In Line Descalers

Mechanically Descaled in-line wire processing of green rod is the definition of Lean Manufacturing. Many of our customers have significantly reduced costs and inventory by utilizing our descaling equipment. Rockford Manufacturing Group can supply completely integrated systems to transform raw mill, green or hot-rolled rod all into descaled, drawn, straightened and cut bars. The removed scale dust is designated inert and not considered an environmental hazard. These systems require no external electrical power source and have complete electrical interlocks between each component of the system
