Chain Link Fencing Machine: How it works and the beneficiary

A chain link fencing machine is machinery that can produce wire netting, wire-mesh fence, chain-wire fence, cyclone fence, hurricane fence, and diamond-mesh fences as well as chain link fence. These terms are all referring to the same thing which is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized or LLDPE-coated steel wire items for industrial usages.

About Chain Link Fencing Machine

A chain link fencing machine is machinery that can produce wire netting, wire-mesh fence, chain-wire fence, cyclone fence, hurricane fence, and diamond-mesh fences as well as chain link fence. These terms are all referring to the same thing which is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized or LLDPE-coated steel wire items for industrial usages.

Appearance

Regarding the appearance, the wire extends vertically and is bent into a zig-zag shape. Each "zig" is hooked on one side of the wire, and each "zag" is hooked on the other side. This design forms a unique diamond pattern often seen in this type of fence.

Many Taiwan chain link fencing machine suppliers provide automatic chain link fencing machines that can be used to produce 2 to 6 meters wide chain link fences and use different materials such as galvanized wire, PVC coated wire and SUS wire. Customers can choose different types of re-coilers according to their production requirements.

Applications in the States

Regarding fence application in the United States, the fence usually uses a 20 ft or 50 ft rolls, which can be joined by unscrewing one of the end wires and then screwing it back in, so long as it can hook both pieces. Almost any height is possible, depending on market demand.

Mesh gauges

Common mesh gauges are 9, 11, and 11.5. The length of the mesh can vary according to market demand. The standard diamond size is about 2 inches. For tennis courts and ball parks, the most popular height is 10 or 12 feet, and the diamond size used in tennis courts is 1.75 inches from side to side.

Tennis court fencing

Tennis courts usually use a smaller diamond size, as long as the hitters cannot fit the ball. The chain link fence is popular because its cost is relatively low, and the open weave does not block the sunlight on either side of the fence, thereby providing better ventilation and natural lighting. However, if necessary, one can make the chain link fence opaque by inserting slats into the mesh. In addition, fences that allow ivy to grow and interweave are also a popular choice.

The installation of fences

All protection settings must be installed correctly. For the installation of chain link fences, the posts must be placed underground and the fences fixed on it.

The posts may be timber, steel tubing, or concrete, and can be driven into the ground or fixed in a concrete seat. For the posts installed at the ends, corners or gate posts, they are usually called "terminal posts", which must be installed in concrete seats or otherwise anchored to prevent tilting under the tension of a stretched fence.

In between installation

For posts installed between terminal posts, called line posts, the spacing between these posts shall not exceed 10 feet. The installer fixes one end of the fence and then stretches it and connects it to the other end. In this way, the excess part can be easily removed by unscrewing the wire. Finally, the installer will tie the fence to the post with aluminum wire.

Tension issue

In many cases, the installer stretches the bottom tension wire, sometimes called the “coil wire”. The tension line is located between the terminal posts and is used to minimize the in and out movement that occurs at the bottom of the chain link mesh between posts

Horizontal rails

In chain link fences, the top horizontal rail is usually used for most chain link fences, although it is not necessary. In the metalworking industry, chain link fences are produced by weaving. The wire is usually galvanized to reduce corrosion, and then the wire is pulled along a rotating long and flat blade, so that it creates a somewhat flattened spiral.

Then, the spiral continues to rotate past the blade and bypass the previous spiral, which is already part of the fence. Once the spiral reaches the far end of the fence, the spiral is cut near the blade. In the next step, the spiral is flattened and the entire fence moves upwards for the next cycle.
