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 a superior durability at elevated temperatures.
- It is much more stress resistant and breaks less often. Enables much higher cuttings speeds in many cases. All this leads to much higher productivity of machines and significantly reduced downtime of machines.
- Also, it shows a 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.
