How does the process work?
The chemical etching process works by printing a component design onto photoresist which is then laminated onto metal. The areas of photoresist which have not been printed are removed, exposing the metal, which is subsequently etched away. A chemical etching machine harnesses the corrosive reaction between the chemical and the material and heats the solution, spraying at high pressure. The chemical spray dissolves the unprotected metal areas to etch the material for a smooth finish.
