Poto etching is an economical and productive solution for the many varieties of thin gauge metal parts used for the ever-growing applications in wireless communications. From handsets and Bluetooth devices, to WiFi and Wimax, and cellular tower and satellite components, photo etching’s ability to create the complex geometries often required offers both speed and cost savings compared to alternative fabrication methods.


Copper alloys, including brass and beryllium copper, are most frequently used in current- or signal-carrying applications. A relatively few types of parts may be produced in carbon or galvanized steel. Many parts are electroplated with nickel under silver, gold or palladium.


Photo etching can produce a limitless variety of pole, compensator, multiplexer, antenna, ground plane, element, attenuator, modulator, scintillator, loop, patch and wiper designs.
