Wire rod mills

A wide range of wire of different diameters and quality is rolled from billets in wire rod mills.
Wire rolling stands are arranged alternately in a horizontal and vertical position. The throughput speed of the rolling stock increases up to 120 m/s in the finishing block in accordance with the reduction in the cross section of the rolling stock which occurs from rolling stand to rolling stand.

The following bearing designs are used in wire rod mills: Single row and multi-row cylindrical roller bearings, double row tapered roller bearings, spherical roller bearings, as well as angular contact ball bearings
