About Us

About Us

Advanced Metal Etching was founded in 1993 by Scott Seniff
and Blake Geer with the goal of providing exceptional quality
and service in precision photochemical machining. We have
grown with technology, in expertise, and experience with a
broad range of product applications, but the company’s
original goal remains the same, to provide attentive detail to
projects, customer service and to meet deadline expectations.
Our philosophy has always been to listen to our customers'
needs and then provide efficient and effective solutions.

Quick Turnaround

Emerging technological advances have created a higher
consumer demand, which in turn forces OEMs to get products
out to market faster. With that in mind, we developed quicker
quoting and order tracking systems to reduce product cycle
time. An increase in prototyping was behind the motivation in
the development of our Parts Now program; a system
developed to move prototype parts out the door within 24

Technical Assistance

Through the years we have encountered all types of design
challenges and techniques as it pertains to different part
applications. Complex parts are our specialty. Our tooling
engineers will offer assistance with material selection and how
to achieve the lowest tolerances within our capabilities.

Secondary Services

An increase of OEMs in the electronics and R/F microwave
industries requesting EMI and RFI shielding components
prompted us to create an in-house tin-plating line used with
copper, nickel-silver and stainless steel alloys to protect
against corrosion and preserve solderability.


Our United States Midwest location near major industrial areas
enables us to keep metals in stock and expedite delivery to
customer locations faster.
