The solution is an investment in a £3m custom made mesh welding machine. The mesh welding machine has revolutionised how Zaun can supply fencing systems, as short runs of bespoke panels can easily be accommodated.
The process of panel manufacture starts with the delivery of coils of wire. Next, De-coilers feed the wire into straightening machines, which cut the wire to the required length, dependent on the type of panel being produced. These wire rods are now loaded into cartridges in the weld mesh machine.
The vertical wires are fed down parallel channels and pass under the welding heads, at which point the second cartridge fires across the horizontal wires. Precision timing and fine mechanical tolerances mean that the mesh machine can quickly produce large quantities of high-quality panels.
Unlike most other mesh manufacturers, the mesh manufacturing set-up can be changed quickly, allowing relatively small quantities of bespoke mesh.
