Claas/Klincke: Wire in a new dimension.

  • CHQ wire

    learn more

    FThis is used to manufacture connecting elements and cold-formed parts with exacting requirements for cold workability. These wires are distinguished by optimal conditions in the material structure, surface quality, geometry and mechanical properties.


    learn more

    For the production of rolling elements such as needle rollers, balls and various roller bodies. The ingot and strand cast material deployed for them is exclusively sourced from certified suppliers of precursor materials.

  • Heat-treatable spring steel wire

    learn more

    For the production of springs with special properties. Cr-, V- and Mo-alloyed variants. Execution with the highest degrees of spheroidization.

  • Tool steel wire

    learn more

    For the production of high-quality tools such as screwdriver blades, offset screwdrivers, drills, punching dies, chisels, knives or extrusion tools. Cr-, V- and Mo-alloyed variants with very good forming properties.

  • C-wire

    learn more

    Quality steel wires for the production of sophisticated products by bending, compression, rolling or embossing. C-ranges are available from 0.02 % to 0.95 % on an infinitely sliding scale.


Quality management

Assuring and maintaining the quality number amongst the elementary areas of the production processes at CLAAS. This is also the reason for continuous investments in new equipment and the further training of the workforce. CLAAS is certified in keeping with DIN EN ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949 and DIN EN ISO 14001. Cutting-edge measuring and testing systems guarantee the consistently high quality of the wires and ensure that the stringent quality requirements of customers around the world are being met. A 2,000 kN tensile testing machine is available to determine the mechanical properties of the wires and allows wires with a diameter of up to 52 mm to be analysed in terms of their tensile strength, contraction at fracture, elongation at rupture and elastic limit. Other testing and documentation options are provided by metallography, metal analyses, magnetic particle crack detection and measurements of the roundness, hardness and roughness.
