Chemical Etching is a technique used to engrave metals in an extremely accurate manner. It is actually a chemical engraving in which the corrosive action of an acid is used to etch the desired area.
The advantages of chemical etching:
High accuracy of details and precision of cut
The advantages of chemical etching compared to any other type of mechanical processing aredue to a very high accuracy of details thanks to minimal tolerances. Furthermore, the cut is sharp and precise.
Production speed and low prices
We guarantee fast sampling and production, as well as a great flexibility on quantities. The system costs are low and their realisation timeis very short. Considering that the engravings are made during the same step, design complexity does not affect the realisation cost.
High technology system
During the chemical etching the properties of the materials remain unchanged, they do not undergoany chemical/physical alteration. This is a very important advantage that no other processing can guarantee. Many materials can therefore be etched in thicknesses from 0,05 mm to 3,00 mm.
Additional processing: The experience and professionalism of Fotomeccanica allow the customer to add supplementary treatments on chemical etching creations, such as high-quality galvanizing, enamelling, bending, electro-polishing and chemical polishing.
A sharp and flawless cut, regardless of material and thickness: this is just one of the advantages of laser cutting
