sieves and meshes

This specialised equipment is designed to accurately separate particles based on size, ensuring fine detail and to avoid cross-contamination or poor quality of product. The use of high precision sieves and meshes significantly improves product quality and consistency, leading to increased efficiency in manufacturing processes and other applications.

how does chemical etching fit?

High precision sieves and meshes are essential tools in various industries such as life sciences, food and beverage, automotive and industrial printing. The growing requirement for finer and finer apertures with faster and faster output demands analysis and consideration of droplet /particle size, whether gases, liquids, sugars, starches etc. It is necessary to ensure:

  • precise, small holes
  • perfect aperture definition to prevent clogging
  • conical holes to enable self-release
  • flexible hole configuration, e.g. elliptical, hexagonal, circular
  • burr-free to avoid filtration issues and clogging

Tecan’s chemical etching process allows aperture profiles of components to be easily and accurately optimised – not only in size but also shape – to ensure efficient throughput of the material being processed.

One of the key advantages of the high precision sieves and meshes we produce is their ability to provide consistent and reliable results. By using these tools, manufacturers can achieve precise particle size distribution, which is crucial for ensuring product quality and meeting industry standards. Additionally, they are designed to be durable and long-lasting, making them a cost-effective investment for businesses looking to improve their production processes.


Sieves and meshes play a vital role in various industries by ensuring accurate particle separation and improving product quality. Their ability to provide consistent results and durability make them a valuable asset for manufacturers looking to enhance their manufacturing processes and applications.
