COMPARING WOVEN WIRE MESH OR WIRE WELDED MESH

Welded or woven wire screen mesh: which one is better? That answer determines, of course, on what you need to use it for. Each type of metal cloth material boasts its own strengths, and they largely stem from the way each kind is crafted. Let’s take an in-depth look at the characteristics of woven and welded wire cloth.

 

Woven Wire Mesh: Pros and Cons

From its practical beginnings in medieval Europe to the 18th century, the advantages of woven wire cloth are certainly plentiful. Today’s wire cloth is woven with various kinds of metals including stainless steel, brass, copper and aluminum alloys, and even high heat resistant metals like molybdenum and tungsten. Woven wire cloth is often more affordable than welded cloth because it takes less labor to produce. A handful of key areas are welded together to hold the woven metal cloth in place. As a result, the woven material is more flexible to work with. Several types of woven wire cloth mesh are available on the market. For example, wire cloth can be woven in twill weave, plain weave, pre-crimp weave, filter cloth weave and more.

Due to its more flexible nature, woven wire cloth is particularly useful for irregular contours, but smaller items such as ultrasonic parts may fall out of the container or through the steel mesh holes. Woven metal mesh also has a tendency to not be quite as strong as welded metal for protective purposes.

Welded Wire Cloth Mesh: Pros and Cons

In contrast to a woven wire, welded wire cloth is permanently welded at all or most intersecting joints. This welding process makes the material more rigid and allows it to hold a more uniform shape. This is particularly helpful in industrial applications where the wire welded mesh fits into mechanical parts with set measurements. Welded wire metal is more efficient at holding lids in place compared to its woven counterpart. Welded wire cloth contains heavy duty loads and withstands greater force without breaking or tearing, making it the ideal choice for protective or barrier applications. It has a greater durability against the rigors of daily cleaning, and can also be galvanized for further strength and corrosion resistance to high moisture and salt environments.

That said, welded wire cloth is very useful for its strength, but it also tends to be the costlier material because more time and labor is involved.

 

Woven Wire or Welded Screen Mesh? The Choice is Yours

As you can see, both welded and woven wire metal share in their own strengths and weaknesses. Keep these factors in mind when selecting the type of wire that matches closest to your needs:

  • Woven wire metal:

Is flexible and simple to use for irregular fittings

Takes less time to produce

Can be made in many kinds of metal alloys with variable sizes and thickness

Is more affordable than welded wire

  • Welded wire metal, on the other hand:

Is stronger than woven wire

Holds its shape better for more specific measurements

Contains heavier and smaller items better than woven metal

Can be galvanized to provide further corrosion resistance.
