At WireTech we know the best way to finish with superior quality wire is to start with the best raw material produced in the world. With this in mind we have developed intensive mill selection and audit procedures to ensure our suppliers meet our stringent specifications.
Intensive mill selection
Rigorous audit Procedures
Inside storage is vital for aerospace and surface critical applications
WireTech ‘scleaning and coating line is capable of removing all traces of mill scale; rust and rolling contamination is removed from the steel prior to drawing. Our acid recovery system maintains the proper concentration while extracting scale in the form of iron hepta-hydrate which is recycled as a component for many useful products. We work directly with you to develop custom coatings to meet your specific needs.
Up close visual inspection by highly trained cleaning line operators
Ample capacity to chemically clean 100% of our product
Some of the coatings available include:
Environmentally Friendly Acid Recovery System
WireTech’s innovative and atmosphere controlled furnaces deliver annealed wire with the highest degree of spheroidization. Tightly sealed against oxygen contamination, with protective nitrogen atmosphere (Which we produce on site with our environmentally friendly nitrogen generation equipment), these furnaces provide consistent quality from load to load allowing us to meet the toughest requirements.
A pre-established in-process testing procedure is performed after each thermal treatment, as well as inspection of the finished products. All annealing cycles are carefully recorded and become part of the permanent historical record on each individual order.
The Right Equipment
The Right People
The Most Experience
WireTech’s state of the art shaving equipment removes all rod surface imperfections (e.g. seams, decarb). This process has made WireTech thenumber one supplier of seam and decarb free steel wire to the aerospace fastener industry.
Our drawing equipment is capable of producing diameters from .070” to .950” with size tolerances of +/-0.0005 on small diameter wire and +/-0.0015 for large diameter wire and coil weights up to 3500 lb. Based on your equipment constraints, we have the flexibility to produce a wide array of coil IDs for efficient payoff.
Our straighten, cut, and grinding equipment can provide you with cold drawn and centerless ground bars in diameters between .090 and .680 inches in lengths from 6 to 20 ft.
Tight Size Tolerances
Variety of Inside Diameters on Coils
