Wire for Two-Ram Baler Applications

Balers provide an ideal solution for compacting waste, providing easier storage, transport, and disposal in numerous facilities and worksites. Two-ram balers have become a popular choice for a variety of commercial, industrial, and construction applications due to their increased efficiency over single-ram solutions. Two-ram balers see broad usage in solid waste processing, material recovery, recycling, […]

The Process of Steel Annealing

Annealing is a heat treatment used to enhance the ductility and hardness of metals to make them easier to fabricate into finished products. Manufacturers heat the metal to a point above its recrystallization temperature for a set period of time and then cool it at a specific rate to establish the desired molecular structure and […]

Single vs. Double Loop Bale Ties

Bale ties—also referred to as wire ties—are pieces of wire used to bundle material together. They are available in numerous variations to suit different baling applications. Two of the most commonly used types are single loop bale ties and double loop bale ties. Below, we provide an overview of these two products, highlighting their unique […]

Tempering vs. Annealing

Metal workpieces are often heat treated to improve their physical, mechanical, and/or chemical properties to better suit their manufacturing operations and/or intended applications. Some of the characteristics that can be affected include strength, hardness, formability, ductility, malleability, and machinability.  Two of the most commonly utilized heat treating methods are tempering and annealing. Below, we highlight […]

The Process of Baling

Click to expand What is a Baler? Baler machines compress trash and waste materials for more efficient disposal. Inside each baler is a press that can generate enough force to compact cardboard boxes and other industrial or commercial trash into bales. These baled units get tied to help them maintain their form and shipped away […]

Benefits of Automatic Baling Wires

Baling wire is strong, durable, and highly useful for securing materials within various agricultural and industrial applications. It can hold hay bales, fencing, tools, wooden logs, cardboard, textiles, and other materials together for more accessible transport and storage. It is also an excellent means of securing equipment and materials to a surface for safety and […]

Types of Baling Wire

High-quality baling wire will meet strict metallurgical standards. Baling wire manufacturers must put their products through comprehensive pre-production materials testing to ensure the product will function optimally in its intended application environment. At Coastal Wire, we test all rods in our plant before undergoing the annealing process, which elongates the raw material into baling wire […]

Steel Baling Wires

Baling wire is made by stretching or drawing metal until it reaches a specified diameter. There are different types of baling wire made from a variety of materials, including steel, iron, and aluminum. The type of wire used depends on the purpose, location, and expected stress level. This blog covers steel baling wire and the […]

Box vs Coil Wires

Box wire and coil wire, though similar, fill different needs. Exploring their unique advantages and uses can help you decide which is best for your next project. Box Wire Primarily used in an industrial capacity, box wire is a resilient, high tensile strength wire that can withstand up to 75,000 psi and comes packaged as […]
