Cutting wires for machine cutting of expandable polystyrol (EPS).
We supply the following variants:
Type 2000 Ni-Cr wire copper coated
Approved industry standard alloy for many hot cutting processes.
Good combination of tensile strength and elongation. The copper coating enables a good conduction of process heat.
Type 2001 Ni-Cr-Ti wire copper coated
High performance alloy with most superior durability at elevated temperatures.
- Much more stress resistant and breaks less often.
Enables much higher cuttings speeds in many cases.
Allows much higher productivity of machines and significantly reduced downtime of machines.
- Much lower elongation at elevated temperatures.
This leads to a better accuracy in cutting, in particular for longer wire lengths.
Type 2010 Ni-Cr wire (uncoated)
Similar alloy to type 2000, but without copper coating.
Due to this heat conduction is not as good as copper coated variant type 2000.
May be used as a more inexpensive alternative when machinability and durability is less important.
Type 2015 Ni-Al wire (uncoated)
Depending on machine type this can be a better alternative.
Standard presentation is on spools K 80 with 0.5 kg unless otherwise specified.
Samples can be provided on request. Please feel free to contact us.
