Weaving Types

According to the holes types and weaving ways, there are mainly five ways of weaving for stainless steel wire mesh, which are: Plain Weave, Twill Weave, Dutch Plain Weave, Dutch Twill Weave, Reverse 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 traversal through the cloth (fill or shoot wires) at 90 degree angles.  It has an extremely wide range of applications.

Twill Weave

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 (number of openings per lineal inch) than is possible in plain weave.  This cloth has a wide application capable of supporting greater loads and finer filtration.

Dutch-Plain Weave / Plain-Dutch Weave

Similar interlacing as in Plain Weave, except that the warp wires are larger diameter than the chute wires.  The lighter chute wires are driven up close thus forming a dense filtering medium.  This weave displays a tapered or wedge-shaped opening.

Dutch-Twill Weave / Twill-Dutch Weave

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 (mesh wire, woven wire mesh, wire mesh basket) in the other.  This type of weave is capable of supporting greater loads than the Dutch Weave, with finer openings than the Twilled Weave.  It is used in applications where the filtering of heavy material is necessary.

Reverse Dutch Weave

Normally woven as a plain weave, but in reverse manner to Plain Dutch Weave.  The weft wires are of greater diameter than the warp wires, and consequently the warp mesh count is greater than the weft mesh count.  This woven wire cloth is extremely strong, easily cleaned and has a high flow rate.
