Precision Micro is the world’s largest photo etched speaker grilles manufacturer.
We supply millions of etched speaker grilles and interior trim components each year for marques including Mercedes C Class, Jaguar XJ, Rolls-Royce Wraith and many more.
Our photochemical etching service offers complex speaker grille mesh patterns and high definition surface engraving more economically than stamping and laser cutting.
From low cost development to high volume speaker grille production
We use digital tooling, which gives designers the freedom to experiment without incurring expensive set-up or modification charges.
With no hard tooling necessary, photo etched speaker grilles can be prototyped in a matter of hours.
A sound approach: 100% scratch and blemish-free speaker grilles
Once a design has been finalised, Precision Micro offers the world largest IATF-accredited speaker grilles etching capacity, delivering millions of high-precision, quality-assured perforated speaker grilles globally each year.
Why photo etch speaker grilles?
Perforated metal speaker grilles were once produced exclusively from thick, woven aluminium wire. Our photo etching service offers many aesthetic and functional advantages when manufacturing speaker grilles including:
- High durability
- Greater open area with finer apertures
- High-definition logos at no added cost
- Thinner, with superior rigidity
- Openings at any size, shape or position at no added cost
- Burr and stress-free to ±0.025mm accuracy
- 100% scratch and blemish-free
In addition to etching speaker grilles, we also supply a range of additional interior trim products.
Typically manufactured from 0.5mm-1mm thick aluminium, chemical etching can be used to surface engrave and emboss intricate, blemish-free tactile surfaces.
With etching, you pay by the sheet so there is no limit on design complexity.
As one of the few suppliers to offer sheets to 600mm x 1500mm in size, we guarantee an economical volume supply.
Unlike traditional pressed treadplates, we can incorporate sharp aperture and directional mesh patterns for backlighting.
We can also personalise treadplates with owners’ names or signatures as special, one-off production runs on request.
