Etch Tech have significant experience in the photo etching manufacture of masks. We offer evaporation mask plating in either Gold or Rhodium. By doing this we can extend the lifecycle of the mask, by protecting it from acidity in cleaning products.  
Using the chemical milling / photo etching process for the production of metal masks, as opposed to laser cutting for example, means that the cost driver is the size of the metal plate rather than the number of holes / apertures desired on the mask. With other production techniques, such as laser cutting, the cost-driver for the mask is the number of holes or apertures desired. Therefore, chemical milling / photo etching is the ideal and cost-effective choice for metal mask manufacture. 
Etch Tech can supply Photo Etched metal Masks plated in the following materials: 
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 Masks. Please contact our design engineers so discuss your requirements. 
For any volume of the production of Masks, the manufacturing technique of choice is Photo Etching, see below for an in-depth view of the strengths of the process: 
Benefits of the Photo Etching Process : 
Apertures on both sides as the etchant works on both sides of the metal 
Burr & Stress-free manufacturing method 
Custom parts – you design it – we make it!
