Microphoto, burr-free, stress free, strain free metal parts!

m_logoMicrophoto, specializes in etched metal parts and photo etching services. Our etched metal parts manufacturing company has been in business since 1965. Microphoto produces prototype, experimental, short-run, and low-volume production parts out of most metals, and have consistently earned quality and delivery ratings averaging over 99.9%. Our worldwide customer base is found in virtually every aspect of industry, including aerospace, medical, dental, military, electronics, alternative energy, automotive, and decorative. While the majority of our etched parts are manufactured using the photochemical machining (PCM) process (a burr-free, stress-free, strain-free process that can blank parts in any temper of material), we also supply parts produced by more conventional processes such as Stamping, Laser Cutting, and Wire EDM. We also provide secondary services such as Forming, Heat Treating, Plating, Non-Destructive Testing, and Die Blank development.
