BENEFITS of chemical cutting :
- conservation of technical characteristics of the metal
- conservation of the surface
- absence of microcracks and burrs
- cutting precision
- no deformation
- reduced tooling cost

The main metals used for chemical cutting copper, brass, the nickel silver, copper beryllium, stainless steels, the Pinchbeck, nickel and many others in different shades.
Chemical cutting. What is it ?
The chemical is a method of machining by etching of metal plates which meet parts are protected by a photosensitive film.
This technique is very commonly used and applications are numerous both in electronic and mechanical on thin parts.
The advantages are many:
– No modification of the mechanical properties of the workpiece.
– Ease of machining of very thin parts of complex shapes, without deformation.
– The quality of resulting surface requires no subsequent finishing.
Main relevant metals :
After degreasing and washing, parts to achieve are protected by a photosensitive film.
The piece is then immersed in an acid bath, which regularly attacks unprotected parts (engraving)
A rinse completes the chemical machining phase.
