Metal Etching Services – Precision Etched Metal Parts Suppliers
Etching is the technique of removing part of material using chemical reaction or physical impact. Etching techniques can be classified into wet etching and dry etching.
What Is Metal Etching
Etching is an emerging chemical etching method. After exposure, plate making and development, the protective film of the area to be etched is removed, and the chemical solution is contacted during etching to achieve the effect of dissolution and corrosion, forming the effect of concave-convex or hollow-out molding, and the etching process is minimal. The opening is related to the thickness of the material. At present, the smallest opening that can be made by etching is 0.02mm. The hole spacing is 0.1mm stainless steel as an example, and the hole spacing of 0.1mm can be made. The depth accuracy is up to +/-0.0075mm.
It can be used to make copper plates, zinc plates and other printing concave-convex plates at the earliest, and it is also widely used in the processing of weight-reducing instrument panels, nameplates and thin workpieces that are difficult to process by traditional processing methods; after continuous improvement and development of process equipment, it can also be used It is used in the manufacturing of precision etching products of thin electronic parts in aviation, machinery, and chemical industries. Especially in semiconductor manufacturing processes, etching is an indispensable technology.The benefit of photolithography on thin metal parts is precision edges with low tolerances. The chemical metal etching process makes the surface smooth and uniform without burrs, pits and stress deformation. Other attractive features of the etching process are speed and low cost for parts with complex features and complex designs.

Etching From Prototype to Production – Why Choose Us?
Most design engineers trust “traditional” sheet metal fabrication. However, for many industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics and healthcare, the manufacturing of complex precision components can present challenges.
Laser Cutting And Stamping are two of the most common methods of shaping and cutting detailed design features, but, while reliable, they can also create in-process issues.
There is a solution: photochemical etching, a metalworking process that uses chemical etchants to create complex and high-precision components. Although easy to define, it is important to understand the main reasons for choosing photolithography in the production process.
Photochemical Etching eliminates potential stress as there is no thermal or physical impact on the etching process. Again, no punchy or harsh cuts, and no burr-like edges. By using photochemical etching, you can eliminate uncertainty and guarantee quality and repeatability of all components.
Photochemical Etching can simplify this process because it eliminates stress and burrs, enabling product delivery to an exceptional standard in days rather than weeks or months. It also reduces tooling costs as problems caused by traditional methods no longer need to be corrected, providing certainty throughout the supply chain.

Metal Etching Materials – Materials for Precision Etching
There is a multitude of materials available for precision etching. Here are some notable cases of metal etched. During the design phase, engineers decide which type of metal is the best choice for a part’s function in many industrial applications.
For example, most electronic components require non-corrosive, highly conductive metals such as copper and phosphor bronze. In the automotive and aerospace industries, the weight and strength of metals are very important.Aluminum is one of the popular materials used for etching manufacturing and its four most common grades are especially suited as etching, that is, 1000 series, 3000 series,4000 series, 5000 series and 6000 series.
However, the results are the same for all metal etched parts.Stainless steel is an ideal option to fabricate etched parts because of its great weldability, formability, and corrosion tolerance.Granted, not all metal types are etched in the same process, for example photoetching copper involves a different etchant than steel, while photoetching aluminum requires lower temperatures in the etcher. For Copper, it has high formability, strength, corrosion resistance, and conductivity, so it’s also a perfect material used in the precision etching process.
- Stainless Steel – Corrosion resistance, good high and low temperature performance, good toughness, easy forming, good weldability
- Copper – Excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, solderability, strength and ductility make it suitable for forming
- Beryllium Copper – Stronger than copper, maintains strength at low temperatures, conducts electricity and heat, resists corrosion, can be hardened or softened by heat treatment, suitable for forming
- Brass – Like other red metals, it is a good thermal and electrical conductor, ductile, corrosion and wear resistant
- Cold Rolled Steel – high strength, smoother and brighter surface than carbon steel, making it more resistant to corrosion, spring properties, retains shape when formed
- Aluminum – good conductor of heat and electricity, good toughness, high strength at extreme temperatures, corrosion resistant
