The quality of wire steel Indonesia has reached the global standard in producing methods as well its finished products. The wire steel is a product of long wire made form steel, which comes in rolls. This long and thins rod are joint tight together and almost looked like a steel rope. Hence this wire steel is also called a wire ropes.
Wire steel or wire rod is a rolled product, produced from billet. The cross section has a round or rectangular shape. Cold forming, or drawing process may achieve the fine section. The wire rod is used to produce different kind of product. Depending on how is form cold or heat treated, such wore is use for producing wire ropes, barbed wire, wire mesh and even nails. Some wire is also made into springs, welded wire mesh and reinforcement wire. The wire diameter is ranging from 9mm (rod) and 14 mm to 45 mm (bar in coils)
The Quality of Indonesia Wire Steel - Wire steel however, has its limitation. Wire steel would break off because of many reasons. In many case it will require some study and even research in details on the maximum use, mechanical use and even environmental affects. Some steel wire needs treatment in the methods and even process to meet its needs. But some limitation is already known to be the main cause of wire steel damages, these probability is explained as follow;
- Tension: excessive load or large object use to hold directly to the wire. When used frequently and occurs shock (sudden tension) due to the slacks or when objects is removed.
- Wear and tear: Wire break up due to the depletion of the surface of the wire in direct contact with other equipment. Wire experiencing continuous friction.
- Exhaustion: Wire break up generally split lengthwise if used continuously. Often wire bents after passing sheave or drum with a smaller diameter so that the elasticity of steel wire rope exceeds the maximum limit.
- Corrosion: Surface corrosion of steel wire could include with the three factors above. This evidently happens if the wire operates without the use of lubrication. Corrosion is the most dangerous because it can damage the steel wire rope from the inside.
- Cuts: generally resulted form crammed between two components where steel wire rope moving.
Most company that produce wire steel Indonesia, have provision as well as supervision to achieve high-grade products. To insure high quality standards such as maintenance and inspections on steel wire ropes production, check their methods or processes that has ISO grade by the company’s internal regulation as Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
