Mesh Process

Once a wire mesh has been knitted, we begin transforming it into the form required. This process – involving crafting and manipulation of the mesh – is crucial to producing the final product, as ordered by our customers.

There are a variety of post-knitting processes which can be used depending upon the final form, structure, property and design requirements.

These include:

  • Coiling – a method for packing milled mesh in flat spirals, suitable for shipping.
  • Folding & Layering – used for building up pads of knitted mesh used in applications like kitchen extraction units or flashback guards.
  • Crimping – passing a continuous sock of knitted mesh between crimp rollers to make it particularly suited to anti-vibration products.
  • Pressing – mesh is placed in a steel die and compressed until it reaches the right size and density to create high-precision mesh rings and gaskets.
  • Spiralling & MillingWhen a continuous length of compressed mesh is required, spiralled mesh is placed inside a separate mesh sleeve, then drawn through a rolling mill
