Mylar Imaging & Photo Tooling

High quality at a low price

What is Mylar Imaging?

Mylar™ Imaging, also called photo plotting, consists of precision black markings on the surface of a photographic film made of a clear plastic base material. These markings are produced by a photoplotter that uses a series of precision-guided laser beams to expose the film. The patterns originate from CAD drawings, so that each film is custom-made. Completed plots can be as small as 7 microns for a line, and 10 microns for flash pads. Thin Metal Parts, a Colorado metal parts manufacturing company, uses Mylar Imaging technologies and Photo Tooling as part of our manufacturing services.
