Fine Stainless Steel Wire Can Now Be Annealed In-line with Drawing

It has been widely accepted that stainless steel and nickel alloy wire cannot be annealed quickly enough to go in-line with a drawing or rolling machine. This is now a thing of the past. Plasmait has introduced a new PlasmaANNEALER that is first in the world to anneal fine austenitic stainless steel and nickel alloys wire at the speed of drawing. This new concept allows for a radical increase of continuous annealing speeds that can surpass 20m/s in the case of fine wire sizes of austenitic stainless steels. Continue reading
