How we Develop the Best Wire Product for Your Application

2010 400

Our Approach

Our process begins with a thorough analysis of the end use of your wire product. Once we’ve reviewed the operating requirements, our team can start developing the best profile wire product for the lowest total cost.

Once we’ve worked together to create an approved cross-section on print, tooling is developed for a trial run. This wire is tested for size, shape, and physical property requirements. If we’re satisfied the results will meet your expectations, the trial order is sent to you in either coil or cut to length for your approval.

The Rolling Process



Before wire is shaped, our drawing lines reduce

its cross-section closer to your final spec by

pulling the material through a series of dies.

Our shaped wire rolling facilities offer various

dimensional capabilities, producing from the

smallest cross-sections to the very largest, as well

as a variety of surface finishes. Our multiple flat

wire rolling mills and turks head mills, roll your

custom shapes to size. The process includes

intermediate anneals when necessary.

Our annealing furnaces are continuous and

in-line. We utilize hydrogen, nitrogen and argon-controlled atmospheres in order to properly anneal the broad range of alloys we offer. These furnaces allow us to satisfy the most demanding specifications of critical industries such as: Aerospace, Medical and Nuclear. We also offer bright annealing for superior finishes.
