Wire Mesh

General Introduction of Screen (Wire Mesh)

Screen, also called wire mesh, is a large regulatory category of wire fabric. It is made out of chemical fibers, silk, metal wire through certain weaving methods. Screen has wide applications in the industry, agriculture, science and technology . Up to the most advanced technology, high-tech industries, down to daily life and culture, wire mesh screen develops simultaneously with the national economy, and plays an important role in the peoples’ daily life. Wire mesh, or screen is mainly used in: Aviation, aerospace, printing, dyeing, electronics, mining, pharmaceutical, food, food processing and chemical industry. Mesh Screen has basically four functions: Screening, filter, Printing and strengthening. In addition, woven wire mesh can be used to make quarry screen in petroleum industry, as acid washing mesh in chemical and chemical fiber industry, and electro galvanizing industry, it is used as sifting screen for solid particles and powder, or as filter media for liquid and gas in the industries such as metallurgy, coal, petroleum, chemical, pharmacy, automobile, porcelain, glass and so on.

Wire Mesh Weave Patterns: Plain, Twill, Dutch
  • Normally we have four kinds of weaving in manufacturing:
  • Plain Weave, Twill Weave, Five Heddle Weave, Plain Dutch and Twill Dutch.
  • Plain Weave- The most commonly used weave. Each warp wire crosses alternately above and below each weft wire. Warp and weft wires generally have the same diameter.
  • Twill Weave - Each weft wire passes alternately over two, and then under two successive warp wires and each warp wire passes alternately over two and under two successive weft wires.
  • Dutch Weave - Has fewer and usually heavier diameter warp wires than shute wires. Only because of the crimping of shute wires over and under warp wires is there any open area. In contrast to square weave, the flow path is tortuous. The warp wire is usually larger and runs thelength of the cloth as woven. The shute wire is smaller and runs across the width of the cloth. Plain Dutch weaves can handle high flow rates with relatively low pressure drop.
  • Dutch Twill - It packs even more wires in a given area than Dutch plain woven wire cloth. Generally, Dutch Twill Woven Wire Cloth offers finer mesh counts and lower flow than other Dutch Woven Wire Cloth and can be made to filter particles as fine as 2 microns in diameter.
  • Dutch Plain - This kind of woven wire cloth has a coarser mesh and wire in the warp direction and a finer mesh and wire in the weft direction.Dutch Plain Woven Wire Cloth makes an ideal filter cloth with a very compact, firm mesh with great strength.
  • Five Heddle Weave – Wire cloth made of five-heddle weave has a smooth top surface and an open lower surface. It is ideal to withstand high mechanical strain and excellent filter performance.
Metal Wire Mesh in Architecture

We supply the widest range of precision ‘Architectural Systems’ to meet virtually all design and construction needs. Architectural Mesh for Architecture and Design combines functionality with high aesthetic features. A combination opens new perspectives to creative design and allow for fascinating architectural solutions. Due to their multiple functional and aesthetic qualities, the meshes are suitable for various applications in architecture and interior design.
