chemical etching vs. micro stamping

Stamping, also known as pressing, is a manufacturing process whereby flat sheet metal is introduced into a stamping press and a tool and die surface forms the metal into desired shape. The trend towards miniaturisation has driven the industry to micro level. Compared to Stamping, or Micro Stamping, Chemical Etching is a more effective process […]

the chemical etching process explained

Chemical Etching consists of a series of steps. Here we give a brief overview of the process. Cleaning: The material is cleaned to remove all surface contamination. This provides a suitable surface for resist adhesion later in the process. Laminating: The cleaned metal ‘blank’ is then coated with a light-sensitive photoresist in a Class 6 […]
