Metal etching

Photo etched springs are burr- and stress-free with zero distortion or surface imperfections Photo etching produces complex mesh patterns simultaneously, so you only pay for the first hole Photo etching is suitable for almost any metal - including those hard-to-machine - without tool wear

Benefits at a glance

  • Unlimited complexity – you only pay for the first hole
  • No expensive hard tooling required
  • Low-cost design iterations – fast
  • Burr and stress-free – metal temper and magnetic properties unaffected
  • Lead-times in days, not months
  • Virtually any metal
  • Accuracy to ±0.025mm
