The Significant Advantages of Our
Chemical Etching Precision Metal Milling Services
Fotofab specializes in chemical etching, metal fabrication, electroforming, laser cutting, and wire EDM. The Fotofab process features a trio of fundamental Improvements over traditional manufacturing procedures, including: reduced costs, faster speeds and higher precision parts.
The majority of phototools used in chemical etching are priced between $300 and $400. This is thousands of dollars less than the cost of using hard tools for etching equivalent metal parts.
The phototool used to chemically etch your custom metal part typically takes two days or less to produce. This means you parts can be ready to ship in as little as three days. Design changes can be easily implemented during the process, increasing flexibility and allowing you to get your products to market sooner.
Photochemical etching has the ability to produce unconventional designs within very strict tolerances (within .0005”). The Fotofab etching process is capable of creating the small-scale bars and holes that most stamping methods cannot. We routinely make use of state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD), often at ¼ mil resolution. More details can be found in typical applications of chemical etching.
The affordable pricing, quick speed, and high precision of our photochemical etching process ensures that it is the quintessential method for both production and prototyping of metal parts.
