Common weaving technologies
The plain weave: It is the commonest and simplest cloth weave that integrates the warps and wefts into alternating runs of up and down respectively at right angles (90 degrees). The applications of the plain weave meshes are also the highest for all the types of weave mesh. Here, the size of openings can be easily adjusted by changing the proximity of adjacent warps or wefts.
The Twill Dutch weave: The technology combines Dutch and twill weaves into a finely knit mesh. Upon completion of the weaving process, Shute wires are crossed underneath two warps, to provide a tight and finely knit mesh. The size of mesh spaces can be altered by adjusting adjacent wires in the mesh. Finely knit twill Dutch meshes are often used as filters in applications involving gas and liquids. Further refinement can be done on the wires to achieve micron sized gauges for specialty uses.
Reverse Dutch weave: It uses coarse mesh wires that are woven between differing diameter wires. A paralleled diagonal appearance is usually produced by intertwining the wires on staggered patterns along successive warps. The technology further allows for the use of proportionately heavier wires with the aim of increasing the size of the spaces between the warps and wefts. Once complete, the cloth can support a wide range of heavier loads than most of the other meshes, hence a high number of applications.
