Webinar - Cleaning and Coating of Wire and Rod, Part I
Date: December 12, 2013
Location: Wire Association International Inc

Title: Cleaning and Coating of Wire and Rod, Part I
Date: Thursday, December 12, 2013
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

Presenter: Ed Davis, Chemetall, USA

This is the first of a three-part webinar series on cleaning and coating of ferrous wire and rod. Part I presents the fundamentals of cleaning, pickling, and coating of ferrous wire and rod in preparation for drawing and processing. Proper control and handling in these areas ensures quality of the finished product. The design of these processes impacts the economics of the operation. It is imperative that rather than individual stages, this department should be viewed as a whole as it is critical to success.

Part II deals with zinc phosphate processes and the advantages and limitations. Part III covers specialty coatings such as salt carriers, lubricants, dry film polymers, and new technologies on the horizon.

This three-part program is intended for operators, managers, and process engineers involved in this phase of operations.

Ed Davis is the Cold Forming Technical Market Manager for Chemetall in Canton, Ohio, USA. He has been involved in the wire and tube industry for the last decade. His experience includes the "hands on" work in designing new lines and implementing new technologies. Prior to joining Chemetall, he spent 18 years with the U.S. Navy as a nuclear and cryogenic engineer.
