Meshes & Filters


From cranial meshes to coffee filters, here at ACE we can etch all kinds of meshes & filters.
Metal meshes and filters are photochemically etched from steel or other metals, in thousands of different shapes and sizes.

Key Facts About Meshes & Filters


Thinner & More Complex

Manufactured in a single piece, photo etched meshes can be more complex, thinner and have greater strength, making them more robust during handling.

Zero Material Degradation

Whereas punch-perforated sheets are prone to distortion, photo etched mesh is burr and stress-free, with zero material degradation.

Different Patterns, No Extra Cost

Different patterns and arrays of holes can be produced at no extra cost and tighter tolerances can be achieved by the etching process.

248,000 holes in one filter

Advanced Chemical Etching (ACE) has produced meshes to filter toothpaste, which had a staggering 248,000 holes etched into the filter.

Benefits of the etching Process

  • Low set-up costs and fast lead times make etching a go-to process in batch sizes of one to multiple millions.

  • The tooling for etching is digital, low-cost and can be modified quickly.

  • No heat or force is used when etching so mechanical properties remain unaltered and parts are free from stresses and burrs.

  • As component features are etched at the same time so part/feature complexity is not an issue.
