World leader in chemical etching
As the demand for smaller electronic devices increase, so does the need for precision connectors and contacts. Our technology, chemical etching efficiencies and expertise ensure the manufacture of exceptionally accurate pieces to be reliably replicated within very short lead-times.
Photofab have worked closely with leading OEM’s for many years and understand the importance of quality, precision and consistent manufacture of electrical contacts and connectors. Supplying key industries like telecoms, medical, electronics, automotive and aerospace.
Photofab can supply formed, heat treated and plated electrical contacts and connectors. We have an extensive stock of universal tooling to form components saving on any additional hard tooling costs. This allows new product development at relatively low-cost and very little commercial risk.
For prototype, low & high-volume electrical contacts and connectors with optimum precision, short lead-times and cost-effective production, trust Photofab to deliver.
Photofab can manufacture in various materials suitable for contacts, Beryllium Copper, Phosphor Bronze, Carbon Spring Steel, Stainless Steel, Mild Steel and many more.
We are world leaders in the development of photochemical technology to produce intricately shaped components. We have produced over 70,000 different components. We are known and trusted by many leading OEM’s, many of which retain long-term partnerships.
In addition, Photofab offer a full outsourcing manufacturing service, from design to assembly, producing washers to complex formed springs and screening cans. We can also offer formed, heat treated, and plated parts as required.

Photofab have for many years worked closely with connector manufacturers to supply high quality development metal connectors. Photofab can supply formed, heat treated and plated contacts and connectors that will represent the final fully tooled product in very short lead times.Read More
Photofab has a wide experience in the manufacture of metal filters, meshes, screens and grids. Key requirements include high accuracy, fine apertures, no “breaks” in the bars and no burrs. Due to the bespoke nature of each user’s requirement Photofab offer solutions customized to your individual requirements.Read More
Photofab can chemically etch bi-polar plates used in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Fuel cell development has moved forward a long way in the past few years, Photofab work with some of the industries key minds on trialing new designs for separator plates (conductive plates within a fuel cell stack acting as an anode for one fuel cell and …Read More
Photofab supply stacked and bonded metal laminations to high accuracy and consistency. The use of a specialised resist provides both insulating properties within the stack as well as bonding capabilities. The etching process provides a burr free finish, ideal to eliminate problems during winding. The full process is available, including post stacking services such as grinding where required.Read More
Photofabrication supply RFI Shielding solutions using various intelligent design techniques. These can be applied to a variety of metals, most popular being Nickel Silver (maintains solderability with no post coating required), or traditionally either a brass or mild steel coated with either tin or nickel plating (depending on your requirements). The full process is available, including forming, plating, soldering and …Read More
World leading manufacturers of springs since 1971 Strip or flat springs come in many different designs, sizes and materials Beryllium Copper, Phosphor Bronze, Carbon Spring Steel and Stainless Steel and are used in many different industries: electronics, military, automotive, aircraft, space, medical, telecoms and shipping. Complex designs from prototype through to production quantities can be produced economically and on short …Read More
Forming – the bending and shaping of parts. Forming, metal forming, is the metalworking process of fashioning metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation; the workpiece is reshaped without adding or removing material, and its mass remains unchanged.Forming (metalworking) – Wikipedia In addition to manufacturing your parts we are able to offer a variety of forming solutions to suit your …Read More
