Qualitetch in a Nutshell

Our white paper document, P.C.M. an overview,  a  copy of  which can be downloaded  HERE

Photo chemical machining or P.C.M. is an engineering production technique used for the manufacture of burr free and stress free flat metal components, by selective chemical etching through a photographically produced artwork photo-tool mask. Our white paper document, P.C.M. an overview,  which can be downloaded  via the link at the top of this page,  has been created to briefly explain the fundamentals of the PCM process when applied to the manufacture of mechanical components. It is aimed at product designers and specifiers who would like to understand more about the science and technology of etching without having to delve too deeply into the chemistry. Qualitetch Components hope that the text achieves this aim, but should you require a more detailed explanation please contact our technical department. [row] [column md=”6″]
