The effect of spinning condition on the quality of Fe77.5Si7.5B15 (at%) wires produced by the In-Rotating-Water Spinning Method was examined experimentally. The diameter of the injection nozzle was 0.25 mm. Long continuous wires with round cross section were obtained when the molten-jet velocity νj was a little higher than the drum velocity νd, whereas the wire became meanderous with the increase in νjd. The heat of crystallization ΔH, which expresses the degree of non-crystallinity of the wire, remained almost constant for 0.77 < νjd < 1. For this case the wires were estimated to be almost amorphous judged from the X-ray diffraction pattern and the scanning electron micrograph. For 1 < νjd < 1.32, however, ΔH decreased with increasing νjd. The temperature distribution of the jet was measured by the photo-calorimetric method. For the water temperature of 10°C, the average cooling rate of the jet between 1470 to 1200 K, was found to be 6 × 104 to 9 × 104 K/s. The measured cooling rate did not show any correlation with ΔH. This indicated that the quality of the wire was determined by the cooling rate in the downstream region with a lower temperature.
