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.
