Auto cold drawing machine is a must-have for manufacturers who need to draw out wire or tubing to a specific size and shape. This machinery can save time and improve the quality of the finished product. It also helps to ensure that the material isn’t damaged during the process. Whether you’re working with metal tubes or bars, these machines can be used for a wide range of applications.
The cold drawing process is similar to cold rolling and cold forming. Its main goal is to reduce the diameter or wall thickness of a piece of steel. This process can be used for a variety of purposes, from manufacturing screws and nuts to making linear guideways. It is often used in conjunction with a swaging machine, which is designed to reshape the end of a tube or pipe.
When the process is done correctly, it can make the material stronger, smoother, and more precise in shape. In addition, it can be used to reshape the cross section of a rod or bar. This can be done by reducing the diameter of the bar or by changing its shape. It is also possible to use this process to increase the tensile strength of the material.
In addition, the cold-drawn rods have a polished appearance. This is because they are drawn in a cold state, which causes impurities to flake off as the material passes through the die. The resulting effect is very beautiful, which is why it is so widely used.
One of the most important factors in the success of the cold-drawing process is the lubrication that is used. It is essential to ensure that the lubrication is evenly distributed across the entire surface of the die, which will prevent the formation of an oxide layer on the rod. Moreover, the lubrication should also be properly mixed and stored in order to maintain its effectiveness.
Another factor that influences the success of the drawing process is the temperature at which the dies are heated. It is necessary to maintain a stable temperature throughout the drawing cycle. This will prevent the formation of a solid layer on the dies, which can cause the drawing to fail.
The last factor that affects the success of the drawing process is the sensitivity of the metal to cold work. The tensile and yield strengths of the alloy increase with cold drawing, but their plastic properties decrease. The dependences on which these indicators change are unique to each type of alloy. It is therefore very important to accurately specify these parameters in the mathematical modeling of the drawing process.
HORENCO’s new line of swaging, cold drawing and straightening machines is packed with features that will take your business to the next level. Our new swaging machine is designed to reshape the ends of tubes and pipes, making them easier to connect with other materials. The cold drawing machine is perfect for manufacturers who need to draw out wire or tube to a particular size and shape, while the straightening machine will remove any bends from the finished products.
