How Photo Etching and Electroforming Apply to Metal Filtration

Posted by Kathleen Stillman on Jun 23, 2015 1:24:43 PM

Metal filtration media are produced in a number of ways: mechanical perforation (stamping or punching), woven wire, and sintered metal are the most common forms of fabrication.    Metal filters can be as prosaic as a kitchen colander or as esoteric as optical meshes filtering the far infrared and submillimeter electromagnetic spectrum. Precision metal screens are used to size particles for pharmaceuticals, pigments, and other powdered or granular products.
