The course examines key functions of these materials, details the manufacturing process, and outlines critical specification considerations to ensure beautiful and long lasting installations.
Curious about how wire mesh is manufactured on a loom? The video on the right demonstrates how pre-crimped wire mesh is woven on both an automated and manual loom.
Individual lengths of wires are sent through a crimper to establish both warp wires (Long wires) and fill wires (Cross wires). The warp wires are individually positioned through the loom’s heddle frames. The heddle frames provide the movement that creates the “Shed” in which a cross wire will be inserted manually or automatically. Once the cross wire is in position, the loom’s sleigh will force it into the next available crimp pocket on the warp wires. Then, the heddle frames will reposition creating the “Over/Under” sequence.
