Profile / Shaped Wires

Shaped / Profile Wires are also known as Solid Profiles. Shaped Wires are manufactured from High Carbon, Stainless Steel as well as from Low Carbon wires. These wires are custom built to suit customers’ actual requirements. It allows achieving complex geometries and cross-sections. These wires can be supplied both in Annealed and Drawn finish.

Few Major Applications of Shaped Wires

These are made from wires shaped in Square, Rectangular or Trapezoidal cross section. These wires are supplied in drawn finish condition. Both Stainless Steel (AISI 304 & 316) and High Carbon Steel generally conforming to EN-42 can be used as base material.

Cross Section Size (mm) UTS (Kg/mm2) Edges Taper Angle
Square 0.70 X 0.70  (min.) 8.0 X 8.0 (max.) 60 to 90 Round, Sharp  

–          NA

Rectangular/ Trapezoidal 0.90 X 0.50 (min.) 12.0 X 7.0 (max.)   60 to 90   Round, Sharp   0 or 3 to 5 or as desired

Tolerance on Thickness: +/- 0.05 mm and Width: +/- 0.05 mm

 

The spring washer wires are supplied in 380-500mm dia with coil weight of 50-300 kg. The coils are packed with polythene and then Hessian and tagged properly.

Circlips Wire

These have Square or Rectangular cross sections manufactured from high carbon steel generally conforming to EN-42& EN42J. The wires are custom made so as to fulfill the wiring needs of clients. These wires are supplied in Annealed & Annealed Pinch Pass finish. These wires are used in the manufacture of lock circlips used for locking shafts.

Cross Section UTS (Kg/mm2) Edges Taper Angle
Square 60 to 90 Sharp NA
Rectangular 60 to 90 Sharp NA
Trapezoidal 60 to 90 Sharp Half to Two degree or as desired

Tolerance on Thickness : +/- 0.05 mm and Width: +/- 0.10 mm

The Circlip wires are supplied in Coil ID 380-500mm with coil weight of 50-300 kg. These coils are oiled, packed with polythene and Hessian and finally tagged properly.
