We use digital tooling, which gives designers the freedom to experiment without incurring expensive set-up or modification charges.
With no hard tooling necessary, interior trim products can make the transition from prototype to production in a matter of hours.
A sound approach: 100% scratch and blemish-free speaker grilles
Photo-etched speaker grilles
Metal mesh speaker grilles were once produced exclusively from thick, woven aluminium wire. Our photo etching process 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
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.
