Our nickel etching service offers fast, distortion-free nickel-based components from any grade without work hardening.
Unlike stamping, chemical etching uses low-cost digital tooling to offset expensive press tools meaning prototype and production parts can be supplied in days, not weeks or months.
Chemical etching is well suited to high-temperature nickel-based super-alloy such as Inconel, which offers superior heat resistance and exhibits excellent resistance to corrosion, pressure and oxidation.
