Carbide Drawing Dies

Carbide drawing dies are widely used in drawing metal and non-metal industry. They can be used in drawing steel wires, steel bars, and tubes, etc. And air condition tubes are drawn by carbide floating plug which is a very special drawing tool.

Tungsten carbide drawing die is produced by powder metallurgy with components of tungsten carbide and cobalt. Because of the high wear resistance, excellent polishing, small adhesion, and small friction, our carbide drawing dies can provide a long lifetime.

Types of carbide drawings die

copper-wire drawing

Carbide Wire Drawing Dies

The wire drawing process involves drawing a wire of a larger diameter through a die with a smaller diameter bore. This reduces the diameter of the wire to produce the desired size and tolerance of the wire, while the volume remains the same.

bronze bar

Carbide Bar Drawing Die

Drawing bars and rods is similar to drawing wires, only they tend to be much thicker. A wide variety of metals are used for this purpose, including many steel and copper alloys.

bronze tubes

Carbide Tube Drawing Dies

The process is similar to the wire drawing process. However, a mandrel is used to form the inner dimensions of the tubing. The mandrel is placed at the throat of the die and used to determine the wall thickness and inner diameter. A properly formed mandrel will provide for a smooth surface on the inside of the tube or pipe.
