We take pride in being one of the few photochemical etching companies globally accredited with IATF 16949, demonstrating our commitment to producing the precise and intricate components demanded by the automotive industry.
For over 60 years, our innovative chemical etching process has distinguished us from traditional machining and the broader etching industry. Operating from state-of-the-art facilities, we offer the flexibility to seamlessly transition from prototype quantities to true high-volume production without compromising on precision, quality and accuracy.
Complex and intricate parts play a vital role in the automotive industry, ensuring optimal functionality, performance, safety, differentiation, innovation and technological advancement. Combining chemical etching with low-cost digital tooling, we have the capability to selectively dissolve precise areas of the chosen metal, enabling precision to within ±0.020mm, all at a fixed cost. This non-contact and non-thermal process eliminates the potential for burrs and stresses, further enhancing component quality.
Fast, low-cost prototyping
True high-volume production
