Milling of Steel for the Wire Mills Industry

At N.E.T. & Die, Inc., we have built our reputation by providing customized high quality steel fabrications that provide our customers with decades of reliable, low maintenance use. We efficiently and cost effectively manufactured the main frame of the wire strander highlighted here for a customer in the wire mill industry.

Constructed from hot rolled steel, our technicians utilized the advanced features of our Asquith Butler HE4000 machining center to machine this structure after fabrication. This multi-axis CNC controlled mill, which features 80" Z-axis vertical travel, 42" X- axis spindle travel, 240" Y-horizontal travel and a 40 tool automatic tool changer, gave us the capacity to machine the large components with accuracy of ±.0005" and a 32 surface finish. Our welding team, certified to AWS D1.1, also played a vital role in completing this project.

Rigorous measurement and inspection at all critical points in the fabrication process ensured we met the customer expectations for quality and performance. If you are interested in learning more about this project or our range of fabrication capabilities, contact us today.
