Fort Wayne Metals provides a variety of packaging options. You can specify the spool type you want, or let us recommend the one we feel will work best for your specific needs. For additional protection on alloys that are subject to corrosion, spools can be bagged with desiccant packets. Straightened and cut wire is shipped in PVC tubes or wood crates, depending on the quantity.
Labeling of Spools
Our spools are labeled with information including alloy type, size, lot number, spool net weight, customer purchase order number, date and spool number is listed on each spool (excluding braiding bobbins). To help ensure accurate information, the statistical average of mechanical properties flows directly from internal data collection to labels.
The label also indicates the average break load, ultimate tensile strength and percent elongation of the wire, based on our sampling plan. And you also have the option of having your spools 100% inspected and labeled.
We have the ability to custom spool any specific length of wire. In addition, we can adapt our equipment to work in conjunction with any custom spool you supply.
Spool Returns and Recycling
In order to minimize our environmental impact, we will reuse any spool returned to us in good condition. We’ll also accept any broken or bad spools as a part of our recycling program – please contact us for details.
