Chemical etching, also known as photo etching, metal etching or chemical milling, is a subtractive metal machining process which uses etchant chemistry to produce complex, highly accurate metal components.
For feature dense, tight tolerance parts profiled from thin gauge metals to 1.5mm thick – including stainless steel, aluminium, nickel, brass, copper and titanium – the chemical etching process provides an economical alternative to stamping, punching, laser and water jet cutting.
No mechanical force or heat is used during the chemical etching process, meaning material properties are unaltered and etched components are free from stresses and burrs.
Paarl Precision supplies highly accurate chemically etched components for a variety of industries in small and large scale.
We produce prototypes through to full scale production according to our customers needs.
