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.



CLAAS/KLINCKE wire plants draw and process cold-heading wires, through-hardening bearing wires, heat-treatable spring steel wires, tool steel wires and C wires, in diameters of 0.5 mm - 50 mm at two plants in Altena. The commissioning of the newly built wire plant of Max W. Claas GmbH & Co KG in 2011 has opened up new possibilities in the production of wires.

Optimum process sequences, modern drawing machines and the use of the latest annealing and surface technologies form the basis for wires with high quality standards. The CLAAS/KLINCKE network has created a unique production plant buffer in all areas of production.

The extraordinary production spectrum, short process times, highest reliability, individual delivery units, large storage areas, product-oriented solutions and a fully roofed logistics centre are only a few examples of the efficiency of the companies Max W. Claas GmbH & Co. KG and Hermann Klincke J. H. Sohn GmbH & Co. KG.
