Photo etching is an effective solution for producing precision parts that are used in sensing, detecting and measuring applications. These types of components interact mechanically with “the outside world” and electrically with the system or device to which they “report”.
Applications for chemically etched sensor devices include atmospheric sampling, strain gauges, mass spectrography, chromatography, photometry and other laboratory and scientific instrumentation, fire and smoke detection, ground and air transportation instruments. Industrial applications include flow and capacity sensors, pressure membranes, and more. Etched metal sensor elements utilize a wide variety of alloys.
