Parylene is the ultimate protective coating, and is used for customers that require protection of equipment, components, and surfaces in a range of end-use applications. Parylene is a hydrophobic polymer which is lightweight and can be applied as an extremely thin homogeneous film. This film is absolutely smooth and totally transparent, and does…
In this Q&A, Dr. Angel Lopez, director of business development at micrometal GmbH, one of Europe’s leading PCE etching specialists, discusses what considerations design engineers need to bear in mind when working with PCE.
Photochemical etching is the perfect choice for metal component production in the quickly changing alternative powertrain supply chain.
Plate heat exchangers are found in numerous industrial applications, and essentially use metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. Their use is burgeoning as they out-perform conventional heat exchangers (often a coiled pipe containing one fluid that passes through a chamber containing another fluid) as the fluids being cooled are in…
Photochemical etching is a metal processing technology that produces stress-free, flat components by selective etching through a photo-resist mask. It is especially well suited to the manufacturing of precision parts.
Leading European photochemical etching specialist micrometal GmbH (incorporating HP Etch and Etchform) has perfected using the PCE process for the production of ultraprecise metal parts and components.
Micrometal GmbH, an expert at the photochemical etching process, developed a white paper, “Unlocking the True Potential of Precision Metal Fabrication," which analyzes PCE.
