Our products

Product category: Galvanizing lines

Complete ecological galvanising lines

During the galvanisation process, the wires are submerged into molten zinc during a set period of time to prevent corrosion and increase its useful life. This process is called hot-dip galvanizing. As the coating metal, pure zinc is still used, and nowadays there are also several zinc alloys (Zn-Al, Zn-Al-Mg…) that provide galvanic protection with enhanced properties.

Based on more than three decades of process expertise, DRUIDS develops and delivers complete galvanising lines for multiple wires with a completely new concept and numerous advantages.

DRU-Gal complete galvanising lines for wire are the ideal technology for expanding production capacity or replacing existing traditional lines.

  • 3x to 4x increase of speed and production.
  • 50 to 65% less energy consumption.
  • Individual process parameters for every single wire.
  • Smart process control 4.0
  • No hazardous chemicals.
  • 100% safer with improved operation ergonomics, doubles the operator’s productivity.
  • 35 to 50% lower CAPEX.
  • Up to 70% lower OPEX.
  • No environmental impact, no fumes, no wastes, no chemicals.
  • More than 15 years of experience and 3,5 million tons of galvanised wire produced with this technology.
  • Up to 80% less zinc inventory.
  • Up to 60% less intermediate product inventory.
  • Non-operation expenses nearly zero.
  • Instantaneous restart permits working single shift o stop on weekends.
  • Direct application of Zn and Zn-Al / Zn-Al-Mg alloys.
  • No need for a waste-water, acid, flux or fume treatment plant.
  • Short delivery and short installation times.

Product category: Cold rolling lines, Single-wire drawing machines (intermediate, fine and superfine wire drawing)

Roll drawing line

This is the non-plus-ultra of the production of wires, doubling the advantages of using cassettes and additional features to do even more with your wire factory.

DRU-Wet roll drawing lines add numerous advantages, among them:

  • Production of 100% clean wire, without any residual lubricant on the surface.
  • Fast cassette change, increases the production and availability of the equipment, especially if many different final diameters are produced.
  • Lower investment cost (CAPEX)
  • Faster and simpler installation.
  • Highly optimized for DRUIDS’ fast and eco galvanising process.

DRU-Roll roll drawing cassettes

DRU-Roll roll drawing cassettes can be fitted onto existing lines from most manufacturers.

There are significant competitive advantages of using roll drawing cassettes:

  • Increase the wire production because rolls’ life is from 100 to 200 times longer than the life of the drawing dies. Equipment availability increases by 4 to 10%.
  • The friction and rolling forces are less severe on the wire than the die drawing process, resulting in an increase of production because of the reduction of wire breaks. Equipment availability increases by 8 to 12%.
  • Less friction also means lower pulling force or less energy consumption per ton of wire produced. The lower pulling force permits a higher line speed, increasing the production of wire by 5 to 10%.
  • DRUIDS’ roll drawing cassette has a unique cooling system in the lubrication circuit, reducing the temperature developed in the wire due to the deformation. Cooler process temperature produces better wire quality and allows using high carbon and alloy materials.
  • Roll drawing cassettes are less sensitive to wire rod quality, such as small surface imperfections or surface rust, and mill scale. This may reduce the raw material cost and preparation cost sensibly.
  • Less drawing lubricant consumption means direct product cost reduction of 10 to 12% and cleaner final wire.

About us

Company details

Since its beginning more than three decades ago, DRUIDS Process Technology continues pushing the limits of innovation. The company has developed capabilities in simulation, high-performance design engineering, control systems and electronics and intimate knowledge of processes of the wire and metallurgy, gained after decades of close cooperation with academia and the most relevant players in the industry.

The company was initially formed in 1987, back then AUTOMAT Industrial and led by F. Xavier Ayesa, manufacturing machines, robotic systems and industrial automation. After moving into the new location in Granollers, near Barcelona, in 2003, the company was also able to focus on the scientific aspects of the production and coating of wires, expanding their offering of complete process lines for the wire industry.

DRUIDS is now developing process technologies and equipment to produce and process ferrous wire and for the transformation of metals, including roll drawing of wires, thermal treatments, hot-dip galvanising and coil packing. We design, manufacture and deliver complete green factories to produce ferrous wires.
