Surprising Uses of Photo Etching

When it comes to photo etching, many different parts and components can be produced across a broad sector of industries. These highly functional and important parts make up items that we use and rely on every single day, but this process can also be used to produce something a little more artistic and creative, too.

Although just as beneficial and functional as their component counterparts, these manufactured metal parts are required to make a statement, create impact and utilise the ‘wow factor’ to its full extent.

Here at Qualitetch, we have the ability to create metal business cards, decorations and even jewellery should a customer request it thanks to our photo etching process. In exactly the same way that we would undertake parts and components, we would need initial designs that can be transferred to sheet metal, protected with photoresist and then put through the acid etching process to create your finished product.

The entire process is so accurate and precise that tiny details can be captured without putting additional stress on the sheet metal, especially when compared to items created using other processes. Intricate and delicate designs take the same amount of time as any other, which means this method of manufacturing is cost effective, with a good turnaround, and with a high-quality finish.

Making a Statement

If you’re looking to make a statement and impress potential customers, or simply portray a strong and bold front for your business, then invitations and business cards crafted from sheets of metal is an excellent way to stand out from the crowd.

Square, circular or even custom shapes based on your needs – stars, trees and more, the sky is the limit when it comes to choosing the shape. The photo etching process leaves metal as strong as ever with no unsightly burr marks, too, which means we can be flexible when it comes to your requirements.

High-Quality Products

Whether you need custom made festive decorations, wall plaques or personalised items for clients, customers or employees, you can rest assured that anything manufactured here at Qualitetch will be crafted from high-quality materials with the latest technology.

Whether you need 100 or 10,000 items made, we will ensure that each and every product is identical in terms of design and accuracy. Our professional team is on hand to ensure that designs are consistent and high in quality throughout.
