In the past, metal nets made of metal instead of wood used to be very expensive items because the form of the metal nets was very complicated and heavy. However, as Americans launched long-term agricultural activities in the 19th century, the demand for metal mesh and metal net became crucial to protect farmers’ crops. The metal net can be made or fabricated by welding, intertwining, and many other metal working methods.
One of the most common things in the wire-making process is the welded wire mesh, or called welded wire fabric. This is a prefabricated connection grid for fused welding, consisting of a series of parallel longitudinal lines, and the accurate spacing welded to cross wires with the required spacing. Metal net making machines are used to produce screens with precise dimensional control. This product can save a lot of time, labor and cost.
Using a metal net making machine, users can obtain a reliable metal nets at a reasonable price, and use suitable fences to protect crops for agricultural use. In agricultural applications, fences are used to keep animals in or out particularly restricted areas, which is agricultural property defined by the owner. These fences can be made from a variety of wood or metal materials, depending on the terrain, location, and animals to be confined.
Most agricultural fences have an average height of about 1.2 meter, and in some places, the law requires the heights and construction fences should be designed for livestock. A fencerow is a piece of land surrounded by uncultivated fences. It may be a refugee in a hedge, shelter belt or native plant. If it is not too narrow, it will act as a habitat corridor. From the historical perspective of most societies in the world, domesticated animals can roam freely and are surrounded by gardens or crop fields and other unwanted places. All the while, especially when crop agriculture is dominant and the population density of people and animals is critical, livestock owners are fenced to protect their animals and keep them in a well-managed state. The earliest fences were made of available materials, usually stone or wood, and these original materials are still used by some fences even today.
Meanwhile, in areas where field stones are plentiful, fences have been established over the years. Because of cultivating and planting crops, the rocks were moved from the field. The stones were placed on the edge of the field to remove them. Therefore, it is well known that metal nets or fences are made to protect specific properties not to be touched by other animals or in some cases, by others people, or to prevent restricted animals from losing to field owners.
The requirement of metal mesh and wire fence is that they are mainly supported by tension and stretched between the heavy strutted or guy wired posts at the ends, corners. In Ideal condition, they should be separated by a longer distance, so the metal net making machine must be able to operate at a speed that enables this specification to be achieved. Between these support columns, there are other smaller wooden or metal columns that keep the wires spaced and upright, and the spacing is usually ranging from 10 to 20 feet, depending on the specification of the type of fence used. The specifications of the fence also need to state the width of the mesh, wire diameter, etc. The supplier will tell the purchasers about the delivery time for the net making and the entire production process.
Although the installation method of metal net is a very old technology, it is still very practical to protect various agricultural properties, including livestock and plants, from unnecessary contact or touch. In this way, it is expected that the technology of the metal net making machine will grow as well as the agricultural development soars in the fields all over the world. Now, with GE technology, genetically engineered agricultural properties have affected the way humans produce crops and meat sources, and this technology may also have a major impact on the design and development of metal net making machines. No matter how the technology changes and develops, we humans need certain restrictions and definitions. Therefore, in addition to agricultural applications, net making can also be applied to other application fields, such as land demarcation or construction projects. The demand for these specific machinery will continue to grow with the development of civilization.
