Claas/Klincke: Wire in a new dimension.

  • CHQ wire

    learn more

    FThis is used to manufacture connecting elements and cold-formed parts with exacting requirements for cold workability. These wires are distinguished by optimal conditions in the material structure, surface quality, geometry and mechanical properties.

  • THROUGH-HARDENABLE ROLLER BEARING WIRE RODS

    learn more

    For the production of rolling elements such as needle rollers, balls and various roller bodies. The ingot and strand cast material deployed for them is exclusively sourced from certified suppliers of precursor materials.

  • Heat-treatable spring steel wire

    learn more

    For the production of springs with special properties. Cr-, V- and Mo-alloyed variants. Execution with the highest degrees of spheroidization.

  • Tool steel wire

    learn more

    For the production of high-quality tools such as screwdriver blades, offset screwdrivers, drills, punching dies, chisels, knives or extrusion tools. Cr-, V- and Mo-alloyed variants with very good forming properties.

  • C-wire

    learn more

    Quality steel wires for the production of sophisticated products by bending, compression, rolling or embossing. C-ranges are available from 0.02 % to 0.95 % on an infinitely sliding scale.

 

History

The companies CLAAS and KLINCKE stand for centuries of wire tradition in Altena. Wire was drawn at CLAAS as early as 1738 and production began at KLINCKE in 1837. This tradition has been continued by the Falz family since 1989. Firstly, they acquired Max W. Claas GmbH & Co KG, six years later Hermann Klincke J. H. Sohn GmbH & Co KG. In 2013, Max W. Claas GmbH & Co KG set new standards with the construction of its new wire plant. In 2018, construction work began for the extension by Halls 7+8 with an area of more than 3,000 sqm.
