Automotive Photo Etched Parts
We recognize that the automotive industry is constantly challenged to meet changing market demands and national product standards with a high priority on safety. AME supplies automotive chemical etching services with high quality, precision, and quick delivery of photo etched parts to help meet these standards.
Small features and unique designs such as the holes infiltration components are easy to manufacture quickly because of the repeatability in the photo etching process. Whether it's one hole or a million, the parts remain burr-free and the cost is the same.
Our half-etch capabilities on metal surfaces are what give fuel cell platesfuel cell plates their unique design channels for fluid flow and heat exchange.
Photo etched stainless steel is an excellent material choice for fuel cells and other automobile components because of its resistance to corrosion and excellent heat and electrical conductivity.
Aluminum etched products are also in high demand as electric vehicle production increases because it provides efficient heat transfer parts for batteries and other engine systems. And, with its high strength to low weight ratio, aluminum meets the requirements for lighter vehicles.
Photochemical machining provides low-cost tooling that is easily modified which is perfect for quick prototyping. We can often produce small-batch prototypes within 24 hours.
Through partnerships with reliable vendors, AME has long-standing domestic and international clients and we look forward to building more.
