Facilities

We have the latest equipment on hand to cater to a broad range of processing needs.

Facilities

Wire rope development requires high precision testing and measurements. At O.C.R., we have built a system that allows us to optimally and flexibly perform a wide range of evaluations and tests to deliver safe products with a high level of quality.

Wire Drawing Machine

Wire Drawing Machine

We use a diamond wire drawing die to thin out thick wire rods delivered to us in stages.

Stranding Machine (18F, Ultra-fine Wire Stranding Machine)

Stranding Machine

This twists the stainless wire produced by the wire drawing machine and turns it into wire rope. This machine is capable of various stranding configurations.

Extrusion Machine

Extrusion Machine

This primarily coats the wire rope with nylon resin.

Coloring Furnace

Coloring Furnace

This coats the wire rope with thermosetting paint at high temperatures.

Electropolishing, Ultrasonic Cleaning Machine

Electropolishing, Ultrasonic Cleaning Machine

This electrolyzes the wire in an electrolytic solution for a smoother surface finish. Adding this process helps protect the wire surface against microscopic rusting.
This is combined with ultrasonic cleaning to wash away oil and other grime on the wire.

Heat Treating Furnace

Heat Treating Furnace

Heat treating using reducing gases is added to improve linearity and non-repulsion.

Tension Testing Machine(Shimadzu Autograph AG-IS, AGS500B)

Tension Testing Machine

This is used to measure the tensile strength of wire rope, and wire materials and terminal processed products.
This allows for advanced product control, and research and development by analyzing the maximum load (breaking load) and elongation (breaking length, elongation, average values) displayed as precise waveforms and numerical values.

Digital Microscope (Keyence VH-Z450)

Digital Microscope

A digital microscope capable of magnifications ranging from 20x up to a maximum of 3000x. This has made it possible to observe ultra-fine scratches and other areas of concern that were previously extremely difficult to identify, making it much easier to troubleshoot solutions.

Digital Outside Diameter Measuring Device (CERSA MCI, ZUMBACH ODAC)

Digital Outside Diameter Measuring Device

This device is used to quickly and accurately measure the diameter of wire used in a wire rope in an easy to use, contactless manner. Slight damages and distortions in the wire rope are shown in the measurement values provided (average, maximum, and minimum values).
