Metal Wire Drawing - Saint-Gobain Coating Solutions

Industry: Metal Wire Drawing - Coated Part: Capstan

Problem: When the wear is too severe and affects the original size of the capstan, the performances are altered, then creating problems:

  • Bad balancing, parasite noise at high frequency increases.
  • Wear increases exponentially.
  • Risk of production shutdown due to the only capstan.

Coating Solution: We offer three solutions that can be applied with the Master Jet gun: 

  • ASM Steel Spraying: This is a low-cost solution providing a medium wear resistance. ASM steel doesn't require "spray and fuse".
  • ROCDUR 6740 Spraying: This solution provides an excellent wear resistance - especially when the capstan is drawing big wires. This solution requires spraying and fusing of the material.
  • ROKIDE C Spraying: This solution provides an excellent wear resistance especially when the capstan is drawing small copper wires.
