Photo Etched Retainers, Shields and Shims
Precision Metal Parts Produced by Photochemical Etching
Other applications for retainers and shields include ball bearings, strain reliefs, connectors and more.
Photo etched parts are flat, burr-free and do not acquire thermal stress or cold working.
Complex Geometries are easily produced with Metal Etching
The chemical machining process enables the creation of precision parts with very complex internal or external shapes. Since the tooling is produced directly from the CAD file and rendered to film on a laser photoplotter, there is no need for costly stamping dies or intricate cutting programs for laser, plasma, waterjet or EDM.
