Revolving Cylinder (WT Series)

The range provides versatile high-speed knitting machines for the manufacture of tubular knitted wire mesh, for generally the chemical, electrical and aircraft industries.

Products include High temperature supports for the precious metal catalytic converters, flexible high temperature exhaust seals, de-mister pads, anti-vibration mountings, noise insulation pads, aircraft air conditioning filters and industrial & domestic pot scourers.

The machines have a revolving cylinder and take-up roll with four frame sizes covering a range of cylinder diameters which are interchangeable within each frame size.


bulletWT100 - 1.5" (40mm) to 6.5" (165mm) diameter
bulletWT200 - 6.5" (165mm) to 15" (381mm) diameter
bulletWT300 - 15" (381mm) to 20" (508mm) diameter
bulletWT500 - 20" (508mm) to 26" (660mm) diameter

The number of feeds is variable according to machine diameter. Production rates are determined by material and quality of wire used.


Three types of wire feed are available:-

1. Floor or pallet located bobbins with heavy duty snatch detectors mounted above the machine. This system is best suited for wire sizes above 0.006" (0.15mm) to 0.020" (0.5mm) diameter. It provides the best protection against faults in the knitted fabric caused by the wire snagging, by providing a reserve of wire whilst the machine is halted.

2. Overhead mounting of the wire bobbins is most suitable when smaller bobbins are used. The wire package is contained within a circular steel cage to prevent the wire as it balloons from the package tangling with the adjacent package. The wire passes down through the centre of its own package through a wire motion detector on the knit-head.

3. Positive feed only for wire sizes up to 0.006" (0.15mm) diameter. Best system for semi- precious metals and delicate wires. The system also incorporates several detectors to prevent fabric faults and press-offs.

The takedown mechanism is infinitely variable over the knitting range.

An AC inverter drive system gives full control of running speed, acceleration, braking and crawl speed.

The machine is fully guarded with 10mm polycarbonate doors fitted with approved magnetic safety switches to EC standards.

A power supply of 200/240 volts, single phase, 50/60 Hz is required. Our machines can also be manufactured to run on 415 volts, three phase supplies.
