Transforming steel wire and applying coating technologies is our core business. Strengthening our technological leadership in these competences therefore drives our innovation process. The combination of the two core competences results in a broad range of high technological products.

Through steel wire transformation we influence the properties of steel such as strength, ductility, fatigue, and shape. 


Wire rod

  • Our main raw material, with annual sourcing in the range of 2.5 to 2.8 million tons
  • Worldwide network of suppliers
  • Wide range of compositions and grades to best suit the application

Wire drawing

  • Basic process for steel wire transformation
  • Diameter reduction and wire elongation
  • Increased strength and reduced ductility

Thermal treatment

  • Creates a specific, homogeneous crystallographic steel structure
  • Creates the right mechanical properties for further deformation or for the final application
  • Processes: patenting, batch annealing, hardening and tempering



 




 

Cord making

  • Combines different high strength wires into a cord, cable or rope
  • Creates cables that are stronger and more flexible than individual wires
  • Cables can be tailored to be used in a range of different applications

Textile technologies

  • For processing steel wires, cords and fibers
  • To reinforce products and/or maintain flexibility
  • Processes: knitting, weaving, braiding,…



 




 

Metal fiber production & products

  • Producing wire and filaments with a diameter ranging from 1 to 40µm
  • Processes: bundling and drawing

Welding/mesh production

  • Producing nets and mesh
  • Mainly used as reinforcement
  • Processes: welding, weaving or chainlink



 




 

Profiling

  • Round wires are deformed to flat wires and special shapes
  • Processes: rolling or profiled die drawing

better together

  • transmission-cable

    Situation

    Alcan and Bekaert joined forces to install 210 miles of transmission cable

    Solution

    Bekaert seamlessly adjusted the lengths of the reels to help Alcan’s trucks drive through mountainous terrain

    Result

    Alcan could meet their customer’s delivery requirements

  • Algeciras-port

    Situation

    Optimal reinforcement required for the concrete pavement of the Algeciras port terminal in Spain.

    Solution

    Concrete strengthened with Dramix steel fibers, offering high fatigue resistance and load bearing capacity.

    Result

    The solution largely exceeds the Spanish standard for the design and construction of port pavement set at a durability of at least 25 years.

  • ski

    Situation

    Skiers count on safety when they go up the mountain

    Solution

    In close cooperation Bekaert developed superior quality wires that meet the technical customer requirements of ropeway constructors

    Result

    The customer handles the production of the cables, but also on-site weaving (or splicing) and installation. The cables have a life expectancy up to 40 years
