Photo Etching Produces Ultra Small Features in Thin Metal Parts

Photo Etching

PLYMOUTH, Mass.--Ultra small parts are a specialty of Tech-Etch, Inc., a company that continues to "push the manufacturing envelope" so that it can provide engineers the freedom to design features in thin metal parts with few limitations. The Plymouth, Massachusetts company combines photochemical etching with precision metal bending to create extremely small formed features in thin metal parts. Its staff of tool and die makers are reported to apply state-of-the-art techniques to manufacture tools capable of forming features down to 0.003 inch in a wide variety of metals. Parts produced by the company range in thickness from 0.0005 inch and up.

Photo etching, according to Tech-Etch, produces burr-free parts with intricate and complex shapes. Low tooling costs and quick turnaround are also benefits of the process, which can be used to deliver prototypes in five days. The company also offers in-house laminating, plating, heat treating, and assembly (www.tech-etch.com).
