SinterMet rolls are built to last.

Ultimate Performance for Modern Wire Rod Mills Today's wire rod mills are running at increasingly high speeds, and they require a guide roll that gives them the wear resistance and low density their applications demand. Tool steels are hardly competent. Fe-TiC guide rolls inevitably fail. The alternative is SMETiC 2000.

Specially designed for guide roll applications, SMETiC 2000 is a high performance cermet material manufactured to meet the demands of unique operating parameters and withstand today's tough conditions. SMETiC outperforms tool steels because it can handle high speeds of up to 120 m/sec that require guide roll rotation of about 35,000 rpm, and it doesn't exhibit the residual micro-porosity present in conventional FeTiC guide rolls.

SMETiC 2000 rolls have been treated by advanced HIPing (hot isostatic press) technology to guarantee top perform- ance and quality.



- Lighter than WC-Co by 50% Lighter than steel by 15%
- Free of micro-porosity and other defects
- Excellent wear resistance similar to WC-Co
- Minimum pick-up galling Outstanding strength and impact resistance
- Superior high temperature corrosion resistance
- Easy to be machined by conventional cutting tools
- Highly heat-treatable
- Less mill downtime by working with SinterMet's advanced WC-Co/Ni cemented carbide rolls

SinterMet rolls are built to last.

The performance of wire rod mill rolls is directly related to appropriate grade selection for your specific applications. Producing a superior "custom" roll - created for your specific conditions - results in increased tons rolled per groove and superior product quality.

Shur-Lock rolls are built to last.

Shur-Lock composite rolls combine the extended pass life of tungsten carbide, powder metallurgy tool steel or other advanced materials, with the durability and economy of an advanced composite roll. With Shur-Lock rolls, mills experience performance improvements of six-to-20 times over conventional iron rolls. Your mill will see:

- Reduced roll inventory
- Increased tons per groove
- Less time redressing
- Reduced scrap
- Lower rejection rates
- Increased mill utilization
- Lower cost per tons rolled

Because Shur-Lock composite rolls provide a perfect section, your rod or bar mill will see reduced wear on the roll stands. The number of roll and groove changes are decreased allowing your mill to do the work it was designed for: rolling continuous "on size," in tolerance product. Lower your cost per ton rolled by reducing the number of delays associated with roll and groove changes.
