Wire Mesh Weave Styles
Plain / Double
Reverse Plain Dutch
Plain/Double: The plain weave is the most commonly used and simplest to weave.
It is a standard type of weave for wire cloth resulting in square
openings with wire sizes the same in both directions. Each warp
wire passes alternately over and under fill wires at right angles,
Twill Square: Each warp and shute is woven alternately over two and under two
warp wires. This gives the appearance of parallel diagonal lines,
allowing it to be used with heavier wires with a particular mesh
count (that is possible with the plain weave wire cloth). This
ability allows the applications of this wire cloth to be used for
greater loads and finer filtration.
Twill Dutch: A filter cloth that offers higher strength than regular Dutch
weaves. It packs even more wires in a given area. Each shute wire
typically passes over two warp wires and under two, producing
square openings. Generally, this weave has finer mesh counts and
lower flow than regular Dutch weaves and can be made to filter
particles as fine as 2 microns in diameter.
Reverse Plain Dutch: A filter cloth in which the larger count of wires is found in the
warp and the smaller count in the shute, thus reversing the method
used in plain and twilled Dutch weaves. The warp wires have a
smaller diameter than the shute wires and touch each other, while
the heavier shute wires are woven as tightly together as possible.
Plain Dutch: Primarily used as a filter cloth. The openings slant diagonally
through the cloth and can not be seen by looking directly at the
cloth. This weave has a coarser mesh and wire in the shute
direction, giving a very compact, firm mesh with great strength.
Woven Wire Cloth Crimp Styles
Pre-crimping is typically found in coarser wire cloth or space
cloth specifications. The pre-crimp action enables both the warp
and shute wires to nest securely with each other restricting their
random movement and ensuring an accurate and consistent opening
size.This weaving technique adds strength and rigidity to the wire
cloth. Here are a few of the custom crimp styles that Marco offers:
Lock Crimp: Made to hold accurate openings. Each intersection is formed with
straight sections of fill wires woven within straight sections of
warp wires. Fill wires are woven in an alternating pattern, top and
Double Crimp: Square pattern wire cloth using warp and fill wires of equal size.
Warp wires pass over and under fill wires in an alternating pattern
at adjacent intersections.
Intercrimp: Crimped warp wires filled at every other crimp with fill wires.
Provides superior rigidity and greater stability. Popular for
screens and architectural uses.
Flat Top: All crimping is offset to one side producing a single plan on the
top which allows for the smooth flow of materials over the surface.
