Weaving Methods of Stainless Steel Wire Mesh


The weaving is determined according to our customers' specific requirements, such as the material, the wire diameter, the size of the mesh , width and length. Usually the weaving methods include plain weave, dutch weave, twilled weave and twilled dutch weave.


Plain Weave

The Plain Weave is the most commonly used and simplest wire cloth weave. Each warp wire (wire running-parallel to length of cloth) passes alternately over and under the wires running traversely through the cloth at 90 degree angles. It has an extremely wide range of applications.

Stainless steel plain weave wire mesh offers high filtering efficiency, low pressure loss, constant mesh opening, good dimensional stability, high open surface area and good fireproof property.


Dutch Weave

Stainless steel dutch weaving is our most important product. We have more than 10 wire mesh weaving machines to produce stainless steel woven wire mesh.

The dutch weave is produced by the use of coarse mesh in the warp and a fine mesh with relatively smaller wire in the fill. This weave results in greater strength with very fine openings and is primarily used as a filter cloth. The shape and position of the openings aid particle retention.


Twilled Weave

The Twilled Weave is produced by passing each fill wire alternately over and under two warp wires. The pattern is staggered on successive warp wires, giving the appearance of parallel diagonal lines. This weave allows the use of proportionately heavier wires in a particular mesh count than is possible in plain weave.

Stainless steel twill wire mesh is woven as follows. Each warp wire and weft wire passes over and under the two nearby wires successively in both the warp and weft directions. This over and under movement is shifted one wire with each pass of the shuttle.


Twilled Dutch Weave
The Twilled Dutch Weave is produced by a combination of the features of the Dutch Weave and the Twilled Weave. Fill wires are passed alternately over and under two warp wires forming a fine mesh in one direction and a coarse mesh in the other. This type of weave is capable of supporting greater loads than the Dutch Weave, with finer openings than the Twilled Weave.

Twilled Dutch Weave wire mesh offers higher strength than regular dutch woven wire cloth. It packs even more wires in a given area than dutch plain woven wire cloth. Generally, twilled dutch weave wire mesh 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.
