You probably see it all too often, a precision sheet metal part that requires a quick turn around. Either the metal is too thin or too hard, or the design is too complex. The part can not be burred, or distorted physically. Fabrication by traditional means would be impractical, if not impossible.

We have your solution: Photo Chemical Etching.

Photo Chemical Etching is

Precise holding tolerances as small as .0002" and using metal thicknesses from .0001"-.080"

Flexible from a single prototype to a million parts, we can fill your needs

Fast 2 weeks standard lead time. Or from a sketch on a napkin to full production in a few days.

Easy because the chemical milling process doesn't create burrs, you don't need to waste time or money removing them.

Kem-Mil offers you the freedom to make easy, quick and inexpensive tooling changes. The flexibility of etching is an enormous asset in prototyping as well as production. However, it must be remembered that Chemical Milling does have certain limitations such as the holes and lines in your part can't be smaller than the metal thickness. We do however have ways to get around many limitations.
