Coiling, Folding & Layering Knitted Wire Mesh

WireKnitting has the capability to process knitted Wire mesh such that it is suitable for coiling, folding, and layering either for delivery to the customer, or for product integration.

For customers who require knitted Wire mesh in extended lengths, or who wish to perform their own post-knit processing, knitted Wire mesh can be coiled for ease of storage, distribution, and application.

Another simple post-knit processing is folding & layering of knitted mesh. This technique is used when 'pads' of material are required, such as in kitchen extraction units or grease filters.

Layers of knitted mesh are placed one on top of another and then encapsulated, either with support grids or within a channel frame and weld-mesh arrangement.

Crimping / Corrugations of Knitted Wire Mesh

WireKnitting has the capability to process knitted Wire mesh by passing it through crimp rollers to increase the effective knitted sock height.

A single length of knitted Wire mesh is feed between a pair of crimp rollers. As the mesh is crimped it is plastically deformed to a new corrugated profile (Corrugations/Crimping Machines see diagram on the left).

By changing the gap between the crimp rollers, and the crimp angle across the rollers, Rishikesh are able to produce a wide variety of crimped Wire mesh profiles.

This crimping technique is most suited to metal Wires and filaments as the crimp shape can only be maintained if platic deformation of the material is allowed to take place.

Die-Pressing Knitted Wire Mesh / Knitted Metal / Compressed Knitted Metal

WireKnitting has the capability to process knitted Wire mesh by die-pressing mesh into a wide variety of product forms, densities and permeabilities for a diverse range of standard and custom-designed products.

Fixed lengths of knitted Wire mesh are placed into a die cavity, and the top punch lowered to compress the mesh to a set pressure.

The diagram on the right shows a cross-section of a simple cylinder of mesh being compressed. By changing the profile of the die punches more complex shapes can be made.

Spiralling, Milling & Funnelling Knitted Wire Mesh

If there is a requirement for a continuous single length of compressed knitted Wire mesh, with a fixed cross-sectional area and constant mesh density, the processing technique that is used is spiralling and milling and funneling.

The process consists of three main steps:

      1. The process consists of three main steps:
      2. This is then inserted into a second knitted Wire sock
      3. This combined sock is then passed through a rolling mill to compress and shape to the required state

By changing the type of knitted Wire mesh used, and by adjusting the form and gap of the rollers, it is possible to produce a wide variety of milled mesh types.
