1 part to 1 million PCS.
Depending on the back log the first prototypes can be delivered within 72 hours
The cost of our minimum order may depend on metal type, thickness, secondary packaging options or any of your requests.
Yes, technically. There are no burrs created when the part is made.
Typically ferric chloride is used, however various chemicals are used depending on the material.
Standard lead times are two weeks. We also offer 5-day, 3-day and same-day premium fabrication services.
Bulk packing, tubes, boxed in foam layers or pick and place trays are used.
No. Unlike traditional machining (such as stamping or laser cutting) there is not stress or extreme heat applied to the metal which could potentially affect the metal properties.
Products that are commonly produced using photochemical etching include RFI / EMI shields, encoder discs, metal meshes and grids, gimbals discs, target sights, flat springs, nozzles heads, etc
DXF and DWG are the preferred format for drawings.
