PlasmaANNEALER

PlasmaANNEALER is a heat treatment machine for ferrous and non-ferrous wire, rod, tube, and strip. Plasma annealing is equivalent to tube/strand annealing, but with a much greater output. The flame (plasma) in PlasmaANNEALER is directed into the wire with the help of electric field. This allows PlasmaANNEALER to command energy efficiency to up to 90%, whilst providing the output up to 20 times higher than the traditional tube annealers. Inert atmosphere in PlasmaANNEALER is selected to provide surface treatment (cleaning/degreasing), simultaneously during the annealing process.





Summary of PlasmaANNEALER benefits

  • Up to 20x greater output than tube/strand annealer
  • Low process and maintenance costs
  • Wire surface cleanliness and good surface finish due to controlled atmosphere
  • Accuracy of wire softness
  • Inert atmosphere annealing = no need for acid cleaning
