About us


DRAHT and WIRE are the leading magazines serving the spring, wire and cable industry. They promote the exchange of information and forge contacts between outfitters and suppliers, service companies, buyers and research. The main industries we cater for include mechanical and plant engineering, automotive construction, the manufacturers of technical wire-based springs as well as the shipbuilding, aviation and electrical industries. DRAHT and WIRE are members of the International Wire & Machinery Association (IWMA). DRAHT is also a member of the VDKM, the German wire and cable machinery manufacturers association, and the VDFI, the German spring manufacturers association and is the mouthpiece of the International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP). WIRE is the reporting organ of the International Cold Forging Group (ICFG).


DRAHT and WIRE are journalistic specialist magazines appearing in German and English respectively. They are published not only in a printed edition but also on the internet www.draht-magazin.de and www.wire-magazine.de. WIRE appears as an E-paper and is complemented by the e-mail-newsletter. Compact and highly readable original contributions from the industry and the world of science shed light on state-of-the-art trends, techniques and technologies in the spring, wire and cable industry. News items from the specialist associations on developments in the sector and within companies are clearly structured. Reports on products needed in the production of wire and cable and on the industry itself are clearly set out and quickly accessible. DRAHT and WIRE are filled with compact and concise information which is much denser than that found in comparable publications. Our commitment is to providing maximum benefit for our readers. More extensive research findings are channelled as Whitepaper into our website www.umformtechnik.net.
