Milling Process etches micro holes through metal.

Press Release Summary:



Using photo chemical milling process, Photo Sciences can etch holes as small as 2.5 µm completely through thin sheets of metal. Etched features on metal parts have smooth, well-defined edges, making them suited for deposition masks or as apertures for optical applications. Chemical milling process specifically allows sub micron tolerances and complex patterns, which can be combined with in house design, CAD, and photo tooling capabilities.

Photo Sciences Introduces New Proprietary Photo Chemical Milling Process To Etch Micro Holes Through Metal



The photo chemical milling process allows Photo Sciences to etch holes as small as 2.5um completely through thin sheets of metal. Photo Sciences uses it's photomask technology to create tight tolerance tooling, which is then used to image and etch features through the thin metal substrates. The etched features on Photo Sciences' metal parts have very smooth, well-defined edges, which is uncharacteristic for most chemically milled parts. These chemically machined metal parts have many uses and are well suited to be employed as deposition masks or as apertures for optical applications.

This chemical milling process specifically allows sub micron tolerances and complex patterns which can be combined with photo sciences in house design, CAD, and photo tooling capabilities.

This new chemical milling process also compliments the data and design provisions, mask pattern generation, inspection, measurement and repair services that Photo Sciences already offer to provide turnkey solutions.
