Virtual Mesh Design

Virtual Mesh Design

The specific properties of a wire cloth can be precisely described and defined geometrically by the type of weave, wire diameter and mesh counts.

Haver & Boecker uses the GeoDict software to determine in advance the best suited cloth configuration for the particular area of application. By simulating different situations, it is possible to optimize existing wire cloth specifications and develop new ones.

3D-Cloth Model
Using specific cloth parameters resulting from the type of weave, aperture width, pitch and wire diameter, Haver & Boecker can depict the structure of single-layer cloths and multiple-layer cloths as a real 3D model.

Flow Behaviour
Behaviour of the respective cloth or cloth laminate in various fluids such as air, water and fuel as a function of flow velocity or differential pressure.

Geometric Pore Size

For the Geometrie Pore a characteristic value is determinier that describes the Diameter of a round sphere that is just able to pass through the wire mesh. For the pore size (PG, Haver & Boecker states the value Xmax (= maximum pore size) as reference.


Calendering reduces the cloth to a predetermined thickness between two steel rollers. The cloth becomes more non-displaceable, the wire crests are flattened, the smoothed surface is adapted to following production and application purposes.

  • Optimisation of cloth configurations: Construction of single-layer and multiple-layer cloth, flow, pore size, pore channel
  • Analysis of sample materials
