Manufacturing Technology

How expanded metal is produced

The metal is inserted on coils or in the form of plates into the rear of the machine.
Each machine is fitted with a special blade which defines the mesh width.
The machines are programmed with the necessary parameters and manually controlled by our qualified employees.
During the elongation process the raw metal sheet is reformed through systematic slitting and predefined stretching. The metal is either formed into rolls or cut to defined sizes.

In order to work with expanded metal and perforated metal plate, a number of calculations are helpful. Here you will find the most important formulas and calculations.
