How to Improve Your Wiredrawing Process and Gain a Competitive Advantage
The program will address concepts for improving the speed of wiredrawing machinery as well as product quality. It offers solutions particularly for operations whose wire on the drawing blocks is not three quarters of the way up the drawing surface. It addresses the use of taper, radius and water cooling.
The webinar will discuss practical strategies such as proper use of coatings for capstans, pulleys, and tuner and guide rolls, as well as recording common-sense feedback on capstan performance. It will discuss priorities for diagnosing and correcting problems like overlapping and wire separation, and possible problem sources such as heat problems or incorrect number of wraps.
