Atlanta: 2-in-1 event appeal Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center will be a bustling place when Interwire returns this April, joined for the second time by the Global Continuous Casting Forum (GCCF), last held in 2011 and now back in an expanded format. Attendees will have plenty to do at Interwire 2015 at Building A in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. A sold-out show floor will feature the collective technology and services offered by some 400 represented companies, and the educational programs have

largely been designed and prepared by wire and cable manufacturers, people who believe in “practical” stuff. The GCCF, which runs from Monday, April 27, through Thursday, April 30, will have its own reception and a dinner at the Georgia Aquarium on Wednesday, April 29. Details on the GCCF program start on p. 62, and the schedule has been set so that a healthy block of time is available for its attendees to walk the Interwire show floor. The WAI program was directed by Encore Wire’s Gary Spence, who was the driving force in creating the first-ever program in 2011 that covered

At Interwire 2013, the Windak crew was well prepared.

The Georgia World Congress Center is a home-awayfrom home for WAI’s biennial event.

four types of continuous casting practices for copper. This time, it will also offer an aluminum track. The full Interwire schedule starts on Tuesday, April 28, but Monday, April 27, will see a slew of WAI meetings held as well as the day-long staging of Fundamentals of Wire Manufacturing. There will also be a tour of Southwire Company’s Carrollton rod mill plant that afternoon. The technical and operations program starts at 9 am, and the exhibits are open from 10 am to 5 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, from 10 am to 3 pm on Thursday. Leading off the conference session on Tuesday, April 28, is Philip Radbourne, a director of U.K.-based industry consulting firm Integer Research. He will give his overview of the wire outlook for the electric field. The sessions this year will focus on applications, dust control, staffing, ferrous and nonferrous. That afternoon, the show floor will once again host Productions Solutions. The WAI Member Rewards Luncheon and WAI’s Annual Meeting will be held from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, with the winners of the Mordica and Donnellan awards honored, along with recognition of WAI’s new Life and 25-Year Members. There also will be a raffle and President’s Award at this members-only event. That night, the Opening Reception will be held Tuesday, April 28, at the College Football Hall of Fame, a recently opened attraction that should be of interest to all, not just sports fans. The Mordica Lecture, presented by Prof. Tadeusz Knych, AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland, will lead off the conference sessions on Wednesday, April 29. That afternoon, the keynote presentation will be presented by Mike Abrashoff, former naval commander of the USS Benfold, and author of “It’s Your Ship.” His talk, which will share lessons that allowed him to turn a troubled ship to a standout, can be applied to business. The talk, sponsored by Gem Gravure, Co., Inc., is from 2 pm to 2:45 pm, and is open to full conference registrants. Thursday will see an event worth staying for: the Manufacturing Management Workshop. It will be presented by John Barteld, a consultant best known for having served as CEO/executive director of the IWCS from 2004 to 2014. Meanwhile, the city of Atlanta, a site well known to many Interwire attendees, will be there to explore and to enjoy.

Monday special: learning the industry basics is a fundamental opportunity

The Fundamentals of Wire Manufacturing course at Interwire remains an ideal primer for industry newcomers or people learning new duties. The series of presentations will be taught on Monday, April 27, by industry experts whose focus will be on providing practical information. The format allows easy interaction with instructors as questions are encouraged. The program starts in the morning with five sessions (Mechanics of Wiredrawing, Drawing Dies, Wiredrawing Lubricant Technology and Wire Breaks & Surface Damage) while the afternoon will offer tracks for ferrous, nonferrous and electrical topics. See p. 74.

Monday special: tour of Southwire Company’s rod mill in Carrolton

Southwire has been designing, operating, and selling Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR) systems since 1963. Southwire commissioned its own SCR copper system in 1981, which was the largest at that time. Today, the company’s plant rod plant in Carrolton remains one of the most productive electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper rod systems in the world. See p. 49.

Sequel to 2011 Global Continuous Casting Forum will have dual-focus

Four years ago, the continuous casting community was amazed at the scope and energy at the first-ever staging of the Global Continuous Casting Forum (GCCF). Conceived and directed by Encore Wire’s Gary Spence, the event–by popular request–has returned in what should be a great event. Co-located once again with Interwire, the GCCF now has an expanded scope. The first event was totally focused on copper production, and it wowed the audience by covering not just one or two but four continuous casting methods. This time, it has added a second track, for aluminum. The standalone preview that starts on p. 62 outlines the event.

Education continues on the Interwire show floor with Production Solutions At Interwire, three separate 20-minute Production Solutions presentations will be made on the show floor from 3:30 pm to 4:50 pm on Wednesday, April 29.

INTERWIRE PREVIEW

Who knew? The city of Atlanta Atlanta is an easy place to get around, and as the Wire Association has been a long-time visitor, the idea surfaced that, rather than repeat past lists of various attractions and restaurants to try, it would be a noble idea to present some facts about the city that attendees might not know. To that end, below is a compilation of facts from various sources.

There are more than 65 streets with the word Peachtree in Atlanta. Oddly enough, it’s possible none of them are named for an actual peach tree. Historians suggest they’re named after the Native American village of “Standing Pitch Tree.” The pronunciation corrupted over the years.

The world’s largest drive-in fast food restaurant is Atlanta’s famous Varsity Restaurant, which is located on two acres and can accommodate 600 cars and more than 800 people inside. Each day, the restaurant produces two miles of hot dogs, a ton of onions, 2,500 pounds of potatoes, 5,000 fried pies and 300 gallons of chili. It also is the largest single outlet for Coca-Cola.

The world’s largest bas-relief sculpture in the world called the Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park is in Atlanta city. First commissioned in 1916, the Civil War monument scuplture wasn’t completed until 1972. The carving is recessed 42 feet into the stone 400 feet above the ground, and measures 90 feet tall by 190 feet wide. The deepest part of the carving is twelve feet deep at Lee’s elbow.

The tallest building in the United States outside of New York City and Chicago is in Atlanta. The Bank of America Plaza stands at 1,023 feet tall and dominates the city’s skyline. One of the interesting parts of the design of the building is that there are no street level pedestrian entrances; most people enter and exit the building from the parking areas located underground.

Buckhead, one of Atlanta’s most affluent neighborhoods and shopping mecca of the South, owes its unusual name to 19th Century local general store owner Henry Irby. Irby killed a large deer and prominently mounted the buck head on the wall of his establishment, a popular outpost for locals and travelers. The name stuck, despite efforts to change it in the late 1800s.

Atlanta was the only city in North American destroyed as an act of war. (General Sherman burnt it to the ground.) Only 400 buildings survived. Fittingly, the city is represented by a symbol of the mythological Egyptian bird called the Phoenix, as Atlanta, like the Phoenix, rose from the ashes to become an influential city.


Atlanta was originally named Terminus and from 1843 to 1844 was called Marthasville, after Governor Wilson Lumpkin’s daughter. The city got its current name from railroad engineer J. Edgar Thompson. It’s thought to be a shortened version of “Atlantica-Pacifica.”

Atlanta is home to the world’s largest annual 10K race. Known as “Peachtree Road Race,” it has seen as many as 45,000 runners compete. Why did Atlanta resident Margaret Mitchell write Gone with the Wind? Because an ankle injury kept her from walking and she was really, really bored.

It is against the law in Atlanta to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or street lamp.

Atlanta was the fifth city to be the capital of the state of Georgia. It was preceded by Savannah, Augusta, Louisville, and Milledgeville.

In terms of the largest concentration of the Fortune 500 companies in USA, the city of Atlanta ranks third.

Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center is the fourth largest convention center in the U.S., with some 3.9 million sq ft of exhibition space. Each year, it hosts more than a million visitors.

tour Plant Tour: Southwire Rod Mill MONDAY, APRIL 27 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Visit Southwire Company’s copper rod mill in Carrollton, Georgia. Southwire has been designing, operating, and selling Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR) systems since 1963. Southwire commissioned its own SCR copper system in 1981, which was the largest at that time. Today, this plant remains one of the most productive electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper rod systems in the world. The SCR process allows production of the highest quality copper wire rod at the lowest possible cost. Because of the ease of maintenance and operation, the Southwire system has higher availability than competing systems, which further lowers operating costs. Frequent system startups for new customers ensure that start-ups are well planned and minimize the required field services. Smooth startups get the customer’s equipment into production quickly to meet market demand. Fifty percent (50%) of all copper rod made in the world is produced with Southwire SCR technology.

His system of management techniques helped him overcome the challenge of low morale and high turnover by empowering every individual to share the responsibility to achieve excellence. These concepts apply to many organizations facing the same problems today. At the age of 36, Mike Abrashoff was selected by the U.S. Navy in June 1997 to become commander of the USS Benfold. At the time, he was the most junior commanding officer in the Pacific Fleet. The immediate challenges that faced him were staggering: exceptionally low morale with unacceptably high turnover. Few thought that this ship could improve. In many ways, the USS Benfold was an extreme example of problems that can exist at any business. The solution was to establish a system of management techniques that Abrashoff calls “The Leadership Roadmap.” At the core of his leadership approach on Benfold was a process of replacing command and control with commitment and cohesion, and by engaging the hearts, minds, and loyalties of workers, with conviction and humility. “The most important thing that a captain can do is to see the ship through the eyes of the crew.” According to Abrashoff, “The Leadership Roadmap” is a practice that empowers every individual to share the responsibility of achieving excellence. “It’s your ship,” he was known to say. His former sailors to this day still remind him of it. By every measure, these principles were able to achieve breakthrough results. Personnel turnover decreased to an unprecedented 1%. The rate of military promotions tripled,

Regarded as the finest ship in the Pacific Fleet, the USS Benfold won the prestigious Spokane Trophy for having the highest degree of combat readiness. Abrashoff served through January 2000. The leadership lessons from Abrashoff’s turnaround in It’s Your Ship became a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller, with over 800,000 copies sold to date. Prior to commanding the USS Benfold, Abrashoff served as the military assistant to the Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Dr. William J. Perry. He also helped draft the air defense plan for naval forces in the Persian Gulf in 1990, coinciding with Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait; and served as the executive officer of the Cruiser Shiloh, where he deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of United Nations sanctions against Iraq. The presentation is open to full registration attendees of Interwire and the Global Continuous Casting Forum.

1:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. “Analysis of electrical energy demand trends and the implication in nonferrous rod demand,” by Carmelo Maria Brocato, Continuus-Properzi SpA, Italy

Electrical energy (EE) is generally produced in a power station, then transported through a network, and exploited in various applications. Aluminum and copper rod have been, and will continue to be, the basic raw materials for production of cables and conductors. As a consequence, the growth of EE demand requires a parallel growth in the production of copper and aluminum rod and is one of the major driving forces of the wire and cable machinery industry. In this paper, the author analyzes EE demand trends during the past two decades and the link to the demand of nonferrous rod for electrical applications.

1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. “Copper: The Metal for the Future,” by Stephen J. Ruth, Freeport McMoRan Sales Co. Inc., USA

Copper is one of the world’s oldest metals. It is also a metal that is reinventing itself for the future. This presentation briefly reviews the current state of the copper market. It then examines the future uses of this innovative metal in an ever-changing world.

10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. | Interwire Exhibits Open 10:30 a.m. - 11:10 a.m. “Lining life of silicon carbide or chromic oxide cast linings in pour pots/tundishes,” by Bryan Nelson, Allied Mineral Products Inc., USA

The goal of this study was twofold: improve pour pot/tundish life and develop a test that would correlate field results to a lab test. The results would allow prediction of refractory lining life from lab testing obtained as opposed to having to run tests in the field. The objective was approached by using two proven refractory systems in contact with molten copper and slag—SiC and Cr2O3—to ascertain which refractory system is superior as far as improving lining life. The testing was conducted in the pour pot/ tundish but the results would be applicable to slag vessels, furnaces, and launders.

11:10 a.m. - 11:50 a.m. “Continuous Cast Copper Rod Coolant Filtration,” by Tom Horn, Filtertech Inc., USA

The removal of copper oxide particulate from coolants in this application is known to have positive effects on coolant condition resulting in longer coolant life, improved quality rod, longer roll life, and increased production. This paper provides the most recent information to the copper rod producer about system design, sizing, and component preference. Caster water management as well as aluminum rod coolant filtration is also reviewed.

applications,” by M. V. Prasad, Mishra Dhatu Nigam Ltd., India The titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V is used for making structural elements in strategic sectors like Indian missile programs. The components are welded by using Ti-6Al-4V filler wire of 1.6 mm diameter. It is very difficult to cold draw this alloy because of its low ductility at room temperature, so hot working is substituted to make finished wire. Initially, the bars were hot rolled to a 9-mm diameter after chemical milling. The bars were processed by hot swaging to a 4.5-mm diameter followed by hot wiredrawing to a 1.68-mm diameter. 9:00 - 11:00 am

“Energy-efficient drive system for extrusion lines,” by Juan Carlos González Villar, Kabel Consulting, Germany. In extruder drives, the ratio of net power requirement to installed power is very small, a condition known as a power “mismatch.” Depending on cable type, cable/conductor diameter, insulation thickness, line speed, and pulling force, cable manufacturers have until now been forced to pay a lot of money for unnecessary power consumption every year. This paper discusses opportunities to make incremental improvements in extrusion lines that deliver significant cost savings. In particular, it discusses a new (and patented) drive technology. 10:00 - 10:30 am

“Authentication and traceability in wire and cable,” by Craig L. Shoemaker and Sean Bernhardt, PolyOne Corporation, USA.

“Rodents and insects—a chronic threat to wire and cable,” by Varsha Laxman Pote and Prajakta Shyamkant Dhamorikar, C Tech Corporation, India. Cables in all applications are vulnerable to damage from rodents, termites, and ants. Conventional chemicals used to deal with these pests are toxic and hazardous, and have become ineffective as most of the target species have developed resistance to them. This paper describes polymer-specific masterbatches to combat these pests: Rodrepel™, Termirepel™, and Combirepel™. These are patented non-toxic and non-hazardous products which have been successful in protecting polymer applications and which do not kill the target species. 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

“The new era in aluminum wiredrawing lubricants,” by Troy Carr, Bechem Lubrication Technology LLC, USA, and Harry Hofmann, Carl Bechem GmbH, Germany. Significant efforts have been made in recent years by the wiredrawing industry to convert high-volume applications in automotive, magnet, and shielding wire from copper to aluminum. This has led to efforts by equipment manufacturers to develop the technique of drawing aluminum on multi-wire machines.

Manufacturing Management 9:00 - noon

“Manufacturing Management,” by John T. Barteld, USA If there is one constant in an organization, it is that nothing is constant. In the Technology Age, change comes rapidly, and oftentimes, out of nowhere. Dealing with issues of leadership in an era of rapid change is a challenge, but also a requirement. In this workshop, current thinking and techniques in leadership are examined, with direct examples used to illustrate the challenge and the opportunity. The use of “Change Agents”, strategies for “peeking around the corner” to identify tomorrow’s challenges, and coping with the disruption of change are explored. The Manufacturing Management Workshop is a new half-day program designed to provide practical tools for the critical areas of leadership and teamwork in the challenging and unique wire and cable manufacturing sector. It is designed specifically for wire and cable operations managers. It offers practical tools to advance performance, a chance for networking among professionals facing similar challenges and opportunities, and concludes with a leadership discussion panel of senior operations executives. Moderator John Barteld recently retired after nearly 40 years in the wire and cable industry. He has served on company Boards of Directors in the U.S. and the Middle East and as chairman of the board of directors in India. After retiring from an active role in cable sector companies in 2004, he continued to serve the industry through his role as the CEO of the International Wire and Cable Symposium, a premier forum for exchange of technology within the wire and cable industry. He is now in his 10th year on faculty at York College of Pennsylvania where he teaches the capstone course in business strategy and policy, as well as international business courses and leadership and change.

First up, at 3:30 pm, is “Ways to determine root causes of issues blamed on the cleaning house,” to be presented at Booth 480 by Jack McAfee, Chemetall USA. This presentation briefly covers identifying the root cause of issues that can develop from a cleaning house. It also discusses determining if the source really is the cleaning house or if it is possibly from processes that come before or after that step in the production cycle. In some cases, simple tests can be run on site to help point you in the right direction. An example would be: “is that red hue on the rod surface coming from copper plating or hematite scale?” Specific issues can be discussed one on one after the presentation. Next up, at 4 pm, is “Lubricant Solutions,” to be presented at Booth 963 by Troy Carr, business development manager, Bechem Lubrication Technology, and Harry Hofmann, export sales manager, Carl Bechem GmbH. This presentation will discuss the recent developments of full synthetic lubricants and their expanded use in copper wiredrawing applications.

NEW PRODUCT New mesh welder will have a reccurring starring production role at Interwire At Interwire, Schlatter North America plans to display its new MG950 mesh welder, with live demonstrations approximately every 30 minutes during which booth personnel can explain how the technology can save manufacturers both time and money. Developed by Schlatter Industries AG, the MG950 welder is designed primarily for the production of industrial mesh. It is flexible in relation to various mesh geometries, achieves high production speeds and exhibits the highest quality right from the first mesh.

Lot sizes continue to shrink and manufacturers cannot longer afford to generate waste. This waste can occur when the operator adjusts the machine to optimize the setup and weld settings. The measuring system on the new MG950 remedies the situation. When using the measuring system, the line wire feed positions can be precisely positioned according to the mesh that been programmed. As a result, productivity is significantly higher for small lot sizes when using the newly developed MG950 compared to traditional industrial mesh welding machines.

Schlatter’s MG950 mesh welder. Lastly, many products are trimmed along the cross wire, for example: appliance racks, cable trays, point of purchase displays. For the first time, Schlatter will demonstrate the new SQ14 trimming heads that are mounted directly behind the welding portal to save a manufacturing step. See us at Booth 1314.

NEW PRODUCT New Vitari straighteners now available in both left and right-hand configurations At Interwire, Vitari, now part of the Eurolls Group, will be able to inform attendees about the company’s new NR straightening series and in particular the NR300 straightener for 3 mm-10 mm wires. Vittorio Mion, sales director of the Vitari Division, will be at Booth 858 to outline all the innovative technical features of the new Vitari straightening machine series, NR100-200-300 and 400, which have been engineered to improve processing performance but in particular plant efficiency too. In relation to plant efficiency Mion highlights the following: logistics and material-flow have been key factors in Vitari’s decision to engineer left-handed straighteners that enable mirrored machine set-ups. For decades straightening machines have been manufactured in the conventional right handed

version obliging plant lay-outs to look very much like school classrooms. At last, Vitari’s dynamic engineering team has unfolded its unique left and right-handed straightening machines. Some of the advantages include: possibility to set up machines face-toface, enabling the operator to tool-up both machines without needing walk around 3-6 or 12 meter-long benches to access the straightener; as bars fall into the collecting bench, forklift trucks or overhead cranes can collect two bar bundles from the same corridor; the use of the forklift trucks, a hazard in most plants, can now be reduced as access to the straighteners is cut by 50%; with limited plant space or complex existing plant layouts the left handed model

Vitari’s NR300 straightener. offers greater flexibility in identifying suitable floor space; and, as much as face-to-face solutions are favoured there are unquestionable advantages for side by side set-ups with the unique left-handed straighteners. See us at Booth 858.

NEW PRODUCT This new system is not a bench-warmer Interwire 2015 is an important venue for Italy’s Gimax Srl. This year we will not only be presenting our range of wiredrawing equipment, but particular emphasis will be given to the newly updated and fully redesigned wet-drawbench. The drawbench can be classed as a “wet draw” unit as the liquid lubricant is sprayed onto the die/wire. The main feature is that the drawbench is a “non slip” type, as each capstan is individually driven, and the capstans themselves are positioned vertically. Other features include low wear (dies and capstans), low energy consumption, low maintenance but high speed and

high productivity – the productivity of the line does not depend solely on the line speed (which can reach 6000 feet/minute or 30 meters / second) but also on the reduced maintenance costs, extreme ease when threading wire through machine, maximum accessibility to all components, etc. The wire has a reduced cast and helix making alignment between capstan and die extremely easy, and the result is an increase in wire quality. The design of the unit makes it adaptable to both ferrous and non-ferrous wires, and the innovations are such that the unit qualifies for subsidies
