A new capabilities brochure from Tech-Etch describes the company's photo etching process which allows them to produce intricate components for many diverse mechanical and electrical applications that are impossible to duplicate by other production methods. Custom light-gauge parts are produced with intricate patterns, precise tolerances and burr-free edges, in addition to exact repeatability.

Metals such as beryllium copper, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, tungsten, molybdenum, brass and spring steels can be etched, as well as parts from polyimide film for use in medical devices. The brochure contains photographs of over 100 precision parts to illustrate this capability. It also features Tech-Etch's enhanced ability to produce tight-tolerance photo etched screens with tapered or straight holes. Dimension tolerance and minimum bend radius charts are included. Parts range in thickness from .0005" to .0300". Laser machining is offered for thicker parts from .030" to .125". Special processes such as forming, laminating, heat treatment, assembly and finishing are all available in-house to complete any project.
