Different parts call for different materials. When you work with Tech Etch, you can get the mechanical or electronic parts you need, made out of the best materials for the job.
We specialize in photo etching (also known as photochemical milling) using materials like tungsten, Elgiloy™, nitinol, molybdenum, titanium, and Kapton® (polyimide film). These materials are especially useful in the medical industry for cathodes, springs, implants, blades, and stents. Our parts can be manufactured as thin as .0005 inches.
Our team can also photo-etch parts with other metals including copper alloys, beryllium copper, stainless steels, aluminum, nickel and nickel alloys, silver, and spring steels.
Photo etching is a great way to go about creating parts out of metal. The process offers:
- Flexibility in manufacturing small and large quantities
- Low cost due to lack of need for expensive tooling
- Quick turnaround times from design to production
Aside from photo etching, we offer laser cutting, forming, plating, laminating, and stamping or thicker metals.
