This terrible accident resulted in the deaths of 13 people and changed forever the way industrial manufacturers manage and mitigate dust-related risk. This accident illustrated the risk associated with combustible dusts. As a result OSHA began intensive review and enforcement of dust-related risk and wire manufacturers began searching for ways to reduce the creation and accumulation of dust in their facilities. Many wire producers turned to Blachford Corporation for technological developments to reduce dust creation during steel wire drawing. Blachford has been a valued supplier of innovation and technical solutions throughout the global wire drawing industry for over 50 years. Blachford supplies technically tailored wire drawing Lubricant solutions to some of the world’s largest wire producers, in support of their ever-changing needs. Blachford’s efforts led to the development of our newest technology products: Low Dust Drawing Lubricants. These new dry lubricants reduce the creation of observable dust. They can also yield increased drawing speeds, reduced lubricant consumption, extended die life and potentially improve lubricant film forming and corrosion resistance. Blachford will present a technical paper on “The Potential for Lubricant Dust Explosions in the Wiredrawing Industry” and will share information with customers at the Blachford booth 506 during Interwire 2013.<br /> <br /> Bock Maschinenfabrik GmbH/Howar Equipment Inc.

RMG Model 200 MicroDraw—our in-line wire processing equipment is being used by many manufacturing processes including fastener production, nail making, wire bending, concrete products, steel bar processing, welded products, screw machine parts and wire straighten and cutting.It is apparent that many established fastener manufacturers have moved to technically complex and challenging specialty fasteners and cold headed products, retreating from commodity type fasteners.It is also apparent that some nontraditional users are discovering the economic benefits of in-line or small batch wire drawing for the first time. To serve them we have delivered several of the world’s largest capstan in-line wire drawers, RMG’s Model 1922 (up to 30,000 lb of draw box pull at 100 FPM). These machines are in production feeding headers and cold formers making very large fasteners, automotive components and other strategic products. At the other end of the scale we became aware that some customers desired wire drawers for very fine steel wires and specialty metals. The recently developed RMG MicroDraw 200™ wire drawer was specifically designed to meet the unique needs and requirements of this exciting new niche market.The Model 200 will be familiar to anyone accustomed to in-line wire drawing but we have added several new features that allow us to offer a reasonably priced and modern machine that is well-suited to small batch specialty production environments. A first of its kind integrated and compact motor gearbox provides ample tractive force (up to 600 lb of draw box pull at 100 FPM) and energy efficiency. We’ve included our chordal gripper conveniently into the rim of the D2 capstan. All that is needed is a hex wrench, no gripper head or chain required. The ultra-sensitive floating compensator arm provides precise speed control with even the smallest diameter wire and slowest operation, without marking, deforming or kinking the precision drawn wire exiting the capstan. The draw box and pointer box are interchangeable to ease set-up and changeover. In fact, there are so many innovations; the MicroDraw 200™ creates a new standard for small inline wire drawers in features, utility, safety, performance and long life. Progressive RMG customers are already using the 200 for eyeglass bows, aerospace components and exotic material processing.<br /> <br /> Rosendahl Maschinen GmbH Booth 1050 Austria <br /> <br /> Rosendahl is a leading global supplier of high-tech wire and cable Manufacturing solutions offers first class products and turnkey solutions in the fields of Extrusion, Corrugation, Fiber Optic Cable as well as SZ Stranding.

The new products will be introduced at Interwire 2013 in booth 406. Flexalloy® 9611- 76 and 9612-75 compounds exhibit brittle points of -60°C or lower and provide the oil resistance, flame retardance and wide range of operating temperatures required in such applications as control and instrumentation cables (Type CIC), tray cables (TC) and specialty power cords like those for charging electric vehicles. The new Compounds have property profiles that compare well with those of the rubber, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and other highperformance thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) used in these cables, yet they are more cost-effective, according to Mike Patel, Industry Manager for the Vinyl Division of Teknor Apex. Typical Types CIC and TC uses are in the petrochemical, pulp and paper, steel, cement and mining industries. Cables for these applications are often large and can be difficult to handle—especially at low temperatures—if the jacket materials lack sufficient flexibility. The extremely low brittleness temperatures of our new Flexalloy compounds enable them to comply with stringent cold-weather requirements such as that specified by the CSA’s -40 ºC cable impact test. Flexalloy vinyl elastomers are proprietary formulations that provide the elasticity and low-temperature toughness of TPEs, plus PVC benefits like flame retardancy.

The product line continuously monitors individual spool rotation on planetary, rigid frame and tubular stranding machines. The spool monitoring system reliably detects wire breaks 100% of the time using photo-optic sensors to monitor spool rotation. All sensors and wiring are located outside of the machine’s rotation thereby eliminating the need for slip rings and maintenance. The spool monitoring system detects a broken wire in four or less machine revolutions enabling the machine to be stopped before the broken wire reaches the next section. In most cases the cabling line is stopped before the broken wire reaches the collecting die. Early detection allows for repair and preservation of the finished cable. Users Of the system report significant reduction and elimination of material scrap and short lengths. The exhibit will also include YMC’s strand counting system newly enhanced for fine wire applications at high rotational speeds. Applications range from power cable to fine wire. Manufacturers stranding insulated wire, glass or textile rely on the YMC system because traditional grounding techniques do not work with nonconductive materials.<br /> <br /> ZUMBACH Electronics Corp.
