Useful Knowledge Shared For Tungsten Carbide Wire Drawing Dies

Posted by summer on April 27th, 2021

tungsten carbide wire drawing dies

Carbide wire drawing dies adopt high-quality tungsten carbide as the core, which has high hardness, good thermal conductivity and low friction coefficient. Tungsten carbide wire drawing dies are simple to produce with corrosion-resistant, impact-resistant, and low cost which is the outstanding feature of this product. It is suitable for the drawing of ferrous metals, large-size wires, and occasions with poor wire drawing conditions.

The Brands And Applications Of Tungsten Carbide Wire Drawing Dies

Wire drawing is the manufacturing process for reducing or changing the cross-section of the metal wire by using a series of stretched plates or molds. Carbide wire drawing die is a kind of tungsten carbide dies with wide applications in various fields.

The Precautions And Maintenance Of Tungsten Carbide Wire Drawing Dies

1. Ensure the stability of the drawing machine

Each drawing drum, over-line guides should be smooth, flexible, strictly controlled for beating tolerance. If the drum is found, the guide wheel has a worn trench and the drawing dies should be repaired in time.

2.Good lubrication

Good lubrication is important to ensure the surface quality of the wire and extend the service life of the mold. The lubrication index should be checked frequently, removing the copper powder, impurities in the lubricant, so that the equipment hole can not be polluted. If the lubrication doesn’t work, it must be replaced in time and clean it.

3. Reasonable allotype

Reasonable allotype is to ensure the surface quality of the wire and control size accuracy, reducing the wear of wire drawing drum and equipment operating load. For sliding wire drawing machines, it is necessary to familiarize with the mechanical elongation of the equipment. The sliding coefficient is reasonably selected, which is the primary step of fitting mold.

4. Appropriate adjustment of the size for the compression angle

The surface reduction rate of each drawing and the material of the drawn wire are also closely correlated with the compression angle of the respective mold. The size of the compression angle is appropriately adjusted according to the size of the surface reduction rate.

5.The timely replacement of the aging drawing dies

When the drawing die reaches the service life, please replace it in time for repairing treatment to avoid excessive causing scrap the wire.
