3,000 holes per second

Electron beam drilling is ideally suited for small hole diameters large numbers of holes and deep drilling.

The high energy density of the electrons melts sheets or cylindrical workpieces at a defined location without affecting the surrounding areas.

And this process is just as fast as it is precise: Micro drilling systems from pro-beam produce up to 3,000 holes per second. They are suitable for all metallic materials with a thickness of up to 6 mm, including titanium and other difficult-to-process metals. The hole diameter ranges from 0.06 to 1.1 mm and shapes from cylindrical to conical. These advantages make electron beam drilling an efficient and cost-effective solution for the manufacture of industrial filters and screens.

Additional benefits: The use of electron beam drilling ensures high product durability. Drilled filters are significantly more durable than wire mesh or woven fabric products.
