How the sintered wire mesh is made?
Fully inspected and defect-free wire mesh was cut into pieces. Some kind of wire mesh may need pre-calendering to ensure the flatness and facilitate the sintering. Then layers of wire mesh are laminated with designed alignment and spot welded to avoid movement during transferring.
The wire mesh laminates then will be stacked into the furnace. The sintering process will take dozens of hours. The wires merge with adjacent counterparts and the laminates become a whole part.
After controlled cooling the sintered wire mesh laminates are calendered to required thickness. Flatness of the sintered wire mesh is then obtained by the process of flattening. Finally the sintered mesh is cleaned and dried, then ready to be fabricated or packaged.
