Our proprietary formula, powder processing expertise and unique firing cycle create outstanding mechanical properties that differentiate Izory®. We know it has to work every time, so rest assured that we check the critical properties on every batch to ensure it has the strength, corrosion resistance and toughness to keep your equipment running.
We value the relationships we develop with our customers and understand the importance of personal service. Our applications engineers travel the world for face-to-face meetings with our customers to discuss their needs and to ensure we understand the nuisances of their processes. This foundation is used to create customer-specific drawings and develop manufacturing and inspection plans at our factory.
Izory® has to be made to exacting tolerances and pristine finishes to optimize its performance. To ensure our wire parts meet those requirements, we have dedicated inspectors to check every part with calibrated state-of-the-art equipment including profilometers, CMMs and optical comparators. The laser marking we add to each part provides comprehensive traceability. We can add a custom mark to help your inventory management and can provide certifications to ease or eliminate incoming inspection.
On-time delivery is necessary for planning maintenance and keeping adequate safety stock, so our customer service and manufacturing teams meet regularly to ensure your orders stay on track.

Rod Rings & Step-Cones for Rod Breakdowns
Refractron partners with you to replace worn out rings or metal for Rod Breakdown (RBD) machines. We can provide long lasting, pristine Izory® rod rings or complete step-cone assemblies to help increase wire production and improve wire quality. Refractron manufactures and stocks large rings for several models of equipment made by SYNCRO, SAMP, HENRICH, VAUGHN, and NIEHOFF. If we don’t have the rod rings that you need, we can often tap into our large inventory of blanks or our experienced mechanical engineers can reverse engineer replacement rod rings for your RBD machines. If drawings are available, the fit and function of the part can be verified at your site by our engineer to minimize risk and machine downtime. If drawings are not available or you are not sure what you need, Refractron can meet with you on site to measure components via a portable CMM, create drawings, modify designs if required, and provide a detailed audit report with insight from our experienced designers.
Rolls and Assemblies for Multiwires
Refractron manufactures multiwire rolls (capstans) for drawing machines made by Niehoff, SAMP, Henrich and MFL. We have engineering and design resources to re-engineer carbide coated steel capstans on older machines into an Izory® steel assemblies and audit existing rolls when drawings are not available. We keep stock of many standard multiwire rolls and maintain blanks that allow us to respond to unplanned issues. Please ask us about our latest material evolution Izory® HD.
Single Wire Step-Cones and Rings
Refractron is an experienced manufacturer of complete step-cones as well as replacement rings for a variety of single wire machines including those made by SAMP, Niehoff, Syncro, and Henrich. For the most severe applications ask us about our latest material development Izory® HD to help extend the life of your draw rings, improve wire quality and reduce downtime associated with troublesome wire breaks.
Pulleys, Guides and Eyelets
Refractron can help if you have a roller, pulley, guide or eyelet that is a maintenance head ache or that wears so quickly it is damaging your wire or cable. We have existing designs or our experienced engineer will help tailor something for your lines. Our product offering includes a variety of material solutions.
