Metals We Etch for the Energy Industry
A range of high-quality materials are used within the energy industry due to the scope and level of importance it has in our society. The metals that Fotofab photochemically etches for the energy industry include:
Fotofab specializes in photochemical etching. This process is precise and allows for tight tolerances and configurations not possible with traditional metal fabrication methods like laser cutting or stamping.
In this process, a photographically assembled mask is applied to the metal surface, protecting the underlying base metal. A tightly controlled chemical reaction then removes metal, atom by atom, creating exact-to-print parts.
Our Capabilities for the Energy Industry
Fotofab is committed to working exclusively to customer blueprints. This allows us to customize each metal part to fit specific needs. The parts we use are sourced and manufactured in the US.
