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 crosssection reduction and drawing speed. This paper gives an overview of:
• The changes of characteristic values for the mechanical properties determined by i.e. torsion and tensile tests during storage and depending on heat treatments
• An automated detection of cracks along the wire-length-surface (longitudinal cracks) which is based on the torsion-testing-curve
• The correlation between the variation of wire strength parameters and the variation of geometry of springs and other components
