Reinforcement Wire

For metallic reinforcement of belts, hoses and tyres. 

  • Used material grades: C alloyed steels
  • Coating: Most of the wires are coated in brass (enhanced wire-to-rubber adhesion)
  • After drawing, the wires are braided, formed into sheets or spiralled, which then are coated with elastomers
Inner tube for conveyance of the fluid
  • gives the hose its chemical compatibility characteristics. Therefore, it has to be flexible and needs to be matched to the fluid carried within the tube
Reinforcement for strength
  • surrounds the inner tube and gives the necessary strength as well as the ability to hold pressure.
Outer cover for protection
  • protects the reinforcement from abrasion, corrosion, chemicals and ozone.

High Pressure Hose Wire

    • A hydraulic hose connects moving components
    • Steel inserts allow usage under maximum pressures
    • Hydraulic hoses usually consist of the hose itself and hose fittings
    • Permanent pressure tight connection of all parts due to deformation of the hose pressing process
    • The anatomy of hoses consists of three basic elements (Figure 1)
    • The materials selected depend on the operating temperature, the environmental conditions and the fluid, which is conveyed
      within the hose.
    • Reinforcement layer is the most important load-bearing element within the hose.
    • There can be several layers and types of reinforcements, which allows hoses to withstand high and extra high pressure. 
    • Depending on the internal pressure, a distinction is made between braided and spiral reinforcement (Figure 2).
    • Braiding machines continuously lay steel braids over one another to form long lengths of hose.
    • Spiralling is more difficult and is used to form highest pressure hydraulic hoses.
    • From ore to wire from one single source. Thus, maximum flexibility in all process steps.
    • Products developed on a customized basis to meet the highest requirements
    • Consistent and uniform tensile strengths
    • Worldwide operation with the necessary logistics
    • The best winding technology available, therefore high unwinding speeds
    • Environmental friendly and most advanced production facilities
    • Local sales hubs
