Wire drawing is a metalworking process that shapes and reduces a wire rod by pulling it through a die that is smaller than the wire rod. The amount of change in the shape of the wire is dependent on an assortment of variables including the wire material, wire temperature, amount of pulling force the wire drawing machine can produce and the drawing lubricant being used. The wire is first pointed then loaded on a payoff. The pointed end of the wire is fed into a bull block or multi block wire drawing machine. A bull block is a wire drawing machine that has a single die and capstan whereas a multi block wire drawing machine will have several dies and capstans in succession. On a conventional wire drawing machine the drawn wire is recoiled on the capstan until the entire coil has been drawn through the die or dies then removed with a stripper. An inverted or dead block begins stripping the drawn wire from the capstan after five to ten wraps of wire have been drawn. Contact Casey Equipment for a quote on used wire drawing machines for sale.
