About the employer

Our Chemical Etching process is used to produce thin (up to 3mm thick) metal components in a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. These metal components (which previously would have been manufactured by conventional machining or blanking operations) are produced using acid etching (photochemical blanking) to dissolve away the unwanted material, leaving you with the exact shape and size of your finished components. The Chemical Etching (also known as photo fabrication, or Chemical Milling) process allows surface detail to be etched into one or both sides of the component at the same time. To find out more about our Photo Etching Process please either contact our customer accounts team now.
