News & Innovations


The first double-head sanding machine model SEZ-4-300 was gone into operation in a welding wire pre-treatment line with KOCH for an international major customer in Germany.
WiTechs has improved this model with the 2-roll flyer system (2-RFS), which has been proven in the SEZ-2-450 for more than two years.
It´s working with the same external dimensions and the technical data, such as max. wire entry speed of 2.4m/s with two different sanding belts.

Advantages of the 2-roll flyer system are:

  • less vibration during machine operation
  • larger loop and contact surface of the sanding belts
  • less wear of the roller bearings by the support arm
  • better sand belt tracking by increased roll dia. with 12% larger belt contact surface
  • more stable roller guidance
  • compatibility of flyers and flyer drives with SEZ-2-450
  • sanding belt dimensions of 1.440 x 300mm (l x w)

Optimized wire rod descaling through the further developed Model WBE
  • Suitable for wire rod descaling and surface cleaning of heattreated wire due to linear controlled brushes
  • Wire rod dia. from 2.0 - 10.0mm with WBE-4L / 2 pairs of brushes and up to 16.0mm with WBE-6L / 3 pairs of brushes
  • Flexible and independent use through self-sufficient control on board operated by Siemens® touch panel
  • Automatically re-adjustment of brushes until complete working time due to the linear control
  • Precise positioning of the brushes is possible thanks to the sensor-controlled linear drives
  • Long lifetime of brushings due to a high efficency degree
  • State of the art machines and brushes technology from a single source!

Inline Pre-Treatment Solution for P.C. Strandwire

WiTechs Mechanical Descaling Equipment and Electro-Phosphating Line (Ephos®) from STAKU

The wire rod is subsequently propelled by a horizontal wire rod pay-off system in a combined pull-in, bending and straightening machine (BDM-2S / EG). The scale layer is broken and the wire is straightened without cracks. The wire pull in is considerably facilitated by this system concept.

In the following double-head sanding descaler (SEZ-6-302S), the wire will be cleaned and surface pre-treated for the further coating process through two sanding belts with min. 98% cleanliness result.

The next wire preparation step is done by an electro-phosphating plant (Ephos®) Inline from STAKU.

Production range:
Wire inlet ø8.0 – 15.0mm
Wire outlet drawing speed up to 10m/s
Wire inlet speed up to 1.5m/s

For example:
Wire inlet ø13.0mm
Finished wire ø5.0mm
Wire inlet speed 1.2m/s
Wire outlet drawing speed 8m/s

Mechanical descaling with inline phosphating at the same drawing speeds as conventionally pickled wires without sacrificing quality.

Advantages of this electrolytic process compared to classical chemical phosphating:

  • Bath temperature only 45 ° C instead of 80 ° C
  • Sludge-free process
  • 33% less zinc by replacement with calcium
  • 40% lower chemical requirements due to compact and fine crystalline layer
  • 3 seconds coating time compared to 7 minutes for classic procedures
  • Elimination of highly toxic activation chemicals
  • High binding forces prevent shearing during forming
  • No waste of old acid, use of economy flushing technology reduces
    wastewater by 40%
  • No after-treatment with soaps, lime or similar
