Technical Etching

Advanced Chemical Etching Ltd has many years of technical etching expertise and vast experience of producing technically challenging etched components for many different industry sectors; in fact we built our reputation on it!

Our company is synonymous for producing metal components that are normally outside the capabilities of the photo etching process. Our Technical Team is well versed in looking at these types of enquiries and coming up with solutions and advanced techniques of how to produce the finished etched metal part. Since our conception in 2000 we have always strived to look at specialised jobs for customers, where they have had difficulty getting them produced by etching or even getting these types of enquiries quoted. This innovative approach by ACE has enabled components to get to market, whereas before they would have stayed in the depths of the development stage.

To further enhance our technical etching capabilities we have put significant investment into a state-of-the-art laboratory. The new laboratory really puts us ahead of the competition and gives us the ability to develop safer chemistry processes and control tighter design parameters…delivering performance never seen in photo etching before. It means we can offer customers the capability to ensure the quality of components for one offs/prototypes can now be transferred into the thousands normally found in mid to serial production.

So if you have a part that you believe cannot be manufactured by etching, please contact our Technical Engineers to discuss your requirement. You can also send your technical etching enquiry, drawing and or cad data to us electronically through our Contact Us page. Or telephone us today on 01952 416666 to challenge us!
