By design, almost everything about wiring drawing and shaping causes extremely heavy wear. The materials are usually highly abrasive and the pressures on capstans, blocks and other surfaces erode the surfaces and damage your products. Even the lubricants required by the drawing operation work to corrode the working surfaces and hasten their damage. As a result, the more wire you produce the faster your production components wear out…and that causes out-of-spec wire and line stoppages.
Wire manufacturers throughout the Midwest have turned to BMR Group to help them overcome the heavy wear their components experience. Whether they are drawing wire for agricultural fencing, electric motors, or medical applications, they all demand consistent quality of their products and durability of their production lines.
When it comes to repairing blocks and capstans and just about any other component used in the wire industry, these manufacturers expect BMR to provide the toughest, longest-lasting finishes you’ll find anywhere. We can toughen up the drawing surfaces of large steel blocks for the heaviest wire applications as well as those ceramic surfaces on small step cones.
That’s because BMR Group has developed so many options for keeping your wire drawing equipment in top producing form. We are experts in repairing broken wire drawing components, bringing them back to OEM specs and lengthening their service life with laser hardening or thermal-sprayed coatings.
If you’ve had a component breakdown, or if you’re not getting enough production from the equipment on your line, call BMR Group at 260-635-2195 or email us to discover how other wire producers are improving their bottom lines.
