Straightened and cut wires accommodate a broad range of grades, material, and size to meet varying customer needs. Regardless of small or large production runs, modern production equipment achieves cut and strengthen needs that have quick turnaround times and high production quality.
Two straightening and cutting operations are performed to accommodate the various needs of manufacturers. These two include:
- Close-tolerance circular dies are used to ensure the lowest possible amount of deformation during the cut-off process. This method offers a clean and square shoulder that has limited burring.
- Rotary straightening arbors provide users with a consistent quality of straightness that is unmatched by other fabrication operations.
For straight and cut wire, it is possible to work with a wide array of different materials and grades. It is also possible to alter the length and diameter of wires. Wires meet ASTM standards. Some of the most commonly used materials include:
- Low Carbon Galvanized Steel
- Low Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- High Carbon and Spring Temper Steel
- Non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, and nickel alloys)
For the materials above, typical straightening and cutting capabilities handle a wide range of diameters. Wire lengths are known to range from one inch to longer than four feet. It is possible to get specialized varying degrees of tolerance.
