Along with woven wire mesh, welded wire mesh is one of the two main types of wire cloth products. Welded wire mesh is typically the less expensive of the two materials. It consists of a grid pattern featuring a series of parallel longitudinal wires that are welded together at the point where the wires intersect. The strength and thickness of the weld are determined by factors such as weld pressure, time and temperature. Welded wire mesh can also be bent or cut to form a variety of shapes without causing the wires to come apart.
