By adding the profile rolling machine WN16 Fuhr has enlarged its portfolio on the upper side. The new type WN16 allows shape rolling of steel wires up to 900 mm² from round wires of maximum 40 mm diameter.
The biggest stand so far the WN14 was limited to shapes of 600 mm² from round wires of maximum 32 mm diameter.
By approaching this dimensional range, cold rolling enters application fields which have been domain of hot rolling or bar drawing. Compared to those processes cold rolling offers the best of both: Precision and productivity.
