Reproduce your designs with perfect cuts and engravings on any metal plate, from 0.05 mm up to 2 mm thick
From an ancient technique ...
The art of engraving metals with corrosive substances has been known since 400 BC. It found widespread use in the Renaissance for the decoration of weapons and armor. From the first half of the nineteenth century it was developed to reproduce prints, and then taken up and strongly perfected from the 1940s for the creation of thin metal parts.
... up to digital control
The method consists in coating a suitably treated metal plate with a thin layer of photosensitive paint (photoresist), followed by a masking, exposure and development process. After this phase, the sheet is ready for etching in acid, protected on the areas that must not be affected and perfectly clean on the areas to be engraved or cut.
The use of advanced photographic and control processes, in the absence of heat and mechanical pressure during production, allow today to cut and engrave with incredible precision steel and copper alloys plates, from 0.05 up to 2.00 mm thick with minimum dimensional tolerances, without burrs and deformations.
It is possible to quickly reproduce very complex parts of a few mm up to one meter in length, in small quantities and with very low plant preparation costs.
