|Coiling apparatus and method|
Pre-straightening the wire before storing it in loops inside the cylindrical drum 34 allows for a more consistent pocket spring, and ultimately a flatter spring unit/mattress as any pre-stressing of the wire, caused by the drawing process used to manufacture it, is neutralised leaving the wire largely stress-free. This means that there is no need to compensate for, or break, the forces inherent in the wire before feeding it to the coiler.
