Photofabrication has a wide experience in the manufacture of metal filters, meshes, screens and grids.
Key requirements include high accuracy, fine apertures, no “breaks” in the bars and no burrs. Due to the bespoke nature of each user’s requirement Photofabrication offer solutions customized to your individual requirements.
Filters, meshes, grids and screens are typically used in a variety of environments. One may be trying to restrict large matter from passing through a pipe or separating specific substances during an experiment. The key requirements remain, and are all available from Photofabrication. The chemical etching process offers high precision parts, which have a burr free finish combined with low cost tooling.
For bespoke metal filters, meshes, grids and screens the manufacturing technique of choice is Chemical Milling, let us illustrate this in more detail:
Main Benefits of Chemical Milling:
Photofabrication’s metal filters, meshes, grids and spacers are made from various grades of metal depending on the requirement. With thickness of metal ranging from 10 micron to 1mm. To find out more about the metals available click here.
