Etched Parts for Automotive Industry
Fotofab's precise photochemical etching process creates extremely tight tolerances and configurations for thin metal parts used in the automotive industry, including applications within electric vehicles.
We etch high-quality grade materials with a photographically prepared mask applied to the work surface.
The mask protects the underlying base metal while a tightly controlled chemistry removes metal to create exact-to-print parts in less time and at more affordable costs than other processes like CNC machining and stamping.
Fotofab products are made in the USA and distributed worldwide.
