Yoder Flux Cored Wire Machine

Yoder Homepage 


Flux cored wire is produced with either a lap or butt seam, to retain the flux material within the tube.  Powdered flux is metered into the roll forming process, after which the tube is drawn down to the final wire diameter and recoiled, typically at speeds ranging from 200 to 500 FPM.  Yoder provides roll forming machinery and tooling that is integrated to the FCW production system.  Recently, Yoder has partnered with Lamnea Bruk, Sweden, to supply the roll forming equipment and form tooling which is integrated to their FCW Production system.  Depending on the frequency of product changes, the FCW machinery can be setup cantilevered, for quick tooling changeover, or between housings, depending on the customer’s needs.
