, how to achieve the lowest tolerances within our capabilities, and tooling suggestions for lowering costs.

Secondary Services

An increase of customers in the electronics and R/F microwave industries requesting EMI and RFI shielding and other electronic components prompted us to create an in-house matte tin, bright tin, and nickel flash plating line to decrease lead times. Tin and nickel flash plating is an excellent defense against the corrosion of copper, nickel-silver and stainless steel alloy components. The plating brings an added benefit of improved solderability. 


Our United States Midwest location near major industrial areas enables us to keep metals in stock and deliver to customer locations faster.
