Chemcut was founded in 1956 as a manufacturer of precision equipment for printed circuit board production. One year later, the company sold its first Chemcut™ spray etching machine. Chemcut etchers were at the forefront of technology, as mass produced printed circuits quickly replaced handmade circuit boards. Today, we continue to be the world’s leading developer and supplier of wet processing equipment for photo chemical milling of thin metal parts, chemical engraving of signs and nameplates, etching printed circuit boards, metal finishing, specialized glass processing for flat panel and touch-screen displays, photovoltaic (solar) panel manufacturing, and non-traditional processing of semiconductor products. Chemcut’s State College, PA facility contains a customer evaluation laboratory, manufacturing and testing facilities, as well as the sales, engineering, and office administration personnel.
