Costs, smooth operation and lead times are key factors in the success and efficiency of the supply chain, especially where critical components are concerned.

Our chemical etching process offers a faster and more repeatable solution to traditional methods such as water jetting, laser cutting and stamping: it is a highly precise and efficient way to create intricate parts and offers several important benefits that contribute to the overall success of the supply chain.

precision and accuracy

First and foremost, chemical etching allows for the economical production of complex and detailed components with high accuracy. This is essential to industries that require precision parts, such as electronics medical, digital printing, semiconductor and aerospace. The process ensures that the required elements are meticulously etched, resulting in optimum performance and consistent quality.


Unlike other methods, chemical etching does not require expensive tooling or set-up: even varied and complex parts can be produced from a single tool, producing many component types in one production run. This makes it a much faster and more affordable option, especially for small-scale production or prototyping. It also results in less waste -important in a climate where we are always looking to reduce the burden on raw materials. If required, we offer an option to hold inventory in stock , which helps protect our customers when faced with sudden, unanticipated requirements.

fast turnaround time

Chemical etching enables quick turnaround times in the supply chain. The process is highly efficient and can be easily scaled up or down to meet the demands of the production schedule. This flexibility allows our customers to respond quickly to market changes and customer demands, ensuring timely delivery of products. Plus, because chemical etching is highly accurate and creates burr- and stress-free parts, it significantly reduces the risk of having to repeat a production run due to errors or loss of quality.


Chemical etching is key to the supply chain due to its precision, cost-effectiveness and efficiency. It enables the production of intricate components with high accuracy, while also offering a more affordable manufacturing solution. With its quick turnaround times, Tecan contributes to the overall success of the supply chain by ensuring timely delivery of quality products.
