There are two major varieties of knitting: weft knitting and warp knitting. Our knitted wire mesh is weft-knitted. In the more common weft knitting, the waves are perpendicular to the course of the wires. The knitted pattern is as follows:

Like weaving, knitting is a technique for producing a two-dimensional mesh made from a one-dimensional wire/thread. In weaving, threads are always straight, running parallel either warp wires (lengthwise) or weft wires (crosswise). By contrast, the wire in knitted mesh follows a meandering path (a course), forming symmetric loops (also called bights) symmetrically above and below the mean path of the wires. These meandering loops can be easily stretched in different directions giving knit meshes much more elasticity than woven cloth.
Also, each loop can act as a small spring when subjected to compressive stress. Thus, compressed knitted wire mesh yield to shock or vibration stresses, but immediately resumes their original form when the force is relieved. Calandered knitted mesh is from a rolling process which decreases open area.
In weft knitting, the entire knitted mesh is produced from a single wire, by adding stitches to each wale in turn, moving across the mesh as in a raster scan, in the style of a tube.

Knitted wire mesh can be made from any material that can be drawn into wire form or shape. The common materials applicable are stainless steel, copper, aluminum and plain steel wires, exotic alloys like Inconel, Incoloy, Monel, Hastelloy and Duplex, Nylon, polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polyester (PES), etc...
The most import parameters are wire diameter, guage (stitches per inch) and width of the mesh. The guage is normally 1~120, wire diameter 0.1 ~ 1 mm, width upto 700 mm.
Application can be found in reinforcement or support in composite materials, mist elimination/gas-liquid separators, flow aids, protection, and expansion joints, electronic EMI/RFI, insulation from power cables, absorbing vibrations, etc for general filtration, filtration & separation supports and industrial mesh supports & inlays.
The main properties of knitted spacer fabrics are:
– Good distribution of pressure peaks,
– Dispersion of air and moisture,
– Easy washable and dryable,
– Recyclable and non-poisonous.
