Our Photochemical Machining Lightspeed Lab team has decades of experience using this process to produce parts with complex geometries, multiple thicknesses, and tight tolerances at high volumes. Our deep understanding of the chemical etching process and custom-built equipment allow us to provide a manufacturing solution for even the most challenging parts. Widely recognized as the leaders in precision thin-metal stainless steel etching, our Lightspeed Lab experts have developed numerous patents around the photochemical machining process, including proprietary processes for producing blades and sharps.
The Photochemical Machining team has a long history of solving customer challenges, developing new processes, and implementing new technologies. We work with our customers to understand the critical needs of the product and then develop the right manufacturing process. Photochemical machining is a powerful manufacturing tool that is even more effective when used with other processing technologies. Combined with our onsite automation and precision tooling team, we can take the benefits of the chemical etching process and combine it with our other in-house capabilities of mechanical forming, CNC machining, and laser welding.
