Microphoto can also provide laser cut parts or, a combination of photo etching and laser cutting to produce parts with surface etched functional detail or script and graphics.
Surface details are first etched to specification on sheets of metal, then, the sheets are fixture registered to the laser bed for precise laser blanking of the pre-etched sheets. Once etched and laser blanked, parts can be paint-filled and surface finished to produce parts such as equipment face plates.
For some parts, laser cutting can be the most economical and fastest way to provide parts. Microphoto can provide Laser cut parts in many metal types.
