What Is Photo Etching Or Chemical Etching?

Photo etching, also known as chemical etching or photochemical etching, is a cutting-edge method used to engrave intricate designs onto metal surfaces with remarkable precision.

Unlike traditional methods that involve mechanical force, photo etching uses chemicals and light to create detailed patterns on various metals. This allows you to create any part you need, whether you need sensors for medical devices, circuit board parts, or simple signage.

Benefits of Photo Etching

When creating intricate designs on metal, you can’t beat photo etching. Discover all the benefits of this unique metal engraving process. 

No Mechanical Stress

Photo etching doesn’t put any additional stress on the metal. This means the material remains undistorted, allowing it to maintain its original strength. This results in a more robust finished product. 

Unparalleled Precision

Photo etching is also ideal for delicate jobs that require an exact fit. It lets you quickly replicate a design and ensure a precise fit when assembled. It also allows you to create interchangeable parts in any design. 

Chemically Dissolved Metal

Instead of engraving with force, photo etching uses chemicals to dissolve the metal and create the desired pattern gently. This reduces the risk of defective parts or damage. 

Ideal for Large Quantities

Need to make a large number of identical parts? Photo etching is perfect for mass production while keeping each piece identical in quality and design.

We can photo etch most metals, including stainless steel, copper, brass, or exotic metals. This makes it a versatile solution for many uses. 

Lower Costs
