Complex and standard shape dies and plugs for the steel and plastic industries. We can machine them to very fine finishes and tight tolerances.
At Hardmetal Engineering we manufacture adjustable wire drawing dies; they are produced with highly-polished, specially-shaped holes through which wire is drawn to reduce its diameter.
When selecting wire drawing dies, wire material and drawing parameters are important specifications to consider. For hot drawing, cast-steel dies are used, whereas for steel wire drawing, a tungsten carbide die is used.
TC wire drawing dies are made from tungsten carbide, an extremely hard and scratch-resistant material. Tungsten carbide wire drawing dies are often used to draw thicker wires. The dies are placed in a steel casing, which backs the die and allow for easy die changes.
Our standard wire drawing dies have a defined reduction angle that reduces drawing force and provides uniform die-formation with a consistent surface finish.
