New Products: Photoetched, Laser-Machined Parts

Aug. 21, 2008
A catalog covers a photoetching process that produces parts with intricate patterns, precise tolerances, and bufffree edges for mechanical and electrical applications.

Applications include encoders, masks, filters, lead frames, flat springs, strain gages, laminations, step covers, heat sinks, shields, shims, cathodes, and fuel-cell plates. Materials include beryllium copper, stainless steel, aluminum alloys, titanium, tungsten, nitinol, molybdenum, brass, and spring steels.

The process is also used for medical-device components such as maxillofacial and cranial titanium reconstruction implants, anode and cathode grids for battery technologies supporting implanted medical devices, tungsten opaque components for X-ray devices, blanks for surgical blades, and stiffener bands for valve replacement.

The company can also produce tight-tolerance photoetched screens with tapered or straight holes, custom board-level shielding, and flexible circuits using both adhesive based and adhesiveless raw materials.
