Matched Elongation Die Sets
Optimize the performance efficiency of your high-speed, multiwire drawing operation with breakthrough science from Fort Wayne Wire Die.
Using proprietary software, Fort Wayne Wire Die can calculate a complete, integrated wire die set with hole tolerances precisely matched to your wire drawing machine's elongation, to effectively:
- Eliminate wire breaks.
- Reduce downtime.
- Minimize wire slip on the machine capstans for optimum wire surface finish and reduced capstan wear.
- Reduce fine generation or die “packing.”
Physical elongation is especially important for die series smaller than .016in (0.40mm).
Types of Dies Used
Either single crystal diamond (SCD) dies or polycrystalline diamond (PCD) dies, or a combination of both, may be used in most multiwire drawing machines.
Matched die sets are recommended for all multiwire drawing machines and are useful for single-wire drawing machines where reducing the amount of slip is advantageous to the drawing process.
Fort Wayne Wire Die has engineered matched dies sets for machines that draw up to 40 wires simultaneously and use more than 500 dies.
