Box Stitching Wire Problems, Box Stitchers

When the machine is initially setup with a new spool of box stitching wire the brake system does not take much pressure to prevent the spool from over rotating because of the weight of the wire. As the wire gets further to the bottom of the spool it gets easier and easier for the spool to over rotate causing a nesting of the wire or jam. The spool holder brake should be adjusted as the wire comes off to stop this problem.

As you can see in your picture windings of the wire are no longer in line (one after another) like they would be normally during the spooling process.

This is what points us to the over rotation theory. The wire nested initially and when the wire kept on feeding into the machine the jam or snag happened from wires getting tightened upon one another.

Stitching Wire Flaking Problems

We use the best coatings and the best practices when making our stitching wires. Sometimes flaking can occur with any stitching wire. Some of the best advice is to check wire your wire is traveling prior to the stitcher head. Check your wire guide springs for flat spots along with any metal on metal contact. Call us for more information on this and we can help.

True to size wire

Some companies say they are giving you one size of wire and actually giving you something totally different. WCJ Pilgrim Wire guarantees that if we sell you any size Gauge of wire we will give you that exact Gauge of wire. The problem with other companies that sell you something that you did not ask for is the wire can be larger then the job needs. This larger wire will cut down on your stitching wire yield because you are using more wire then you actually need. Not only does this cheat you, it makes your postage costs increase because of the added weight. This can hurt your bottom line.

Colored Stitching Wire

Colored stitching wire can make or break a project. It can be the pop that gets you the sales. The problem with colored wire is it is at times hard to use. For the most part all nylon coated colored wire is 24 gauge. The wire is 25 gauge and the coating will make it 24 gauge. You will need to increase the the size of the components in the stitching head. For the most part this is going to be the formers and drivers. Please give us a call or find more information at www.wcjwire.com.

Stitching Wire Circle Cast and Camber
