carbide dies for steel wires
now browsing by tag
Tungsten Carbide is extensively used in the making of wire drawing dies for steel wire , like M.S (Mild Steel) , High carbon steel, low carbon steel , CHQ(Cold Heading Quality) Steel , EQ (Electrode Quality)Steels are easily drawn from these carbide dies. Apart from Steels, copper, aluminium, brass , solder wires and various other alloys are also drawn from these wire dies.
The die profile in case of steel wire drawing is quite different than that for copper or aluminium wire dies. To get the best results, bearing length in case of steel wire drawing is approximately around 75 to 100 percent of the wire size to be drawn. Also reduction angle is around 12 -16 degrees.
