Wire Drawers

Used with cold-forming equipment, Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Wire Drawing Machines draw and coat hot-rolled, pickled, and limed- or phosphate-coated rod as the rod feeds into the heading. The cold-drawn stock produced not only exceeds commercially available stock in accuracy, but also possesses numerous other desirable properties, such as straightness, clean coating and no age hardness.

  • With suitable mechanical provisions, Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Straight Liner Wire Drawers will operate with any make of cold-heading machine
  • Built in nine sizes, they can handle all rod diameters from number 0 to number 8
Bar Drawers

Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Bar Drawers are designed for sizing of hot rolled bars to accurate cold-drawn dimensions in hex, round or other shapes. Current capacities are up to 2” in diameter.

Draw / Straighten / Cutoffs

  • Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Drawing, Straightening & Cut-off Machines are designed to produce cut-to-length blanks or straight bars from hot-rolled steel coils. They manufacture blanks and bar stock for diameters ½” to 1-1/2”.
  • Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Instacut Machines produce volume-controlled slugs if less than one-to-one ratio (length to diameter). They can be coupled with standard Ajax/CECO/Erie Press Wire Drawers for conversion from hot rolled coiled (rod) stock to slugs.
  • Ajax/CECO/Erie Press In-line Drawing and Cut-off Machines draw hot-rolled, coiled stock for producing smaller diameter blanks (1/4” to 5/8”).
