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.

Our standards are industry leading

We operate in a world characterized by the tightest tolerances (hundredths of a millimetre), the finest structures, the thinnest metals, and the most complex geometries. We etch customized metal components to the tightest tolerances in large-scale industrial production Our mission is to reach the highest customer satisfaction through excellent quality. In order to guarantee this to our customers, our processes are constantly monitored and further developed through strict quality controls. We are certified according to ISO 9001, IATF 16949, and ISO 14001.
