Knitted Wire Mesh Capabilities

Knitted wire mesh has a distinct advantage over other forms of wire due to its unique form. The interlocking loops each act as a spring so that when exposed to tensile stress, it is far more resilient.

When you purchase from Loos & Co., Inc., you can choose to purchase in bulk. Many of our customers find it beneficial as it reduces cost and lead time.

Manufacturing Process

The knitted wire mesh manufacturing process forms wire into a series of interlocking loops to create a flexible cylinder of material. The "sleeve" of knitted wire mesh is then formed into a roll and further processed by flattening, shaping, crimping, over-knitting, or custom processes to satisfy your performance requirements.

Capabilities and Equipment

In our fully integrated mill, wire from .002" to .035" diameter can be knitted to produce sleeves ranging from 1" to 16" wide, in soft or hard tempers. These sleeves can then be stacked and rolled for noise dampening and fluid filtering applications, in light, medium, and heavy density. Our quality department provides full measurement capability, including tensile and compression testing. We offer crimping, shaping, cutting, and final assembly to create the specialized products you need in your application.
