Steel wire is let off from
let-off drum under controlled tension and runs through wire
straightening unit and passes through the machine, pulled by 4 Nos.
Grooved pulleys located on four corners of the machine. Totally 24 nos.
blade, 12 Nos. on either side shave the wires to generate thin fibers
of the wool. Wire after shaving is pulled by wire pulling arrangement
and is wound on the wind-up drum located on the same side of let-off
drum. Steel wool from different plates is combined and wound on the
other side by reciprocating guide. The remaining wire is passed through
the machine three to four times till it has been cut down to the minimum
diameter. Lint and fumes generated while wire is shaved are exhausted by
suction blower through cyclone dust collector to remove dust particles.
The blades become blunt while
shaving and are easily and quickly exchanged. Blunt blades can be
reground, on blade grinding machine.
Two ends of wire while
changing let-off drum are butt welded on wire butt splicing machine.
