Expanded Metal mesh is traditionally seen as a metal material with diamond shaped holes. Expanded Metal is produced by an expanding machine, which uses a pressured slitting and stretching process to transform solid metal sheets and coils into expanded mesh. Most types of metal, including precious and specially produced metals, can be expanded.
Expanded Metal Mesh Production Process
1. Sheets or coils or metal are fed into the expanding machine. A little metal can create a lot of mesh, adding value and saving resources and money.
2. Each machine is fitted with a unique "Knife", dedicated to a particular pattern. New patterns and knives can be created in-house for specific applications.
3. The machines are then programmed or manually controlled to ensure the metal is expanded to the exact specification. Rigorous quality checks are carried out to ensure product consistency throughout the expanding process.
4. Using the unique shearing and streching process means very little waste is created. the metal is sheared and then streched in a single process creating the apertures and therefore expanding the metal. The mesh is then either cut into sheets or wound onto coils ready for shipping or further processing.
Composition of expanded metal machine
The expanded metal mesh machine is composed of main machine frame, driving system, crankshaft, upper blade frame(movable frame), down blade frame, feeding device, material moving device, lubrication system and electric control part.

8. How do we solve the machine problem after your engineer leaving?
Generally speaking, there will be no problem after finish installing. In case you have any problem. You can contact our sales at any time. Our engineer will take a solution video according your description.
9. How many worker do we need running those machines?
One or two workers required for machine operation, there will be only one worker for our micro type expanded metal mesh machine within 25T punching force otherwise need two workers for hevay duty expanded metal machine.
Our ABE series expanded metal mesh machines are revolutionary products. We adopt automatic feeding device by servo or step motor, automatic lubrication system and PLC control system with famouns brand such as Siemens, Mitsubishi, etc. Electric elements use Schenider brand.
We have various different type of expanded metal machine, the specification from 6.3 tons to 260 tons. Expanding thickness of material can be from 0.1 to 10mm and mesh width from 600mm to 3200mm.
Our designer adopts 3D modeling design to make sure our machine have perfect performance. Our factory always focus on the machine's innovation. Base on our customer value feedback, we keep updating our machine design. We ensure your investment can get value back.
