For the flat wire spiral, the round wire from our drawing mill at our parent plant in Bad Iburg is flattened to the required dimensions at our Allstedt plant just before spiralisation, and then directly processed into a spiral. The contact points between the windings lend the flat wire spiral greater stiffness and a lower compression set in longitudinal direction, which make it predestined for the precise guidance and high pressure absorption that is required in most actuation and transmission applications. An optional lining with a plastic tube, which we also manufacture ourselves, considerably minimises the internal friction caused by the flat profile and significantly increases the efficiency of the system when using appropriate strands or ropes.
