In today’s world, where precision, quality and service are major competitive drivers, there is a growing requirement for close tolerance, metal components.

Precision Micro has responded to this challenge by assembling a collection of specialist process technologies (including photo etching and electroforming) that enable the Company to manufacture small 2 & 3 dimensional precision parts, in short time frames, with little initial investment by the customers; a true low risk option.

Photo Etching

Photo etching is a high precision, tightly controlled subtractive chemical erosion process which is used to produce complex metal parts with very fine detail.

It offers a more cost effective alternative to stamping, punching, laser and waterjet cutting when processing thin gauge materials, such as stainless steels, aluminium and a wide range of advanced engineering alloys.

The Need for Precision

The fact that Precision Micro enjoys favoured supplier status with leading manufacturers of measuring equipment, microfluidic devices and photonics equipment, is testament to the company’s ability to meet these precision requirements with both photo etching and electroforming techniques.

The Need for Speed and Flexibility

Unlike precision presswork, photo etching uses digital and modular tooling, enabling prototype parts to be produced in hours and modified in equally short time frames, yet still remaining commercially viable in volume production.

Handling Complexity

With most manufacturing technologies, complexity is commensurate with cost. Not so with Precision Micro. Photo etching can produce the most complex of shapes… shapes so complex that they could not be achieved by conventional machining methods… shapes produced at no extra cost to the customer.
