Our wire rope annealing machines twists the wire rope off by annealing. Current is applied to heat the wire when the rope is clamped. When the rope is red hot; it is then twisted. After twisting, the rope is slightly rounded and the wires will not unwind. Please compare the annealed and the square cut ends below
By increasing the distance between the clamping chucks the wire end becomes more pointed, e.g. ideal for excavating machines etc.
We manufacture both types, manual and automatic annealing machines.
