The Waterbury Farrel Wire Flattening Mill is the first choice for any industries which require high speed and precise wire production. Typical products are rectangular copper wire for electrical equipment, low-carbon steel ribbon for BX cable, nickel-chrome flat wire for heating elements and high-carbon wire for springs. Mills operate at speeds exceeding 3500 fpm and are available in single or multiple stands. Wire capacities range from a few microns to 20 mm.
The unique design of the Waterbury Farrel Tandem Rod Mill permits a series of mills to be arranged in sequence while minimizing footprint. This enables a greater reduction in a single straight-through pass than would be possible with other cold-rolling processes, all at significantly lower production costs.
