Quality Control

Vale Upset Tester

Upset Testing is the quickest and best way of detecting surface flaws in rod and bar. Vale offers 6 different size Upset Testers to cover the widest range of testing needs.

Vale also offers a complete range of Sample Punches to punch metallurgical samples from metal strip.

Wire & Rod Handling Equipment

Vale Upender/Downender

Portable Rod Straighteners are used to straighten the leading edge of coiled stock so the wire can be easily fed into cold heading or drawing equipment.

Manual Banding Coil Compactors provide an affordable option for compacting and banding wire coils. Compacted coils are easier to handle, cost less to ship and take up less room in annealing ovens.
