Lewis Wire Straightening and Cutting Machines

Lewis Stationary Cut

The Lewis Machine Stationary Cut Series of wire straighten and cut line has been the backbone of the wire products industry for over 100 years.

Since 1911 Lewis Machines have been built to provide many years of reliable wire processing service. RMG has continued this tradition with innovative improvements such as our patented “Clutchless” cutters, digital arbor and feed speed meters and pneumatic feed roll pressure, while maintaining the same long-serving, robust, proven design. Our new Lewis Machine wire straightening and cutting equipment offers variable speed arbors, superior ease and repeatability of setups, less maintenance and years of dependable service. Our Lewis Machine wire processing line covers a wire diameter range of 0.030″(0.76mm) – 0.875″(22.0mm).
