Types of mesh


Welded mesh
With this mesh type, the weft and warp wires are mechanically spot-welded at the intersections. As a result, a great strength is obtained, while the mesh opening always remains exact. In many cases this mesh can be preferred, because a relatively large mesh opening can be obtained with a relatively thin wire. In most cases, this mesh is hot-dip galvanized or powder-coated / epoxy-coated after manufacture.
We produce spot-welded mesh with mesh openings of 5 mm – 250 mm, with wires that have a diameter of 0,5 mm – 5 mm.
Welded mesh

Plain weave

This is the simplest and most used method of weaving. A random wire, for example a warp wire, alternately passes the weft wires above and below.
We produce plain weave with mesh openings of 5 micron – 50 mm, with wires that have a diameter of 20 micron – 4 mm.
Plain weave

Twill weave
With this weaving method, for example, a weft wire alternately passes two warp wires above and below. This is done to make a fine type of mesh with a thicker wire than with plain weave, to obtain better formability for certain applications.
We produce twill-woven mesh with mesh openings of 5 micron – 50 mm, with wires that have a diameter of 20 micron – 4 mm.
Twill weave

Reversed twill weave
Because a metal twill fabric tends to skew, a so-called “turn” is made at a certain distance. The mesh therefore remains flat and does not skew.
We produce twill-woven mesh with mesh openings of 5 micron – 50 mm, with wires that have a diameter of 20 micron – 4 mm.
Reversed twill weave

Dutch weave (plain, twilled and reversed)
Dutch weave is a fabric in which the weft wires lie against each other. It is manufactured both in plain weave and in twilled weave. Dutch weave can be made from almost all ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, including bare iron, monel, stainless steel, bronze, copper, yellow copper, etc. It is difficult to calculate the size of the mesh openings (called “retention” with Dutch weave), because it depends on various factors (for example the pressure and the shape of the particles to be sieved). The retention of our Dutch weave is therefore usually determined experimentally.
We produce Dutch weave with mesh openings of 5 micron – 50 mm, with wires of 20 micron – 4 mm.
