Need Intricate Designs On Thin Metal? Look No Further Than The Internet

eMachineShop, an online factory for customized parts, can now provide photo chemical etching. Used for microelectronics, medical and surgical devices, robots and optical decoders, these parts can be designed, fabricated and delivered via the Internet.

"From starting a design to placing an order, the entire process takes as little as 15 minutes. allows customers to test new ideas at low cost, then roll-out production in a few clicks," explains Jim Lewis, president of the Midland Park, N.J.-based company. He continues, "Until now, you had to buy and learn expensive and complex CAD software, make technical drawings, locate a machining facility, find a way to transmit the drawings to the shop, discuss the design with an accomplished machinist, sift through numerous price quotations, and eventually get your part -- often paying thousands of dollars more than necessary while adding weeks of delay."
