INTRODUCTION

Thank you for visiting the new Masteretch Web site. For over 21 years we have designed and manufactured etching equipment for companies around the world.  We recognize that for many potential customers buying our products will be their first attempt at including an etching process in their business. For this reason the service that you get from us includes a proposal that identifies your needs and specifies the
equipment required, we also include installation and on site training of the machine operators and maintenance staff. In addition to the equipment we manufacture we can also supply all of the ancillary items required to make your install a complete turnkey operation.

Our customers include sign manufacturers, engravers, chemical millers, universities, manufacturers of printed circuit boards and research labs. Typical products of our customers include signs, labels, nameplates, gobos, flexible dies, microwave circuits, printed circuit boards, control panels, elevator panels, patterned metal sheets etc.
A wide variety of materials are used including stainless steel, copper, bronze, aluminum, steel, brass, glass, dichroic coated glass and steel pad printing clichés.

In addition to the more regular uses of our machines we are often asked to produce a process for etching a particular material or to produce a particular product and working closely with the customer we can produce samples and design a process using our own etching facility.

Recent projects include a reel to reel etching system for a client in Russia, this was used to etch security labels on an aluminum foil. This project involved an installation in St Petersburg and training of the client's operators.

A system was supplied and installed for major Middle East sign manufacturer, based in Dubai, for etching stainless steel and brass signs

For a major supplier of lighting systems, based in Denmark, we designed, built and installed a system for etching dichroic coated color wheels and gobos used in their products.

For a major supplier of stainless steel gobos, based in Texas, we installed a system with fully automatic etch chemistry control to ensure a consistent quality of product in their high volume operation.

For one of the Major USA sign companies we built one of largest system that we have manufactured to date ( our largest is 78" wide ) for etching copper, and stainless steel, deep etched, plaques. This system had a maximum conveyor width of 48" and was capable of processing panels 8' x 4' and up to 1/2" thick

For a major supplier of ceramic transfers used in the manufacture of fine china in the UK we designed a system for etching 18" sq steel pad printing clichés . This project required that the etched plate was extremely accurate to ensure the repeatability of patterns.
It has been our pleasure to work with the above clients and the over 600 others around the world in 22 countries. We look forward to answering any questions or enquiries about etching that you may have. In the meantime please explore our site where you will see our standard machine ranges and information on etching techniques.
