Knitted wire mesh Shielding is made from a single continuous filament offering high levels of Shielding performance in compressed form or in knitted wire mesh tapes.
Knitted wire mesh Shielding has several properties that give it a unique ability to absorb energy. The result is a material ideal for use in many applications, able to reduce vibration, attenuate sound and dissipate heat.
In the knitting process, wire loops are created that act like tiny springs. It is these springs that return to their original shape after being subjected to compression. The loops are also free to move in several directions, allowing the knitted material to have natural resilience and to vibrate when sound energy hits the knitted wires. When vibrating, the wires convert sound energy into thermal energy and create a sound-dampening effect.
Compressing knitted wire mesh in a die creates an element that has a tortuous air path with intricate passages that also attenuate sound by absorption.
Boegger knitted mesh Shielding can be made in a variety of materials and grades including stainless steel, Monel, aluminum and tin or copper coated steel. It is supplied into desired shapes and sizes for industrial engineering applications. Knitted wire mesh Shielding is available in circular, rectangular and cylindrical form. While knitted mesh Shielding is available in several wire types, tinned copper clad steel is the most popular knitted mesh for Shielding.
The above features enable the knitted material, in a variety of forms, to reduce vibration, attenuate sound or dissipate heat. In some cases, all of these functions can be achieved in the same application. Commonly, these components have applications in automotive exhaust components, aerospace, marine and air tool industries, where thermal, vibration and sound attenuation insulation needs to be light weight, efficient and compact.
For example: Two layers of knitted wire mesh Shielding wrap cable with an overlap of 50% this results in even 4 layers of metal, which can greatly reduce radiated interference.
