Rache's new laser cutting solution can cut metal foils as thin as .0005"
Rache Corp. has developed a proprietary laser cutting process that can cut virtually all thin, ferrous metal and non-ferrous metal foils that range between .0005” to .060” thickness (.005 to .040 inches for aluminum, brass, and copper).
Microwave stripline and EMI shielding are excellent candidates for Rache’s rapid prototyping service. Production quantities of final designs can be delivered only days after prototype approval. Cost for up to 5 laser-cut prototypes only $295, 48-hour turnaround on prototypes is guaranteed or they are free.
As an alternative to the more expensive and time consuming chemical etching process, the precision of the Rache laser process is accurate down to ±.001 and finished prototypes have no edge factor, roll off or edge deformation.
