Production Tips









Major Wire Industries Limited is a leading manufacturer of screen media throughout North America and many parts of the world. Headquartered in a flagship 93,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in the Montreal-area of Quebec, Canada, the company has built a solid reputation as a pioneering and premium quality provider of screen media that serves the aggregate, mining, recycle, asphalt, slag, green waste, top soil and related markets.Since he purchased the company in 1990, President Jean Leblond has significantly grown the business and expanded it internationally with the introduction of several revolutionary new products. These include:

Flex-Mat® 3 High-Performance, Self-Cleaning Screen Media in tensioned and modular versions

The industry’s strongest woven wire with OptimumWire® Woven Wire

Several unique screening solutions for specific challenges involving one or more of these key technologies

In 1996, Major Wire introduced a revolutionary new line of self-cleaning screen cloth. The result was Flex-Mat 3 High-Performance, Self-Cleaning Screen Media, which is constructed of independently vibrating wires and polyurethane strips that dramatically increase material throughput, lengthen wear life, and virtually eliminate blinding, pegging and clogging. It has had a dramatic impact on production output for more than 20,000 applications worldwide.

Flex-Mat 3 uses a highly automated, precise and proprietary manufacturing process to replace the largely manual, imprecise, labor-intensive process the rest of the industry continues to use today. In fact, only recently have some other screen media suppliers begun to offer their clones. Today, these manufacturers are still selling their first generations, and are struggling with the tremendous learning curve required to make this unique screen media effective. Extensive application and installation knowledge, along with a wide range of opening sizes and wire diameters, are critical to truly maximize each screen deck's throughput. These features are available only in Major Wire's Flex-Mat 3.
