Connectors & Contacts 

For the completion of electronic circuits, where a physical connection is required, Etch Tech can provide photo etched metal connectors and contacts. The etching process is perfect for bulk production of metal connector and contact components, with forming and plating available for the finishes of parts. This makes Etch Tech the single-source solution for photo etched connectors and contacts. 
 
Connectors and Contacts are used in many industries; aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, medical, military, telecoms, and test and measurement. Etch Tech have many years of experience working with contact and connector manufacturers and guarantee the supply of high quality development metal connector products.  
 
The modern tool room at Etch Tech Ltd provides universal in-house tooling to form components. This allows free hard tooling to be provided by Etch Tech, meaning that the customer is able to develop new products without the need for full scale production tooling, thereby reducing the commercial risk.  
 
Etch Tech are able to supply formed, heat treated and plated contacts and connectors with very short lead times, fully representative of the final, fully tooled, component. 
 
Etch Tech can supply Chemically Milled metal Connectors and Contacts in the following materials: 
 
Beryllium Copper 
Brass 
Phosphor Bronze 
Silver 
Steel 
Thickness range 0.00508mm (0.0002”) 0 1.5mm (0.060”) 
 
Design tolerances 
 
The Photo Etching process in place at Etch Tech Ltd is capable of etching extremely fine detail into metal. We have extensive experience working closely with customers to offer improved design tolerances on our Connectors and Contacts. Please contact our design engineers so discuss your requirements. 
 
For any volume of the production of electrical contacts and connectors, the manufacturing technique of choice is Chemical Milling, see below for an in-depth view of the strengths of the process:
