What is Stainless Steel Etching?
Stainless steel is a preferred metal due to its corrosion resistance properties and for the different versatile grades that are available.
Due to its versatility, stainless steel is used in a wide variety of products in many industry sectors.
Benefits Of The Etching Process
Low set-up costs and fast lead times make etching a go-to process in batch sizes of one to multiple millions
The tooling for etching stainless steel is digital, low-cost and can be modified quickly
Right First Time
No heat or force is used when processing stainless steel, so the mechanical properties of the metal remain unaltered and parts are free from stresses and burrs
Component features are etched at the same time so part/feature complexity is not an issue
Types of etched components supplied
Examples of Components That are Etched from Stainless Steel
