KOCH at WIRE 2016
Achieving success economically, safely and quickly: Trade fair highlights of Ernst Koch GmbH & Co. KG
Koch will present future technologies at WIRE trade fair – the focus will be placed on highly developed machines and an innovative acoustic emission analysis for increasing the quality of products.
Koch is one of the leading manufacturers of wire drawing machines – and will prove this once again at WIRE 2016 with a sophisticated portfolio of machines and quality-improving innovative processes. In Hall 10 Booth F22 / H39, the company will exhibit a technically highly developed drawing line with a modular design. It is comprised of a multiple-drawing line from the KGT series as well as a wire pay-off and a spooler for the collection of the wire. The line produces steel qualities with low carbon content (0.12%) on a machine with five drafts. In actual operation, the line is then complemented by nine drawing-blocks and includes high-quality pretreatment of the wire. This constellation enables a drawing speed of around 50 m/s. These are top results that make highly economical production possible.
A further highlight at the Koch booth will be a modern system for the continuous control of wire quality. Using acoustic emission analysis, the forming process during operation is permanently analyzed. Even minor anomalies are detected, thus guaranteeing high-quality production. The high-level detection of faults, as well as the increase in manufacturing speed, are the benefits of this technology – the use of which Koch is promoting heavily.
In addition to technical highlights, for Managing Director Jochen Koch value orientation is also crucial for Koch’s international success: “As a family-run company our work is more to us than just a business. We put great emphasis on stable relations that are based on appreciation, both with our customers and our members of staff. The fact that we strongly respect values such as fairness, reliability and integrity in our business relations is appreciated by our customers – and they also benefit, with high quality and comprehensive service.”
