Expanded Steel Diamond Mesh is another kind of metal screen
industry, which is also one of the main varieties of metal plate mesh. Also
known as expanded metal mesh, expanded diamond mesh, expanded metal lath, heavy
steel plate net, foot net, punching plate, etc. After the steel mesh punching
machine processing, the metal plate becomes a mesh with mesh of diamond.

Expanded Metal Process
If you are curious about
how the process of forming expanded metal mesh, XinZheng is happy to provide
you with a step-by-step guide to manufacturing these products on our
or plate is advanced beyond the face of the bottom die in an amount equal to
the strand width before flattening. The sheets are then fed into an expanding
top die then descends and simultaneously slits and cold forms an entire row of
top die then ascends and moves one half of a diamond to the right as the base
sheet or plate moves forward one strand width.
top die descends, slits and forms another full row of half-diamonds completing
a row of full diamonds in two strokes.
die then ascends and returns to its initial position.
This process then
continually repeats until the full sheet of expanded metal is completed. This
mesh is then either cut into sheets or rolled into coils for either shipping or
