Etch Tech Ltd is a specialist
Photo Etching company providing the manufacturing of customer
specific precision components. Working closely with customers by
providing technical assistance and excellent customer service
ensures we are able to offer the maximum advantage from our
Photochemical Machining techniques. Our core manufacturing process,
also known as Chemical Milling allows you to benefit from low cost tooling. When taken
in conjunction with rapid manufacturing lead times and flexible batch sizes,
high precision etching is your ideal solution.
The Etch Tech management team have a combined experience of 80+
years in the Photochemical Milling industry, ensuring you will

possible manufacturing solution for your project.
By employing Photoetching (which does not involve mechanical contact) you
can specify the finest of features, which are often unachievable by alternative
manufacturing methods. Photochemical Machining does not add any mechanical
stress or processing burrs, resulting in a Stress and Burr Free component. A
typical application for fine work is specialist meshes and sieves.
The Chemical Milling
techniques employed by Etch Tech allow you to benefit from low cost
tooling and rapid manufacturing lead times. The flexibility of
Photochemical Milling makes it suitable for all batch sizes, from a
1 off prototype to full production quantities. Unlike laser or water
jet cutting which calculate cost on “cutting path length” complex
profiles or numerous hole arrays are produced by Photo Etching at no
extra cost. This is also the case with surface etched identification
numbers, company logos and half etched folding lines.
Our Chemical Milling services are not just limited to precision
components, the Etch Tech portfolio includes etched signage and
architectural panels which can be supplied either colour filled or
in the natural state.
