Pre-Crimp & Heavy Duty Wire Mesh

Dorstener Wire Tech’s pre-crimp and heavy duty wire mesh products are suited for applications that require strength and stability.

Wire, or space, cloth with a pre-crimp mesh is woven using wire crimped prior to weaving. The crimps are made at the points the shute and warp wires intersect which secures the wire, thereby stabilizing the wire cloth and preventing the wire from moving. Additional rigidity and strength can be obtained by adding crimps between the intersections, using an intermediate crimp. Crimped wire provides a more secure fit to the mesh, limiting movement of the space cloth. This results in more accurate and consistent opening sizes within the mesh.

Pre-Crimp & Heavy Duty Wire Mesh Options

crimped wire mesh

Crimped wire mesh is used in the waste water, oil refining, mining, construction, safety and food processing industries for applications that require strength and large-hole filtering and screening. Pre-crimped wire cloth is also used in architectural and industrial design applications.

DWT’s heavy duty wire mesh is custom manufactured for products and applications requiring strength and rigidity, such as sieves and vibration filter media for sizing, sorting and filtering heavy or large materials. Heavy duty wire cloth is used in the mining, refining and construction industries.
