Tag: Press Releases

Tire cord producers Bekaert Corp., Bridgestone Metalpha, Kiswire America and Tokusen U.S.A. Inc. have requested exemptions to the U.S.'s Section 232 steel tariffs for grade 1078 and above high-carbon wire rod.

Domestic suppliers cannot meet the demand of U.S. tire manufacturers for these steel products, said Tracey L. Norberg, U ...

Tag: Wire Dusseldorf

The goal of making more wire per die is easily reached with a Die Quip die finishing machine.  As a global manufacturing leader, we have established a line of machines to grind, polish and size dies in a quick, efficient, accurate process eliminating operator error and guesswork.  Better dies pull more wire and cause less production problems so we have designed stand alone machines for finishing dies in all sizes, and for larger production runs we build work cells to keep maximum efficiency and eliminate downtime from size changeovers.  Our approach to a modern die shop brings huge benefits to the whole production process by implementing a workflow system that sets procedures ...
