Lux, R., Kletzin, U., Geinitz, V., Beyer, P. "Changes in mechanical parameters of stored patented cold-drawn steel wire”, WIRE JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL, JULY 2014, pp 78-83
In a recently completed research project, 48 wires were prepared by varying the carbon content, type of smelting, type of patenting, chemical drawing preparation, single cross-section recuction and drawing speed.
The wire and spring research group at Technische Universität Ilmenau has cooperated with wire and spring manufacturers (Eisendraht- und Stahldrahtvereinigung and VDFI, the German manufacturer's association) in researching the long-term stability of mechanical parameters of patented drawn steel wire. Long-term natural aging effects on the mechanical parameters of patented drawn spring steel and rope wires were investigated in relation to multiple initial and process parameter variables.
