Stainless Steel Photochemical Etching

Microphoto Services - Stamping

Stainless steel is one of the most common materials used in photo etching due to its corrosion resistance, low cost, and high versatility. Offering unmatched durability and tolerances, stainless steel can be used in various industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • Medical
  • Electronic
  • Automotive
  • & More!

Stainless steel can contain various elements depending on the application at hand. Common elements used in conjunction with stainless steel include nickel, carbon, chromium, and more. Microphoto’s Photo Chemical Machining process can produce stainless steel products without compromising the mechanical or elemental integrity of the material.
