Nickel Photochemical Machining, Etching & Milling
Nickel is commonly used for its heat resistance and capability to withstand excess corrosion. Nickel components can be used in a variety of industries, including the medical and electronics industries. Nickel alloys we work with include:
- Nickel- Silver
- Nickel – Iron
- Monel 400: Nickel alloy composed of nickel and copper, primarily, with Iron, Manganese, Carbon and Silicone.
- Nichrome 80
- Inconel x750: Nickel – chromium-based alloy compatible with extreme pressure and temperatures.
Nickel – Silver Applications
With high thermal and electrically conductive characteristics, Nickel-Silver is an ideal electronics-grade alloy. While its name would indicate otherwise, Nickel Silver does not actually container silver. Instead, the material is composed of Copper, Nickel and Zinc. Characteristics of Nickel -Silver include:
- Silver-white color
- Anti-galling properties
- Corrosion resistant
- Cryogenic performance
- No discoloration due to oxygen exposure
Applications such as audio components, jewelry, food/sanitary and marine fittings, lead wiring, battery and electronic connectors, and more use nickel-silver to maintain the integrity of their products.
Nickel – Iron Applications
Nickel-Iron contains 42, 46, or up to 48% Nickel, which creates a material that is ideal for thermal controlled-expansion applications under various temperature ranges. Nickel-Iron is most often used in industries that require easily machined alloys, and hot or cold forming, such as
