Optimal Total Cost of Ownership
With extensive experience, a wide international network and enthusiasm for the work that we do, Etchform provides innovative solutions with optimal Total Cost of Ownership during the entire lifecycle of your products.
Our core processes cover etching and electroforming, however, upon request, the entire supply chain can also be managed, for example for forming, heat and surface treatments and cleanroom packaging.
Our website provides a technology matrix in which the characteristics of different manufacturing technologies can be objectively compared with each other so that an initial decision on the most suitable process can be taken rationally.
The following advantages are inherent in our etching and electroforming processes:
- From an individual item to series production.
- Low one-off costs.
- Short processing times and flexibility in terms of product changes.
- A very broad range of materials to choose from, including metals on plastic substrates.
- No change in material properties.
No added internal stress or deformation. Hardness and brittleness remain intact.
- Completely burr-free products.
- Both the contour and the relief can be formed in the same process.
- Product complexity has hardly any effect on production costs.
In addition to “conventional” products such as shielding plates, deposition masks, gaskets, dosing rings, grids, cooling plates, heat sinks, contact springs, sieves, clamping plates and flow meters, there is also a wide range of highly specialised options, for example:
Surface structuring with precision of +/- 3 µm of a semiconductor wafer carrier bed to guarantee plate temperature.
Participation in DAISY2 (Daring Applications & Innovations in Sensor Systems), a collaborative project for an affordable AESA (active electronically scanned array) radar.
JUICE is the first large-class scientific mission (category L) in ESA’s “Cosmic Vision 2015–2025” programme. Etchform has been selected to carry out the feasibility study for the required solar connectors.
Our 10+ years’ experience with our process for etching titanium which we developed in-house and which is considerably safer than the conventional process, has been so successful that we have begun to make preparations for doubling our production capacity which should be available by the start of 2018.
