Wire Treatment Technology

The use of the WireMaster wire treatment system, ideally in conjunction with an addition station for bulk materials for alloy fine correction, enables the production of GJS and GJV cast iron to be automated to the greatest possible extent. This method enables a stable and reliable process to be realised. Combined with Electro-Nite's proprietary GJS/GJV Navigator process control software, the manufacturing process can be fully controlled and documented while minimising human influence.

WireMaster with ladle car

Proces improvement

  • Precise addition of magnesium and inoculant
  • Reduction of human error
  • Traceability of treatment parameters

Work safety

  • Service platform for optimal maintenance access
  • Reduced physical strain on employees
  • Closed treatment cabin

Environmental protection

  • Extraction of process emissions at the treatment site
  • Reduced emissions


  • The System can be adapted and designed to suit the conditions and the process at the customer's site.
    • Size of the treatment ladle
    • Ladle transport means (e.g. forklift, crane)
    • Spatial conditions

Precise addition of magnesium- and inoculant-containing cored wires. Simple control due to visualisation integrated in the PLC control system or HEN process control software.

Weigh-in terminal

Station for manual weighing of various additions for fine correction of the alloy before the cored wire treatment.

The station is connected to the process control software SG-/CGI-Navigator, the software calculates the required amounts of additives and transmits the values to the weighing-in terminal.

The operator weighs the materials, confirms weighing and addition of the individual materials. The target and current values are assigned to the corresponding ladle in the database and are thus available for later evaluations.
