Metal Plating Etched Parts

Tecomet Inc. works with outside vendors to offer metal plating options for chemically etched parts. Plating gives etched components properties that are not found in the base material. For example, gold plating is commonly used to make components more electrically conductive, while tin-lead plating is used to make components solderable. Tecomet Inc. can offer the addition of plating with almost any of the parts that being chemically machined.
