Barbed Wire

Barbed Wire Production:

Barbed wire production initiated as small and medium
scale basis. Galvanized barbed wire is classified into
three categories; Classes I, II, and III. Class I has
the thinnest coating and the shortest life expectancy.

A wire with Class I coating will start showing general
rusting in 8 to 10 years while the same wire with Class
III coating will show rust in 15 to 20 years.

The aluminum-coated wire is occasionally used and yields
a longer life. Barbed wire is generally used for security
purpose. Barbed wire is very popular for fencing in the
construction industry.

Market Potential: Barbed wire is an essential item to
safeguard houses, gardens, forests, nurseries and specified
prohibited areas pertaining to the defense establishment,
railways, aerodromes, warehouses and other Govt. and Private
properties. They are essential items to make and safeguard

Business Registration: You will need to obtain several
registration and licenses from Government authority.

Registration with ROC. Starting a small scale unit, register
your business as OPC (One Person Company). Otherwise, you
can form LLP, Pvt. Ltd. or Ltd. Company.

Apply for UdyogAadhaar MSME registration, Obtain Trade License
from local Municipal Authority. Obtain VAT Registration.

Obtain NOC from state Pollution Control Board, Apply for
BIS Certification.

Investment: Barbed wire production unit includes land,
building and machinery. You can initiate the manufacturing
operation with a rental unit shade.

For machinery, you can invest your own capital or apply
for the term loan. Capital cost includes raw material,
rent, human resource, transport with other operating cost.

Machines & Raw Materials: You need to procure some simple
machines. Automatic barbed wire making machine, Bench
grinding machine Universal tensile testing machine, Wrap
torsion testing machine, weighing scale, testing equipment

Barbed Wire Production Process: Produce the barbed wires
from an automatic machine. You will need to have the
12/14 SWG MS Galvanized wires for manufacturing. While
two main line wires are fed into the machines through
its axes, another wire is fed into the machines through
its axes; another wire is fed across into the pair of
line wires, to form barbs at required intervals.

The line wire twines them automatically the point wire,
after forming the desired barbs strands with the line
wires automatically at the desired distance, thus forming
the complete barbed wire.

You can control all its feeding and wire cutting mechanism by
gear movements. It drives power from the main electric motor
attached to the machine. Once the machine is set up it goes
on working automatically.

Process Flow Chart:
Wire feeding → Tensioning → Twisting → Reeling → Dispatch
You can start barbed wire production business as a home based,
you have some extra space for the manufacturing operation.

Wishing you all the best,
