Research Topics

By investing in engineering research and development programs, KnitMesh Technologies is able to continuously improve its products and services, and provide higher quality and value goods to its customers.

Due to intellectual property considerations KnitMesh Technologies is not able to fully disclose its research activites, however whenever possible we like to share with others what we’re doing. The sections below link to pages which briefly outline KnitMesh research projects:

Neural Network Modelling of Compressed Knitted Wire Mesh

In an attempt to predict the performance characteristics of a compressed knitted mesh component before it is made, and hence reduce development times, KnitMesh are developing a theoretical system based on neural networking.

This project is being undertaken as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the University of Liverpool Department of Engineering.

Development Tools at KnitMesh Technologies

Continued investment in knitted wire mesh engineering research and development programs ensures KnitMesh Technologies is able to improve its products and services, and provide high quality and value goods to its customers.

To support the various on-going research programs, and to assist with new product development plans and quality control systems, KnitMesh Technologies has gathered a range of tools to support this work.

Compression & Tensile Testing

KnitMesh has a suite of compression and tensile testing equipment which is used to measure and assess the elastic and plastic deformation characteristics of knitted wire mesh and components made thereof.

For more information visit the Compression & Tensile Testing page.

Heat & vibration testing

As many of KnitMesh’s products are applied in the automotive industry, KnitMesh has a dedicated test cell for the analysis of component behaviour when exposed to vibrating high-temperature conditions.
