Ultra-hard ceramics in guide rollers
Condition: High degree of hardness, wear resistance required
To be able to manufacture metal wire of high quality over the long-time using, we switched from metal as the material used in guide rollers to high-hardness ceramics to achieve higher wear resistance.
Improved long-term metal wire quality
Advanced ceramic are harder than metals, there was less occurrence of scratching as a result of guide roller surface wear. This resulted in less scratching from contact between the metal wire and guide rollers, contributing to higher quality production.
Furthermore, with improved wear resistance, rollers required less frequent replacement, alleviating maintenance work.
