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.


    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.



At two factories located in Altena, the CLAAS/KLINCKE wire manufacturers are engaged in drawing and processing cold heading quality wires, roller bearing wire rods, spring wires and C-wires with diameters ranging from 0.5 to 50 mm. The construction of the new Max W. Claas wire factory has set new standards in wire production. Optimal process flows, modern drawing machines and the use of the latest annealing and surface technologies pave the way for wires with a high quality standard. The CLAAS/KLINCKE partnership has given rise to a unique production facility buffer in all manufacturing divisions. The extraordinary production spectrum, short throughput times, highest reliability, individual delivery units, large storage areas and a fully roofed logistics centre are only some examples of the capabilities available at the companies Max W. Claas GmbH & Co. KG und Hermann Klincke J. H. Sohn GmbH & Co. KG.
