Types of Weaves

Plain Weave Plain Weave - Wire cloth in which each warp and each shute wire passes over one and under the next adjacent complementary wire in both directions. This is the simplest, most commonly used weave. Also called "Square Weave".

Twilled Weave Twilled Weave - Wire cloth where which each shute wire passes successively over two and under two warp wires and each warp wire passes successively over two and under two shute wires.

Plain-Dutch Weave Plain-Dutch Weave - The pattern of the wire cloth is the same as in plain weave except that the warp wires are of larger diameter than the shute wires and the shute wires are driven up close to each other, resulting in tapered or wedge-shaped openings instead of square openings. In Dutch weave the warp wires remain in straight condition and the shute wires are crimped.

Twilled-Dutch Weave Twilled-Dutch Weave - Wire cloth which has the same pattern as twilled weave except the warp wires are of larger diameter than the shute wires and the shute wires are driven up close to each other, resulting in tapered or wedge-shaped openings. Warp wires remain in a straight condition, but the shute wires take all the crimp. Due to the twilled weave construction, the shute wires are not only deformed in depth (crimps when formed around the warp wires) but also sideways.
