Inline Pre-Treatment of P.C. Strandwire with Mechanical Descaling and Electro-Phosphating.
Horizontal wire rod pay-off, the wire is subsequently driven in a combined infeeding, bending/breaking and straightening machine (BDM-2S / EG), the scale layer is broken and the wire is straightened without cracks. The wire pull in is considerably facilitated by this system concept.
In the following double-head sanding machine with two sanding belts, the wire will be cleaned and surface pre-treated for the further coating process with a cleaning level of up to 98%.
The wire preparation plant before the actual drawing process is the patented e-phos plant in line from STAKU Anlagenbau GmbH.
