Photo Chemical Etching
Conard Corp has specialized in precision photo chemical metal etching since 1965, working with a wide range of metals and assisting hundreds of companies in utilizing photo etching. We provide engineering and design support; rapid turn around of prototypes; and engage in special development projects to help customers solve complex problems.
The photo chemical etching process--also known as photo etching, chemical etching, and photo chemical machining-- enables the easy production of delicate or complex part geometries reliably and consistently. The photo etching process is well suited to very thin metals, down to .0005" thick. It is also capable of handling ferrous alloys to .040", copper alloys to .065" and aluminum to .080".
Conard has the industry leading process for etching aluminum, developed by the company's founder, a metallurgist. Other etching companies have Conard do their aluminum etching.
Conard adheres to rigorous standards including AS9100 (rev C)/ ISO9001, ITAR, RoHS and the strictest environmental compliance.
