Custom Screens, Strainers and Filters for Food Processing, Industrial and Medical Applications

January 15, 2010



PHOTOFABRICATION ENGINEERING, INC. (PEI), Milford, MA (January 15, 2010) is introducing a new line of custom screens, strainers and filters targeted at the manufacturers and users of food processing equipment as well as a wide variety of industrial uses. These products can be almost any length with a width of up to 30 in. (76.2 cm).

Fabricated from virtually any metal or alloy—including FDA-approved materials such as 316 stainless steel and pure nickel--these screens, strainers and filters meet the most stringent quality requirements for food, medical and industrial applications. These products are available in average thicknesses from 0.5 mil (0.0127 mm) to 100 mil (2.54 mm), with features as small as 4 mil (0.10 mm) on 0.010 in. (0.254 mm) centers. PEI excels in producing filters, screens and strainers in high-density patterns with up to 90% coverage. They can be fabricated in myriad shapes and sizes with round or hexagonal holes, ovals and slots.

PEI manufactures these products using the photo chemical machining process, which eliminates the burrs, stresses and deformation found in stamped parts. Because PEI uses photo tooling and does everything in-house (photo tool-making, plating, forming etc.), they offer quick turnaround at extremely competitive prices. Typical delivery of production orders is three weeks from receipt of order and customer prints.

PEI’s manufacturing process has achieved ISO-9002 certification, and also complies with MIL-I-45208 standards. We can supply prototypes that meet customer specifications, or our Custom Engineering Department can help customers design products that meet their specific requirements. Applications for PEI’s new line of screens, strainers and filters include electrical appliances, commercial electronics, and medical and biomedical equipment.
