Electro Discharge Machining (Edm) vs Chemical Etching

Electrical Discharge Machining, also known as EDM Manufacturing, spark machining, burning, die sinking, wire burning, or wire erosion, is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained by removing materials with electrical discharges (sparks). Lead Time Lead time is a crucial factor in any manufacturing process, as it can greatly affect the overall project […]

when should you use chemical etching?

Chemical Etching is an efficient manufacturing process which allows you to create high-precision metal parts in complex shapes and patterns. More often than not, especially in industrial scale production, Chemical Etching is the most cost-effective as well. This is the conclusion we reached after comparing Chemical Etching to other metal fabrication technologies such as Stamping,¬†Laser […]

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 […]

chemical etching vs. water jetting

Water jetting is an industrial manufacturing process that uses a high pressure jet of water focused into a beam by a nozzle to cut a wide variety of materials. It can cut various materials including hard materials such as metal or granite or softer materials such as wood or rubber. Here we look at the […]

chemical etching vs. cnc machining

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining refers to computer controlled manufacturing process such as milling, grinding, and turning. Compared to CNC Machining, Chemical Etching is more precise with less cost, shorter lead time, more design flexibility, and no need for deburring. It is an optimal choice for precision metal part manufacturing, regardless of prototyping or industrial […]
