  • Tolerances as low as 10% of material thickness
  • Metal thickness range from .001”- .125″
  • Outside corner radius are equal to 20% material thickness
  • Controlled depth etch features (Bend lines, part identifiers, etc) typically up to 50% thickness within +/- .001”
  • Etching is a burr-free and stress-free process. Stamping and machining impart thermal and mechanical stresses to parts, and the function of some parts require that these stresses are not present. Etched parts are also flatter for this reason.
