PC Strand and PC wire lines

Eurodraw is one of the few world producers of PC wire and PC strand lines for low relaxation concrete reinforcement.

PC strand lines:

PC strand is used as a reinforcement product for concrete beams and precast concrete structures. It is a high carbon product that is composed by 7 wires that are stranded together and then stretched ad heat treated in order to obtain the low relaxation property.

These lines are available in three different spool sizes and with different capacity:

The CLR 900, the CRL 1120 and the CRL 1250.  The lines differ by the possibility of loading a spool of 900, 1120 or 1250 mm. The heat treatment of the strand is performed by an induction furnace that can be sized up to 1000 kW in power.

The strand is rewound on a special lay by lay spooler in order to obtain a perfectly wound package.

PC wire lines:

PC wire is a similar product of PC strand but it is composed of a single wire. The production process differs only by the fact that there is no stranding.  PC wire is used as a reinforcement of concrete railroad tiles and can be supplied in coils or pre cut  and threaded bars. In this case as well the heat treatment is performed by an induction furnace that can be sized up to 650 kW in power.

PC wires lines can be supplied with horizontal axis pulling capstans that can be equipped also with an automatic threading device or with vertical axis capstans.
