Interplex Etch Logic - Reel-to-Reel Chemical Etching
Interplex Etch Logic, an ISO/TS 16949-certified company, was established following the acquisition of the metal chemical etching division of Texas Instruments, considered by many to be the world's leading reel-to-reel chemical etcher. Located in Attleboro Massachusetts, Interplex Etch Logic has developed many new and innovative applications for automotive, telecom, connector, etched filters and oil filtration
and medical metal components
. The company's proprietary reel-to-reel technology creates etched precision metal components with very close tolerances and a high level of repeatability and consistency, outperforming competing technologies such as panel etching.
BENEFITS OF CONTINUOUS REEL-TO-REEL CHEMICAL ETCHING/PHOTO ETCHING:
- The increased repeatability and consistency of reel-to-reel chemical metal etching significantly reduces the total cost of quality, especially in high reliability metal applications.
- Customers can design burr-free, precision metal components with ultra fine pitches, intricate shapes and 3-D feature profiles using chemical or photo etching, which unavailable using traditional metal stamping processes.
- Chemically etched metal parts can be produced in a high volume environment using photo masks, which reduces tooling and production costs, while improving time to market.
Interplex Etch Logic Fact Sheet
- Reel-to-reel photo chemically etched parts can be presented to other automated manufacturing processes such as forming, plating, insert molding and assembly on a reel, further reducing total manufacturing costs.
