Model 500 –“Controller" Power Unit

With approval from all the major aerospace corporations, Model 500 is our most popular electrochemical etching unit.

With variable output voltages of 0-40, low impedance, and 500 watts of power, this powerful machine allows users to easily achieve etch depths up to 0.010" and controlled to within +/-0.0005". Built-in SCR phase control circuitry, and integral electronic timer and pulser, allows the machine to function almost "operator free."


Model 500 –“Controller" Power Unit (cont'd)

In addition to meeting process specifications, you can also measure and repeat depths for every part. A machine that doesn’t require operator skill, this powerful unit does the thinking for you. The foot switch or remote control makes it truly a "hands-free" operation. If precise etch depth is a requirement, Model 500 is the unit for you.

The Model 500 may be purchased on its own or as a complete etching kit with all necessary accessories to begin the marking process.

Model 200–“Supervisor” Power Unit

With the same variable output voltages of 0-40, low impedance, and 500 watts of power, this powerful machine is the manually operated version of the Model 500.

Still delivering the same high quality permanent mark, this cost effective metal marking machine is ideal for applications where an internal timer and pulser are not needed. If a high-quality unit with a cost effective price is your requirement, Model 200 is the unit for you.

Model 200 is also available in an electrochemical marking system "kit". The kit includes the machine and all the necessary accessories to begin.

“Personalizer" and “Personalizer Plus" Power Units–Personal Etching System

Very popular in the cutlery and custom knife-making industry, our Personalizer Plus is an electro chemical etching machine ideal for low volume metal marking applications. Our most affordable marking system, great for hobbyists–tens of thousands of these units have been sold to knife makers, gunsmiths, and medical instrument manufacturers worldwide. With 72 watts of power and variable output voltages of O-20, this popular model produces high contrast markings in just a few seconds. If medium power–with reliability and high performance- all in a very affordable package, are your requirements, the Personalizer Plus is the perfect unit for you.

Available from your local knife-maker supplies distributor, the Personalizer Plus is sold as a complete kit containing all the necessary supplies and accessories.

SF 200–SF Foto Stencil Fabricator- In-House Stencils

Our innovative SF Foto Stencil Fabricator enables manufacturers to save time and money by creating custom photo stencils in-house . A computer and laser printer are that's needed to create a high quality, engraving stencil for metal from text, graphics, or logos–in only a few minutes.

With Electro Chem Etch, you can choose to make your own etching stencils–or have us do it for you. Many of our satisfied customers who have the SF 200 continue to use our services for some of their products. Either way, it’s wonderful to have a choice!



Corrosion Free Etching Electrolytes

Corrosion of ferrous metals can be a problem after electro-chemical etching if the metal part is not adequately neutralized and cleaned after the process.

Electro-Chem Etch, Inc, spent years developing special non-corrosive etching electrolytes to ensure the only marks you leave on your products are the ones you intend. Our Exclusive HFE, CFE, and SCE-20 produce a high contrast etch on ferrous metals and eliminate the need for neutralizing and cleaning.

Parts simply need to be wiped dry after etching and will never rust when using these electrolytes, which are being used by many aerospace companies including Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell, Parker Hannifin, and others.

Electro-Chem Etch is the standard in metal marking and a trusted partner for so many industry-leading companies for their electrochemical marking systems.
