Fotofab's precision metal component fabrication solutions can help get your medical devices to healthcare professionals faster and more affordable.
Etching of Medical-Grade Materials
Fotofab specializes in photochemical etching of medical-grade materials, which is a precise process that allows for extremely tight tolerances and configurations not possible with traditional metal fabrication methods. A photographically prepared mask is applied to the work surface to protect the underlying base metal. A tightly controlled chemistry then removes metal atom by atom, resulting in parts exact to print.
