Precision Micro has developed a precision spray plate to enable a new showerhead to generate an even, consistent and gentle ‘cloud’ of water.

With a simple flip action, the 360 showerhead can produce four sprays: Rain, Storm, Cloud and Burst.

The small spray plate was designed with no less than 900 0.148mm (+/-0.020mm) precision apertures, through which the water will flow smoothly.

It was determined that the geometry and shape of each aperture was critical in forming the right spray pattern.

Conventional etching techniques could not produce a spray pattern to satisfy the stringent requirements but Precision Micro’s development engineers devised a process to produce controlled, consistent apertures that generate a fine, even spray pattern with no directional bias.

The 360 showerhead is now in full production and the spray plates are being manufactured in volume using the same photo etching technology utilised during development and to produce the initial prototypes.

Precision Micro is one of the largest specialist components manufacturing operations in Europe, innovating, developing and utilizing a unique combination of manufacturing processes to meet the needs of customers worldwide.

The company has pioneered developments in chemical etching, electroforming and mechanical forming, achieving standards admired by the industry and appreciated by customers in automotive, communications, aerospace, electronics, medical, military and other ‘high-tech’ engineering industries.

More than Europe’s largest independent chemical etching operation, Precision Micro is generally considered to be the technology leader in its industry having developed new innovative process routes (LEEF and LEEP) that have reset benchmarks for precision, accuracy and repeatability.

We specialize in production technologies that provide economic, low risk, fast, flexible solutions for our customers, minimizing their up-front cost exposure through the use of digital tooling while providing the fastest ‘time to market’. Providing prototypes within hours and volume requirements in a timely and economical fashion, using the very same process technologies is what Precision Micro is all about.

Precision Micro… The name for Technology, Expertise, Innovation and Quality in precision components manufacture.
