Not Ready to Rewind Your Business?, Perhaps It’s Rewound Time

Made of carbon steel, annealed wire might be single-handedly responsible for making the world go round. That might be a bit of an overstatement, but truthfully, we would live in a different world if it did not include wire. From manufacturing and packaging to shipping and transport, wire is used in many different ways, across many different industries.

There are many different types of wire manufactured today. And they are not all created equally. That is not to say that one sort of wire is superior to another; it all depends on the end purpose of the wire. (Although, different manufacturing methods may render one batch of wire better than another of the same kind of wire.) Black annealed wire is used a wide variety of industries, including construction and agriculture and requirements can vary widely between them.

Black annealed wire gets its name from the annealing process, and, rather unsurprisingly, from the colour of the wire once it has been processed. Annealing is simply a process by which drawn wire is heated to a certain temperature for an extended period of time. Wire is annealed in order to return certain properties to it after drawing; in this case, annealing enhances both strength and flexibility. And, although the name, black annealed wire, suggests a rather specific product, this is hardly the case. It is a broad term; individual products are known by the way they are cut and packaged for delivery to clients.  

Main Types of Black Annealed Wire

Because black annealed wire is both flexible and sturdy, it serves many different purposes in many different industries. The type of wire required is determined by its end use. For example, formers, which are delivered in rather large coils on their own stands, are primarily used in the packaging, recycling and waste management industries. Cut bar forms are usually used in the galvanising industry, which means that this product requires strict control and manufacturing regulations as they are used to dunk steel and other metals into baths of extraordinarily hot zinc and zinc oxide. Steel stockholders typically make use of catchweight coils, which are used for both storage and transport of steel; these are large, loose coils that can be easily transported from one side of a factory to another. If a particular project requires human intervention and tying, black annealed wire is cut and looped so that labourers do not spend precious time fiddling with fasteners.

Throughout these industries, especially waste management, as well as in agricultural circles, rewound coils are the go to format. These are created to work with automated baling machines, for fast and accurate bailing.

Black Annealed Wire – Rewound Coils

Typical Uses

Things need to be grouped. Things may sound like far too general a term, but that is because nearly every thing fits into this category. Truly. And once grouped, things typically need to be either stored or transported. Sometimes these things are destined for further manufacturing and some things are destined for consumer use. And, once things have been used, they need to be transported to waste or recycling facilities (which starts the process all over again). In addition, some things are easier to group and transport than others – and this is precisely where rewound coils of black annealed wire comes into play.

Strangely, rewound coils typically play a role at the beginning – and the end – of the lifespan of many ¬things. This is because primary uses for this product are in packaging, waste management, and recycling industries. It is designed for use with automatic baling machines, meaning that when there is a need for rewound coils, typically a large quantity is needed. In addition, precision is wildly essential, as even the smallest deviation can cause expensive issues with the baling machines that use these coils.

Sizing and Packaging

D R Baling Wire Manufacturers produce rewound coils in a variety of sizes. All sizes and coils are manufactured according to customer specifications. Typically sizing ranges from 2mm to 4mm diameter wires, wound in coils of 20-25 kilograms or 20-45 kilograms. For easier transport, rewound coils of black annealed wire are shrink wrapped, then packed in pallets.

With the design and installation of a bespoke rewound machine in 2013, D R Baling Wire Manufacturers have been able to quadruple their rewound coil output. This has several consumer benefits. Because D R Baling are able to produce rewound coils faster, customers receive their orders sooner than previously anticipated. And, with the ability to fill more orders with superior results, time is not the only savings clients can expect; reduced costs, which are passed on clients, was one of the main reasons that D R Baling undertook the design of this incredible machine. And bespoke machinery is hardly the end of the line for the company; they have a dedication to precision and quality which means that continued development and innovation is always on the cards. If it has to do with wire, there is a strong chance D R Baling Wire Manufactures are working on it.

To see how Black Annealed Wire can benefit your company, get in touch!

With so many things, and so many uses for rewound coils of black annealed wire, it only makes sense that it is sold in a variety of formats. After all, each type of baling machine will have a different purpose; it follows that varying strengths and lengths of wire will be required for each one. Figuring out your needs might just be one of the most challenging aspects of any industry. Fortunately, D R Baling Wire Manufacturers are ready to assist, regardless of the baling machine you own and its uses.
