Precision Chemical Etching & Prototyping

Microphoto has assisted in the prototype design and manufacturing of experimental and highly sophisticated metal parts since 1965.

The product-building process involves many steps to reach the level where it can be pushed to production and you need an expert who can provide guidance from material selection and thickness on through the finish. We work with our customers to determine the correct metals, design manufacturability from prototype to high-volume production quantities, and many other considerations related to special project parts.

Benefits of Photochemical Machining for your Prototype

  • Fast to produce
  • Higher precision
  • Production volume ready
  • Wide range of metals can be used

Best of all, we can do the photo chemical etching and assembly for both your prototype and when it comes time to go to production!
