Photochemically etched meshes and screens can incorporate multiple geometries that are accurate and have greater integrity than woven meshes.

About Photo-Etched Screens

Mesh screens are a strong, durable, and long-lasting solution across many different industries, offering tight tolerances, intricate features, and dimensional stability. Using our photochemical machining process to produce screens results in higher-quality parts that clean easily, are more efficient, and burr- & stress-free compared to woven wire mesh, laser cut, or stamped screens.

Photochemically etched screens are commonly made from metals such as stainless steel, titanium, copper, and nickel. For more information on designing screens, please review Elcon’s Design Guidelines.
