Technology For Innovators
Advanced Chemical Etching (ACE) has a global reputation for world class manufacturing and this is a title we are justifiably proud of and work hard to maintain.
Our proactive management team encourage a culture of continuous improvement right across the business and investment has flowed into implementing a best-in-class precision etching facility.

Responsive, Agile & Innovative

This makes us responsive to fluctuating demand, agile enough to take on new product introductions and innovative in our ability to deliver engineering solutions to complex problems.

Unrivalled Quality

All of this is done against a firm commitment to unrivalled quality, demanding tolerances and cost reductions for our wide and varied customer base.

ACE’s Chemical Etching Is The Pinnacle In Precision Engineering

  • A Better Alternative

    Precision photo etching is a good alternative to stamping, punching, laser and waterjet cutting.

  • A Variety of Metals

    Producing parts in metals such as stainless steels, aluminium, titanium, copper alloys, nickel alloys and a wide range of advanced alloys.

  • Tolerances ±0.025mm

    Using tightly controlled chemistries, complex profile metal parts can be etched with features smaller than a human hair, with tolerances to ±0.025mm.

  • No Burrs or Stress

    Because the photo etching of precision, micro-sized parts does not create burrs, stress or distortion.

  • Zero Imperfections

    The photo etching process is ideal for safety-critical parts and camera parts all having zero surface imperfections.
