All production processes from a single source
Would it not be great to order a product – in this case made of wire cloth – from just one supplier? And a supplier who delivers it to you without complication and from a single source? Without time-consuming coordination and elaborate agreements between different stakeholders – no matter how complex your product is? For several generations, Haver & Boecker's cause has been to fulfil precisely this wish for you. Our extraordinary depth of production helps us to achieve this.
As a wire weaving division, processing wires is our core competence. We can produce wire cloth or pre-crimped wire mesh from the following wire thicknesses on our own weaving looms:
- 13 µm to 6.3 mm in Oelde
- Up to 12 mm in Belgium
- Up to 20 mm in Canada
For 130 years everything has revolved around warp and weft, and throughout the process a variety of woven wire cloth has been created, which will continue to grow with every new challenge in the future and truly leaves nothing to be desired.
We produce pre-crimped wire meshes with a wire diameter of approx. 0.5 mm to 20 mm. They are characterised by the fact that the warp and weft wires are pre-crimped, i.e. pre-formed, before weaving. This way we guarantee you a maximum accuracy of the meshes. In addition to round wires, we also process flat wires, cables or triangular profiles. For architectural meshes different types of wire can be combined.
Haver & Boecker designs and produces the required crimping wheels itself.
Your advantage: Here, too, we can respond to almost any customer request and produce the appropriate specification consisting of material, weave type, aperture width and wire thickness.

Precision screen printing is all about precise ink application.
The smoothed metal wire mesh has the effect of reducing deviations in print layer thickness and squeegee wear.
Processing screen printing mesh:
- Aqueous ultrasonic cleaning
- Can be cut to size in different windings:
e.g. 22.5° - 30° - 45° or 90°
- Thermal treatmentSolution soft annealing enables 3D deformation of the wire cloth, sintering fixes the wire crossings.
All Porostar® composite plates have one thing in common: They consist of a multitude of individually configurable wire mesh layers that are firmly joined to each other by diffusion. The geometric structure of the individual mesh layers remains unchanged and a stable porous filter medium with pre-determinable characteristics is created.
Production steps for Porostar® wire mesh laminates:
- Cutting the individual mesh layers
- Configuring and sintering
- Depending on the version, welding and / or moulding
For the production of pre-tensioned screen sections, the wire mesh is glued to the screen frame, e.g. under pre-tension. If required, the adhesive is food compliant according to VO (EG) No. 1935/2004, heat or acid resistant or suitable for the use of ultrasonic systems.
At first glance, hooking of wire cloth seems rather simple. However, the example of screen sections makes the complexity clear. This is because forming and hooking of screening mesh has a direct influence on:
- The service life of the screen section
- The installation and tensioning of the screen section
- The leak densitiy in the screening machine
Wire cloth chips in medical technology? Loose wires are unthinkable in this industry. That is why we clean our filter elements made of metal wire cloth particularly intensively.
For example, inhaler screens are cleaned in several steps:
- Wire mesh cleaning
- Degreasing edged parts
- Ultrasound cleaning
Metal filters and fabricated parts are given plastic edgings by injecting plastic melts into the cavities (hollow spaces) of a mould and compressing them.
Our team of employees from the company's toolmaking, R&D, engineering, and plastics engineering develop production equipment, tools and even new plastics to meet the highest demands for functionality and handling of the final hybrid elements.
We use various measuring and testing procedures to prove that our wire cloth products meet the respective requirements. All wires and wire cloth made from them are tested in our works laboratory. Furthermore, we pursue a zero-fault strategy in our production. In order to achieve this goal even with large-scale products and to be able to detect possible deviations from standards in a timely manner, these production processes are continuously monitored with the Haver Vision System developed in-house.
