EASYDRUM Round Stitching & Stapling Wire
Dorstener Wire Drawing offers stitching and stapling wire in both round and flat specifications. Round stitching and stapling wire is used by the bookbinding, printing and packaging industries. DWD manufactures both standard and custom stitching and stapling wire. Our POWERBIND® and CLASSICBIND® lines of wire provide superior performance in high-speed bookbinding and stapling machinery.
CLASSICBIND® – Our standard grade of stitching wire for use with lower-speed stitchers and simple binding equipment. This grade is commonly kept in stock with a galvanized coating. It is economical and ready to ship when you need it.
POWERBIND® – A unique product that allows the user to reduce the wire diameter without sacrificing strength. POWERBIND® is a low carbon wire that performs like a high carbon wire but is more ductile and forgiving on stitching heads and components. It is specifically designed for high speed stitching equipment.
Proper packaging and spools are essential for product delivery and wire performance. DWD has several spool options to ensure a tangle free and even flow of stitching wire to your machinery. As spool dimensions can impact wire performance and cast of the wire, please consult with our staff to select the correct spool for your application.
DWD’s round wire is CPSIA (lead-free) compliant. Our stitching wire products are generally shipped within 24 hours of the order, allowing you to manage your production schedules efficiently and save on inventory costs.
