Model 500 –“Controller" Power Unit

With approval from all the major aerospace corporations, Model 500 is by far 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 operate almost "operator free."

In addition to meeting process specifications, you can also measure and repeat depths for every part. A machine that doesn’t need operator skill, this powerful unit does the thinking for you. And–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.

Model 500–Electro-Chemical “Etching Kit”

Truly an electrochemical marking system, the Model 500 "Electro Etching Kit" comes with the Model 500 machine and all the 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.

corrosion free electrolytes

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.
Fortunately Electro-Chem Etch, Inc, developed special electrolytes that completely eliminate this problem. The HFE, CFE, and SCE-20 Electrolytes, developed by our company, produce a high contrast etch on ferrous metals and, in addition, 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.

Model 100–"Producer"  - Machine Shop Etching System

A cousin to Model 200, this small–yet mighty–parts marking machine has 100 watts of power and variable output voltages of up to 24 volts. Ideal for machine shops, Model 100 has plenty of power for most applications, and is capable of providing an etch of 010". Model 100 is often used for marking medical instruments and cutlery. If modest price and smaller power requirements are your needs, Model 100 is the unit for you.

As with Model 500 and 200, Model 100 is available in an electro etching "kit". The kit includes the unit and all the necessary accessories to begin.

“Personalizer Plus" Power Unit - Personal Etching System

Very popular in the cutlery and custom knife-making industry, the Personalizer Plus is an electro chemical etching machine ideal for low volume metal marking applications. It’s no wonder that 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

With the invention of the SF Foto Stencil Fabricator, Electro-Chem Etch allows manufacturers to save time and money by giving them the capability to create in-house stencils. A computer and laser printer are all you need 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!

So many great choices for all your metal parts marking needs. It’s no wonder so many top companies rely on Electro-Chem Etch for their electrochemical marking systems.
