What is wire rod?
Wire rod usually refers to small diameter round steel in coils.
The diameter of the wire rod is in the range of 5-19 mm (usually 6-9 mm), and its lower limit is the minimum size of the hot-rolled steel section.
Types of wire rod
There are many varieties of wire rod.
The low carbon steel wire rod in the carbon steel wire rod is commonly called soft wire rod, and the medium and high carbon steel wire rod is commonly called hard wire rod.
The wire rod is mainly used as the blank for wire drawing, and can also be directly used as building materials and processed into mechanical parts.
Stainless steel wire rod is used for manufacturing stainless steel wire, stainless steel spring wire, stainless steel upset wire and stainless steel wire rope.
With the progress of production technology, square, hexagonal, fan-shaped and other special-shaped wire rods have appeared; The upper limit of the diameter has been expanded to 38 mm; The coil weight has increased from 40-60 kg to 3000 kg.
Due to the development of new post rolling heat treatment technology, the oxide scale on the surface of wire rod is obviously reduced, and the microstructure and properties are also greatly improved.
Wire Rod Weight Calculator
According to the national standard, hot-rolled plain round steel bar, that is, the finished steel bar with round cross section and smooth surface, commonly known as wire rod, includes HPB235 and HPB300.
According to the national standard, the wire rod can be delivered according to the actual weight or the theoretical weight, while it is generally delivered according to the actual weight in the market.
The wire rod is divided into high-speed wire rod and ordinary wire rod, but the calculation formula is the same.
You can use the wire rod weight calculator below to calculate the weight of wire rod.
