E-Fab has nearly 40 years of experience designing and delivering photo etched energy parts and components that meet the strictest specifications and withstand the most rigorous conditions and environments. The combination of our advanced technology, proven production processes, engineering expertise, and value-added technical services allows us to provide innovative solutions to complex jobs and unique design challenges for any sector in the energy industry. As an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, E-Fab capabilities range from engineering design support to precision CNC machining and photo etching to bonding and plating a fully finished energy part or component.

WHY CHOOSE E-FAB FOR YOUR ENERGY COMPONENTS?

E-Fab has extensive experience designing and fabricating precision metal photo etched energy parts and components for every sector of the energy industry, including the following:

  • Petroleum
  • Gas
  • Wind
  • Electrical power
  • Renewable energy industry
  • Solar
  • Nuclear

Some of our capabilities that benefit the energy industry include:

  • Engineering development and solutions. We have extensive experience taking projects from concept sketches to end product. Using creative ideation and sound engineering solutions, we offer innovative and advanced design concepts to help you realize your part or product, no matter the complexity.
  • Precise tolerances. Our precision machining capabilities allow us to achieve repeatable tight tolerances regardless of part design or complexity. Our photochemical etched energy parts and components must meet extremely tight geometry and tolerance requirements for applications that are subject to extremely high pressures and temperatures. General tolerances are held to +/-0.001 inch, but we have the capability to provide tolerance of +/-0.0005 inch, depending upon various included features, design elements, and material type.
  • Material selection. We have experience working with a wide range of metal alloys, including exotic alloys such as tungsten, to create precision-machined parts that meet the challenging requirements of the energy industry. We take a number of factors into consideration during the material recommendation and selection process, including part size, shape, and weight, required precision and tolerance, surface finish, secondary processes required, and number of parts made.
  • Material stability. Material stability is critical to material bonding. Stable bonds require using materials with a matching CTE so that they expand and contract in precisely the same way, which produces an effective bond and ensures part stability. For example, we recently developed a process that allowed us to bond a new silicon material with tin for a battery technology. We achieved this novel bonding solution while maintaining the structural strength of both materials.
  • Value-added secondary services for durable products. Secondary services, such as plating, bonding, and coating, are essential in delivering high-performing, reliable, and durable parts that our customers can depend upon in critical energy applications. For example, plating and coating our photo etched energy components for solar energy applications is essential to help the parts achieve the necessary high levels of corrosion, thermal, and wear resistance.
