Baling wire made in America

When we make our annealed steel wire, we leave nothing to chance. Every stage of the manufacturing life cycle is done according to rigorous protocols.

It all starts with a select family of melting plants where we purchase 100% American-made steel billets. Each is delivered with metallurgical traceability specs certifying chemical composition to meet the end product’s load and tensile strength. 

From there our 125-person production staff and five onsite engineers get to work.

First, the newly-formed carbon steel wire is descaled through mechanical reverse-bending. This eliminates mill scale and surface rust and also reduces die wear. Even better, mechanical descaling means we eliminate harsh, environmentally unsafe chemicals from the production process.

Next, the wire is drawn through a heavy-duty, bull-block continuous wire machine, and low-carbon (1018) grades are air-cooled to ensure consistent tensile strength. Then, it’s on to the annealing process.

The annealing process

Annealing involves heating the steel above its recrystallization temperature, maintaining that temperature, and then cooling it.

The annealing process creates a uniform atomic structure, increases ductility, and reduces brittleness. The result: wire that is easy to use and durable.

After the wire is annealed, we apply a coat of wax to the finished product. This surface treatment provides a final layer of protection and also produces gorgeous wire that never leaves a mess and always feeds smoothly in automatic baling machines.

Our commitment to quality

We go above and beyond to ensure our baling wire meets the highest standards of quality and performance.

Baling Wire Direct controls every aspect of baling wire production and distribution, which allows us to give the best product, with the best customer experience, at the best prices.

But our commitment to quality doesn't end there. We carefully spool the wire through a coiling machine and cut it into 50 or 100 lb boxes. These boxes are then palletized, banded, and shrink-wrapped, ensuring they arrive at your doorstep in pristine condition.

To make your experience even more seamless, our Autoship™ system keeps you informed every step of the way. You'll receive tracking information via your preferred contact method (email, text message). The entire process takes just 1-3 business days. 

With our set-and-forget reordering and invoicing, you'll get exactly what you need, when you need it, without sacrificing USA quality or customer service.
