Tecnopress wire heater

Tecnopress wire heaterTecnopress wire heater. The Wire Heater SCF is a unit designed to pre-heat stainless steel wire of 3 to 12 mm diameter before cold heading. The pre-heating up to 300°C, is carried out by converting the electric power into heat onto the wire only, thus providing a uniform distribution of the temperature and improving the material plasticity. Surely a clever alternative to both the old-fashioned dangerous and costly gas system which cannot guarantee any proper deformation of the material, and the quite expensive induction heaters. - Lowest power consumption and low power required. - Duration of the tools is increased by 45% compared to the older gas systems and by 80% compared to cold forming. Improved wire plasticity and uniform material deformation. - Lowest material waste and machine downtime due to tool breakage. - This unit is provided to heat the wire up to 300°C by displaying the relevant value. - The use of lowest voltage electric current permits to eliminate any costs, inefficiencies and dangers of the older gas systems. - The wire heater is a stand-alone unit – separated from the cold header – and can be set up quickly and easily. - Whenever stopping the working process ,the generated heat is immediately balanced and adjusted to the required temperature, thus eliminating any need of stress control and over-heating of the wire.
