Looped Wire Screens
U.S. Screen Company is proud to offer a proprietary technology advancement in loop wire solutions. In partnership with David Meyer, PHD in Engineering technology, U.S. Screen proudly offers loop wire products that offers maximum durability that is demanded from various screening industries. The U.S. Screen Company Looped Wire is produced with a three-point production system, as opposed to the standard seventeen-point of antiquated loop screen manufacturing. It is with this, that U.S. Screen has been able to offer superior loop screen. A three year process in the making, we are fortunate to have the expertise and knowledge that Dr. Meyer has brought in the development in loop wire that will revolutionize the industry.
Thirty-three years manufacturing experience in engineering, operations and plant management. Primary focus was on R&D, new technology, investment in new plants and automation of equipment, and skilled personnel.
