The 2-high rolling mills of the WSR type differ from the usual 2-high machines available for wire in their higher stiffness and the resultant higher precision of the flat wire produced.
Unique to the WSR Fuhr rolling mills is the option of oscillating the rolls continuously crosswise to the wire. This obviates the otherwise usual changing of the track and the working life of the rolls increases many times. The degree of utilization increases.
Rolling mills of WSR type have extremely low maintenance requirements. All components are protected from corrosion by galvanization.
