CMC will begin shipping our innovative SPOOLED REBAR from our new micro mill steelmaking facility in Durant, Oklahoma in the spring of 2018.
For the rebar fabrication industry, using traditional loose-wound coiled rebar on automatic bending machines was an improvement in production over straight-length rebar fabrication. While coiled rebar has benefits, it also presents a wide range of challenges including small, size-limited coils, twisting of the rebar causing difficulty feeding bending machines, difficulty straightening twisted bar, frequent tangles during de-coiling, unstable stacking and storage concerns and varying linear feet of rebar from coil to coil.
CMC’s new and improved SPOOLED REBAR alleviates these challenges.
CMC’s spooled rebar will be produced in #3 to #6 bar to ASTM specifications, and in 1.5 up to 4.8 ton spools allowing you to choose the spool size that best fits your shop’s capabilities.
Larger spools decrease change-out downtime thus increasing production uptime and output per hour, material yield and safety. In addition, production is positively impacted with no twisting during straightening, allowing multi-stranding which increases productivity while producing truer shapes with minimal need to further refine final fabricated product.
Safety is improved with more stable, tighter stacks that are easier to store, stage, load and transport compared to loose-wound coiled rebar.
