Rod is fed from the payoff system into the Descaler, where the wire passes through sharp angle bends around pulleys in two planes to remove the scale. The wire then enters the lubricant applicator which applies an even film of lubricant on to the wire. The lubricated wire is then fed into the profiling section, where a roller cassette reduces the wire diameter, increasing the tensile strength. The wire is then fed through a set of profiling rollers, rolling the reinforcing profile onto the wire. Once profiled, the rod is then sent through the spinner or rollers to straighten. The profiled and straightened wire is then cut to length by the flying shear and is discharged into the runout and subsequent receiving trays.
