The main process of steel wire production includes selection of raw materials, cleaning of iron oxide scale, drying, coating treatment, heat treatment, drawing, coating treatment, etc..
Material selection see steel wire raw material.
The descaling descaling of wire rod or the middle line blank surface, the purpose is to prevent iron oxide damage when drawing die and wire surface, reduce the drawing force for the subsequent coating or coating the surface condition of well prepared and reduce drawing friction. There are two kinds of methods to remove iron oxide scale: chemical method and mechanical method. Chemical descaling and mechanical descaling of wire rod are seen.
