Producing photo etched components involves a meticulous and controlled process that leverages the principles of chemical etching to achieve precision and intricacy. Here is an overview of the key steps involved in the production of photo etched components:
1.Receiving CAD data
2.Plotting the negative image
3.Creating the photo tool
4.Cutting metal sheets to size
5.Measuring and visually checking the metal sheets
6.updating our records for traceability
7.loading pre-cleaning line with metal sheets
8.chemical cleaning of metal sheets
9.transferring cleaned metal sheets to laminating
10.applying UV-sensitive photoresist on both sides
11.trimming and checking laminated sheets
12.preparing the film and metal sheet for UV exposure
13.exposing the metal sheet to UV light
14.Light blue areas are ready to be removed in the next process step.
15.updating records for traceability.
16.setting up developing line.
17.loading the developing line.
18.removing light blue areas of photoresist
21.etchant removing exposed metal
22.checking of etch results.
23.updating records for traceability.
24. removing the photoresist.
25.updating our records for traceability.
26.controlling dimensions with a range of cutting edge metrology equipment.
27.controlling cosmetic appearance with a range of visual checks.
28.packing parts to specifications.
29.updating our records for traceability.
Producing photo etched components requires precision, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of the materials and chemical processes involved. The result is a high-quality, intricately designed component that finds applications in various industries, from electronics to aerospace.
