Brass Rod Manufacturing Finishing Process
Pickled coil or straight rod is transferred to finishing machines, where it is cold drawn to the finish size requested, cut to length, straightened, chamfered and bundled.
Cold drawing creates:
- Correct diameter
- Excellent surface condition
- Hardness of material
Eddy Current testing equipment verifies that the brass rod surface meets industry standards.
Brass rod is cut to length: 10 – 16 foot.
In Project 400, the mill added additional finish lines, which provides production flexibility and additional production capacity to meet customer needs.
