High Tech Profil
micrometal was founded in 2006 in Müllheim (Baden), Germany. Unique, high-precision etching technology was available from the start by taking over the high-tech line from Buckbee Mears Europe GmbH. As a result, micrometal offers expertise in microsystems technology that has grown over decades, and which is the foundation for its global success.
micrometal is a 100% subsidiary of Wickeder Westfalenstahl GmbH, a leading manufacturer of clad materials.
Unique in the World: reel-to-reel etching
The know-how developed by micrometal means the creation of a photo-chemical etching process that differs considerably from other etching processes. The combination of a high-precision photo-chemical lithography process with a continuous reel-to-reel inline production technology is unique in the world. The interlinked inline production technology adds greater process stability to the inherent advantages of photo-chemical etching, thus optimising efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
The finest structures and contours are machined out of thin metal sheet. The production process is characterised by excellent reproducibility and the attainment of the narrowest tolerances. This unique reel-to-reel etching process guarantees individual customer solutions on an industrial scale.
