Aluminium Wire Rod Manufacturing Plant
Highest mechanical specifications of wire rod
These plants, developed in recent years, comprise a foundry where smelted aluminium alloy is fed into the continuous casting and rolling machine. Once rolled, the metal is cold-drawn and then rolled into a coil. The process requires heat treatment, which can be:
• Intermediate annealing , to remove deformation stresses and permit the wiredrawing process to continue.
• Final annealing or hardening , to improve the material’s mechanical features.
At GHI, we design and supply the furnaces and auxiliary equipment used in the production process, during both smelting and treatment.
Wire rod manufacturing process
Value proposition of this plant
Elimination of stresses and deformations using intermediate annealing.
Final annealing or hardening optimizes the mechanical features of the material.
Quality and uniformity of the aluminium recovered, through an agitation system using porous plugs or other systems in holding furnaces.
Jointly engineered by all the stakeholders in the process, the aim being to find the solution that best meets the customer’s current and future needs.
A management and control system which permits process variables to be monitored, thus offering possibilities for control and continuous improvement.
A high degree of process automation permitting high production levels and minimum human involvement.
Corrective, preventive and predictive maintenance; SAT and Services 4.0.
