Photochemical machining

 

Photochemical machining is the technology used to obtain very precise machined or engraved metal parts. Photochemical machining has considerable advantages over other methods used in the market, such as mechanical milling, stamping, electroerosion or laser cutting.

Advantages:

Almost every type of metal can be machined
No burrs
High precision
No alterations in the chemical and physical properties of the metal
Unlimited design forms
The process can be used for metal sheets from 0.01mm to 2mm thickness
Production of loose parts (attache free)
The production of tools is fast and inexpensive
3 to 4 weeks delivery time for prototypes or new orders; in case of emergency, the delivery time can be within a week.

 

Technical specifications:

Thickness of the material:
0.01 mm - 2 mm
Tolerance: Depending on the thickness of the material, generally
+/- 10 - 20% of the thickness
Smallest opening:
≥ 0.1 mm  ⇒ ∅ = 1 - 1.5 Thickness
≤ 0.1 mm  ⇒ ∅ = 0.8-1.5 Thickness 
Minimal interior radius: 50% of the thickness of the material 
External radius: right angle
