Shimifrez Introduces Ultra Micro Etched and Electroformed Metal Parts

Shimifrez Inc. ( a Canadian leader in fabricating precision photo chemically etched and electroformed metal components, to provide ultra micro machining services to OEM, Universities and research institutions globally.

Photochemical etching is a cost effective method for producing complex flat metal parts for prototyping and quantity production. Intricate metal fabrication with no dies and presses will save your time and money. Photo Chemical Etching has eliminated has enabled a manufacturing process accurately and much faster turn-around with No deformation and burrs. “We recognized that there’s a major market gap, for accurate, flexible and cost effective precision photo chemical etching services,” says Shimifrez’s president Hassan Nojoumi.

The fastest response time and lowest photo tooling costs make photo chemical machining (photo-etching) and electroforming ideal for both prototyping and medium / large production quantities. Instead of stamping, or laser cutting Photo Etching produces highly accurate and identical components for small and large batches.

With over 25 of experience in the field of micro metal fabrication, Shimifrez's activities in photo chemical etching and electro-forming is far reaching and can include creating critical components for satellites and instrumentation's to micro meshes/grids, lead rames, ultra micro metal parts (ie washers, fingers), gimbal springs, fluidic channels, reticles, damper shims, targets, RFI/EMI/ESD board level shielding, heat sinks, BPP's for fuel cell applications to consumer products such as speaker grills. Components can be manufactured in stainless steels, brass, nickel alloys, beryllium copper, phosphorous bronze, kovar, inconel, DCB substrates and aluminum alloys to name a few. Shimifrez offers a rapid-response service to deliver micro components to several precision industries such as the aerospace/satellite, automotive, telecommunications, micro- electronics and defense sectors. The demand now exists for relatively thin between 0.0005” (0.01mm) to 0.030” (0.8mm), complex design and intricate metal components at an economical price. Shimifrez is capable of making parts from 0.02X0.02” (2X2mm) and feature size of less than 30 microns.

Services & Capabilities. Shimifrez Inc. facility is located at 55 Administration Road, Unit 30, in Concord, Ontario, just north of Toronto, Canada.

Whether you are in the aerospace industry or medical device manufacturer or micro-electronics or telecommunications, we have the capabilities to help. For more information of how Shimifrez can help you enhance your product line please call 905-695-6898 or email or visit (
