Twilled weave

Characteristics

Twilled weave

Two wires are always bent with a subsequent offset over one wire (see the drawing). This weave is chosen mainly in cases when the wire is too thick with respect to the mesh size or if the cloth is too fine and therefore the bent wire does not stay in the woven weaves.

 

Spiky or alternate twilled weave

This weaving method is used when it is necessary to eliminate possible crosswise displacements. Because of frequent hole differences it is mainly used  for various inserts and only very rarely for filters and screens (see the drawing).
