Individual analysis, consulting advice on site and process optimisation: Traxit is your partner for all aspects of wire drawing and the use of custom-tailored lubricants.

We are pulling in the same direction together: In this way, services from Traxit increase the productivity of your wire drawing systems

Base material and end product, design of the wire drawing system, speed and temperature: The wire drawing process is influenced by a whole host of factors. The multitude of possible applications, ranging from delicate valve spring pins for the automotive industry to musical instrument strings, spring steel and structural steel and steel for bridges, ensure that no two production plants in the world are alike. The tribological requirements to be taken into consideration when selecting the appropriate lubricant are also correspondingly diverse. Our experts are there to assist you with the selection of exactly the right lubricant for your individual wire drawing application. They can provide you with support on optimum use and help you achieve the maximum in terms of product quality, efficiency and economy in wire production.

From the wire drawing process to specialty lubricants: We find exactly the right lubricant

With over 300 dry lubricants, wet lubricants and coating agents, Traxit offers you the world’s biggest range of lubricants for industrial wire production. They have been developed on the basis of 140 years of experience in the industry and adapted to a wide range of material properties, processing methods and processes.

The basis for the selection of the right lubricant for your area of application is a comprehensive understanding of your requirements by our experts on site. To this end, we analyse your drawing processes and wire samples from your production. We make your individual requirements our own and use this as the basis for determining the optimum lubrication solutions.

Easy handling, occupational health and safety and sustainability: We consider the overall picture, covering all aspects of your wire drawing application

When it comes to the selection of your specialty lubricant for wire drawing, our experts take account not only of the influencing factors specific to the product, die and process, but the easiest possible handling, trouble-free storage and occupational health and safety with respect to your employees, as well as sustainability in terms of application and use. This covers, for example, checking for a reduction in the range of your lubricant types, and the measurement of lubricant consumption and energy requirements for your production. From this data, our experts work with you to derive potentials and measures for savings and provide you with support in implementing and evaluating them. As a result, you improve your processes, contribute to environmental protection through increased sustainability and save ready cash thanks to reduced consumption of energy and lubricants.
