Tech-Etch specializes in the photo chemical etching of titanium. Because of its low weight, strength and corrosion resistance, titanium is used in everything from jet engines to eyeglass frames. Because titanium is inert and completely biocompatible, it is also used in many medical implantation applications such as maxillofacial and craniofacial reconstruction plates, as well as anode and cathode battery current collectors and telemetry antennas found in implanted medical devices.
Tech-Etch is a leader in the supply of component parts made from titanium and other specialty materials such as nitinol, niobium, Elgiloy, tungsten and polyimide to the medical device marketplace. Parts range in thickness from .0005” and up.
While providing quick turnaround and low tooling costs, photo etching produces burr-free parts with intricate and complex shapes. Designs can be proved in preproduction quantities without having to commit to expensive tooling. Laminating, plating, heat treating, and assembly are available in house.
