WIRE 2024

It’s that time again: the WIRE trade fair in Düsseldorf is taking place this year from April 15 to 19.

Schmidt Maschinenbau GmbH will once again be at the booth in Hall 11 /A59 with the latest machines for wire production.

We look forward to your visit!

Ultrafine wire drawing machine with inline rolling mill

Schmidt machines are known for their excellent quality and durability. The sturdy machine housings are also able to support additional attachments without any problems. As an example, here is a special application of the ultra-fine drawing machine E10, with which wire in the diameter range from 10µm to 50µm can be drawn and then formed into a flat strip in an integrated rolling mill.

For this purpose, a mill from Roder Engineering in Switzerland was mounted on the drawing machine and combined with an ultra-fine spooler from the SM36 series. The manufacturing process can be done in three ways:

  1. Wire drawing only and spooling onto cylindrical or biconical spools
  2. wire drawing with downstream inline rolling and spooling of the flat wire onto cylindrical spools
  3. only wire pay-off from the drawing machine for flat wire rolling and rewinding

The spooler for the flat wire after the roller is a traversing spool type, and the controoled spooling tension can be adjusted in the range of 3 to 30 cN. This highly sensitive spooler operates without dancers, to reduce the number of deflection wheels. The entire system offers extremely flexible use for a wide range of wire and flat strip variations.


New non-slip single capstan drawing machine ES355-6

With the use of the latest drive technology, the drawing of high-quality special wires becomes a success. The ES355 slipless drawing machine does not require dancers, resulting in a minimum draw-in length and short set-up time. Wires from 0.5 mm to 5.0 mm are drawn with highest surface quality at speeds up to 6 m/s. Drawing dies from 0 – 21% elongation can be used. The variable adaptation of the drawing steps to the drawing die inserts makes optimum use of the drive power. Thus, the best drawing die sequence can be used for each wire material.

Applications include copper, silver-plated copper, silver-plated copper-clad aluminum (CCA) , silver-plated copper-clad stainless steel (CCSS), and many other materials. Due to the complete design in stainless steel, all drawing agents can be used. The 355 mm capstans are carbide coated and partially immersed in drawing lube, the drawing die inlet holes are sprayed with high pressure to wash out material deposits.

The drawing section is complemented by modularly designed pay off, dancers and spoolers, allowing the use of coils up to 560 mm in diameter. A coil pay off is also available.

slip reduced single capstan drawing machine

Schmidt Maschinenbau GmbH Gummersbach, a reliable partner of the wire industry for decades as a proven supplier of drawing machines and winding systems, has developed the prototype of a single disk drawing machine of the ES series.

The idea is to expand the product range, which so far includes conventional cone drawing machines and dancer-controlled, slip-free and modular single-disk drawing machines of the WDM series, by an ES series of drawing machines.

The classic cone drawing machine is the cheapest solution, but it has two major disadvantages. On the one hand, the thickest wire runs onto the smallest conical disc, which also has the greatest slippage due to the sliding wire drawing and, on the other hand, is characterized by a fixed gradation (wire extension).

For some years now, Schmidt has been offering a modular wire drawing machine of the type 20-2, a drawing machine that can be combined with 1, 2 or 3 modules. Each module is driven individually. The advantages of this construction are that each module can be designed with an individual wire extension (6, 11, 13 and 17% are currently available) and the control electronics reduce the slip built up in the module at the transitions between the individual modules to approx. 2% can be reduced. A classic cone drawing machine would show a slip of approx. 80% after 31 strands, whereas with this concept the input slip can be less than 20%.

The single disc drawing machines of the WDM series consist of individual modules that can be combined with up to 11 pulls. Each module is individually driven and almost slip-free due to the dancer control. Any electronically selectable wire extensions offer maximum flexibility. However, not every wire product offers the possibility to compensate for this concept in price.

That is why Schmidt has developed a new ES series which, thanks to the individually driven drawing pulleys, offers the possibility of an individually electronically selectable wire extension. The modern electronics and software also offer the possibility of minimizing slip. The mechanical structure is reduced to the essentials, which is why we are convinced that we can offer a technologically and economically interesting solution.
