Mastercut can manufacture your precision thin metal parts from materials including stainless steel, brass, copper, beryllium copper, mild steel and spring steel. We do this by employing a variety of methods including Photo Chemical Etching (PCM), YAG laser, Co2 laser and fibre laser. We can achieve almost any precision you might require in the shape, form and look of your part.

Typically these parts include...

  • Fine Mesh and Filters
  • Decorative Pieces including jewellery and fine art
  • Encoder Wheels
  • Electronic Components including shielding and antennae
