CALIBRATED WIRE FOR COLD HEADING AND FORGING
The main material for fasteners and metalware products is wire cleaned of oil, chips, corrosion and dirt. External and internal defects in the wire significantly affect the quality of the product. Burrs make the wire unsuitable for fasteners and metalware. Manufacturers of fasteners and metalware in many countries constantly face the problem of finding suitable raw materials in the post-Soviet space. In Taiwan, the quality of raw materials and metal is controlled at the state level. China Steel Corp., the largest cooperation in Taiwan, is the main supplier of wire, raw materials and supplies for the leading manufacturers of fasteners, providing quality wire rod at reasonable prices.
Wires for fasteners, hardware and parts are usually round, rarely hexagonal, square, trapezoidal or oval in steel, aluminum, copper, nickel, titanium, zinc, their alloys and other metals. Bimetallic and polymetallic wires are also produced. Wire is used for planting of fasteners, hardware and special parts.
