How Banker Wire makes Metal Mesh

Curious about how wire mesh is manufactured on a loom? This video demonstrates how pre-crimped wire mesh is woven on both an automated and manual loom. Individual lengths of wires are sent through a crimper to establish both warp wires (Long wires) and fill wires (Cross wires). The warp wires are individually positioned through the loom’s heddle frames. The heddle frames provide the movement that creates the “Shed” in which a cross wire will be inserted manually or automatically. Once the cross wire is in position, the loom’s sleigh will force it into the next available crimp pocket on the warp wires and the heddle frames will reposition creating the “Over/Under” sequence.

St. Lucie County Humane Society’s new play yard

SYNLawn’s donation of artificial pet grass at a Florida shelter helps transform the lives of dogs and increase pet adoption rates.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – In hope of creating a happier environment for dogs in need of forever homes, SYNLawn, the world’s long-standing powerhouse artificial grass manufacturer, and Miami-based distributor EasyGrass donated and installed artificial pet grass at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County, Inc.

As part of SYNLawn’s yearlong partnership with SPCA International, the company recently completed one of eight landscape donation projects currently in the works at SPCA International partner shelters. The animal shelter in Port St. Lucie, Florida, houses approximately 150 animals, including 65 to 75 dogs. With the help of SYNLawn, the shelter added a third play yard by transforming an unused field into a fenced-in area where small dogs can play and exercise outside.
