Types of cloths

Types of weaving

Thanks to the continous investment in machines and looms of the latest generation,  Tacchi Tessiture Tele Metalliche deals not only with the production of metallic meshes, but also with the weaving of metallic cloths of high quality.

In contrast to the metallic meshes, which are realized with metallic shaped and preprinted wires, metallic cloths are produced with automatic mechanic  looms and allow to obtain a grid formed by continous warp yarns and weft yarns.

The metallic cloths are different both for the size of the cloth and for the diameter of the wire used for the weaving, for the number of meshes and for the type of weaving, which can form a plain, twilled woven, twilled woven barbed, plain Dutch twilled, Dutch twilled weave  and pz. Tacchi Tessiture Tele Metalliche is also able to realize metallic cloths with different materials as stainless steel, copper, brass and bronze. 

Plain woven cloth

The warp and weft wires intersect alternatively one below and one above the other.
The meshes have wires that form perfect 90°right angles and so obtain the maximum light regularity. This is the most commonly used cloth mesh and is found in a wide range of applications.

Twilled woven cloth

Twilled woven cloth The warp and weft wires intersect alternatively two below and two above. In this weaving the wires tend to form different 90°right angles as a result of non compensated tensions.
This is generally used for very mesh cloths, more than 220 in number, or when it is necessary to use larger diameter wires as regards the mesh opening. In this case the wire is subject to less enervation yield thanks to a greater bending radius.

Crossed twilled woven cloth

Crossed twilled woven cloth In order to limit, at least to same extent, the problem of mesh irregularity and to avoid the risk of the texture not remaining “in square”, there is inversion, at regular intervals on the width, of the direction of the intersection of the wires with regard to the width itself. In this way, there is tension compensation and thus there is no warping of the cloth.

Plain dutch weave

Plain dutch weave The intersection of the wires, where the warp diameter is larger than the weft diameter, follows the system of“plain”  cloth, but the weft wires match. In this way, the passage is only transversal and occurs in the interstices formed at the intersection of the wires themselves.

Dutch twilled weave

Dutch twilled weave In this case, too, the weft wires match, but the intersection of the wires occurs according to the “twilled” system. In that case, compared to the “Reps” wires, given the same Ø of wire, a greater number of wires can be used, thus obtaining more thickness. Both“Touraille” and“Reps” are widely used in those filters where there is heavy operation pressure.

"PZ" reverse dutch weave

"PZ" reverse dutch weave This cloth is a variant of type Reps and aims at maximum filtering capacity, which is obtained thanks to an elevated passage surface. By manipulating the warp and weft wires, filtering openings from 10 to 100 microns can be obtined, with a usable crossing surface of 30-40%, maximum yield for similar performance.
