How is Wire Mesh Made?

Wire Mesh Making Process / Wire Mesh Manufacturing Process

The intersecting wires are typically joined together by welding or weaving – two of the more common kinds of wire. The solid wire used is usually made by progressively drawing down a metal during a series of round dies until the required diameter has been achieved.

What is Metal Wire Mesh?

Metal wire mesh could also be a standard kind of metal screen consisting of parallel rows and intersecting columns of wire. Although similar in appearance and their applications, perforated metal sheet and expanded metal sheet aren't kinds of wire mesh. Wire mesh comes in an almost limitless amount of shapes and sizes, and an outsized kind of materials and metal alloys.

There are two common sorts of mesh:

  1. Welded Wire Mesh
  2. Woven Wire Mesh

What is Welded Wire Mesh ?

 Welded wire mesh has intersecting rows and columns of parallel wires that are welded together at the intersection. Once the wire has been drawn right right down to the required size, it's fed into a machine which welds the multiple rows of wire together at their intersection.

As the mesh is fed through the machine, a parallel line of welds is formed simultaneously where the perpendicular lines meet. subsequent intersection of wires is then fed through the machine to be welded, and this process continues, joining each row of wires together. This machine typically welds the wires using electrical resistance because the source of heat. Although other welding methods could be employed, this is often often the usually most economical. Once the mesh has reached the required length, it's cut by a shear, resulting in a sheet of flat and rigid welded wire mesh.

What is Metal Woven Wire Mesh?

Woven wire mesh has an array of intersecting wires, almost sort of a woven cloth. Typically, the wires are woven over and under the perpendicular wires producing a stable sheet. This pattern is known as a “Plain Weave Wire Mesh”. For applications that require a more flexible sheet, a “Twill Weave Wire Mesh” are often used.

This involves wire that's woven over 2 perpendicular wires, then under subsequent set of two perpendicular wires, and so on. Woven wire mesh has not welding on them. Instead, they're fed into a machine almost sort of a loom which feeds a straight wire through chosen weave pattern. The wires are then bent to the reverse position, and thus subsequent straight wire is fed through the pattern. The machine continues this process until the required dimensions are reached and thus the finished wire mesh sheet is then move the required size.

Also, other Woven patterns are : “Plain Dutch Weave “, “Twill  Dutch Weave” and “Reverse Dutch Weave Wire Mesh”.


Welded wire mesh and woven wire mesh are utilized in many various fields. Several uses include:

  • Fences
  • Sifters
  • Filters
  • Screens
  • Grills
  • Machine and equipment safety barricades
  • Concrete reinforcement
  • Shelves
  • Cages
