Precision Wire Forming
Our comprehensive range of Wire Flattening and Shaping Mills are suitable for rolling both ferrous and non-ferrous wires. Each application is reviewed in detail by our experienced engineering staff to determine the correct arrangement of equipment needed to satisfy your requirements. Many applications can be achieved with a single stand, two-stand tandem or three-stand tandem mill arrangement. For applications with more aggressive reductions, additional stands may be added or used in conjunction with Edgers, Turks Heads, Draw Blocks, or other equipment pertinent to the process and material requirements.
Our wide range of standard and custom mill sizes meet nearly every rolling need, from heavy ingot breakdown to high speed strip and wire flattening. Our laboratory models are widely used by research facilities and universities for metallurgical development and primary metal producers for pilot run process enhancement. Our large base of satisfied customers includes many prominent names in industries such as automotive, aerospace, military/defense, medical and materials research. The great reputation of our Rolling Mills is the result of the machine’s robust design, dependability, and versatility, along with scrupulous attention to quality and 100% conformance to the client’s project requirements.
Our Rolling mills are available in both 2Hi and 4Hi roll configurations, and mills may be either work roll driven, back-up roll driven, or a combination of both. On the small end of the spectrum, 4Hi mills with work rolls are offered as small as .500″ (12.7mm) in diameter. On the other end of the spectrum, 2Hi mills are offered with rolls as large as a 16″ (400mm) in diameter. Custom mills are our specialty, and we invite you to contact us with inquiries regarding mills of any size using theComtech Information Request Form on our Contact Page.
