Photo Chemical Machining

Photo Chemical Machined Parts:
  • EMI/RFI shielding
  • Encoder wheels
  • Linear encoders
  • Laser mirrors
  • PCB shields & aluminum skins
  • Screened meshes

At PCM Products, we have total control of your parts from start to finish because all the processes are done in our 50,000 square foot facility. This enables us to work with your project from prototype to short runs or high volume production. Having the in-house capabilities allows for better lead times, very competitive part pricing and most importantly quality control.

From prototypes to high volume production, PCM Products provides tight tolerance photo chemical machining for most metals and alloys under 0.100" thick. Our photo chemical machining process is capable of etching simple or complex designs of multiple thicknesses.

Since the production dies are resistant to wear, each burr-free part is identical without work hardened edges. PCM Products’ photo chemical machining process does not affect the material’s internal structure or chemical properties, such as harness, grain structure & ductility.
