WILCO Mechanical Descaling Machinery

All WILCO mechanical descaling systems will descale and clean hot-rolled carbon steel wire rod in preparation for wire drawing. All models are intended for installation inline with your wire drawing machine between the rod payoff and ripper die.
Everything starts with the WILCO model 310 reverse bend scale breaker, common to all models in the WILCO product family. Three sheaves, each with solid tungsten carbide wear rings, bend the wire rod in a controlled manner to flex and elongate the ductile steel rod while the inflexible oxide scale breaks loose from the base metal. Secondary cleaning of scale fines, required for any wire drawing operation, immediately follows scale breaking and may be accomplished by various models of WILCO cleaning systems. From basic air jet to advanced automatic wire brushing, let us help you select the WILCO descaling system best suited to your unique wire drawing needs.

WILCO Lubricant Applicators

Product Specifics

WILCO Lubricant Applicators are a wire drawing aid designed to apply more lubricant on the rod or wire surface. More lubricant assures smoother, more efficient wire drawing operations. Best performance is achieved when using with dry powdered soap lubricants. WILCO Lubricant Applicators can be used in each die box of multi-draft machines or just in those die boxes where brightening wire indicates inadequate lubrication. Applicators are especially effective when used in the first draft to establish maximum lubrication. WILCO Lubricant Applicators are the only production tool available that adds lubricant to the drawn wire surface after the ripper draft.

Solve Wire Drawing Problems Such As:
• Die Scratching
• Low Die Life
• Wire Breaks

Increase Productivity and Quality Through:
• Higher Draw Speeds
• Extended Die Life
• Better Wire Finish

WILCO Pressure Die Holders

WILCO Pressure Die Holders are one of the most simple yet effective means for increasing lubrication during the wire drawing process. The WILCO pressure die approach is based on the familiar double-die concept using standard off the shelf wire drawing dies from your existing stock.

About us

Company details

Wire Lab Company specializes in the design, engineering and manufacture of mechanical descaling systems for processing ferrous hot rolled wire rod.  Six (6) standard models of WILCO Mechanical Descaling Systems are available allowing the customer to choose the WILCO mechanical descaling system which best matches their processing requirement.  On display at Wire Dusseldorf will be our widely used Model 1250 Automatic Brush Descaling System which combines the proven WILCO model 310 reverse bend scale breaker in conjunction with the WILCO automatic wire brushing machine.  (8) commercially available steel wire brushes completely surround the wire rod surface to produce an especially clean wire rod particularly since the wire brush pressure is constantly monitored by the machine's electrical controls and sdjusted automatically with no input from the wire drawing machine operator.  WILCO wire drawing aids include the simple to use Lubricant Applicators and straightforward double-die Pressure Die Holders will be displayed as well.
