Special processing for wire cloth produces a product that can be more easily fabricated and shaped, and increases the quality of the end product. Boegger Wire Tech provides annealed and soft sintered woven wire mesh for applications that require special shapes or processing.
Annealing changes the properties of the wire cloth, allowing it to be stretched without tearing and stabilizing it after cold working. The mesh loses all memory after annealing, providing for easier fabrication and shaping.
Annealed Wire Cloth Options
Annealed wire cloth can be:
Deep drawn without tearing the cloth.
Precision-shaped into custom shapes such as small-height pleats
Fabricated into a new shape, with no loss of the shape over time, as the material loses memory of the pre-annealed shape.
we can anneal mesh in coils, full rolls and in panels when required.
Soft sintering, or coil sintering, bonds the wire cloth, eliminating loose wires during stamping or forming. The bonds at wire intersections are surface bonds, producing a soft material that can be easily formed and shaped. While the bonds can break under pressure, they are normally strong enough to hold during forming.
Soft Sintered Cloth Applications
Soft sintered cloth is used for:
Small, precise shapes that must be bent, such as mesh for microphones in small electronic products.
Stamped parts without loose wire edges, or that will be bent during processing without loosing the shape of the mesh.
