Photochemical Machining (PCM) is a high quality, fast turn-around, economical way of manufacturing precision, detailed metal parts such as screens, shields, grids, washers RFI/EMI Shielding, Filters, Lead Frames, Encoder Disks, Buss Bar, Flat Springs, Heat Sinks, Drive Bands, Electrical Contacts, Ribbon Shields, Laminates, Backplates, EMP grids, Signage, Plaques.

The Photo Chemical Machining process has 9 essential steps to achieve simple or complex thin-metal components of one to one million parts. This is a very economical option for research and development or prototype phase of a project when quick turnaround is vital. Our PCM process is used to etch through metal thicknesses between .0005″ to .060″ and between .060″ to .250″ for depth etching on metal only.
