There are a number of issues associated with traditional methods of Wire and Tube Drawing caused by FRICTION.
It restricts the amount of reduction that can be achieved in a single pass.
Can play a major part in energy costs.
Can affect surface finish.
Creates high die costs due to wear and upsizing.
Restricts the choice of drawing lubricants.
The Ultraswage 2000 Ultrasonic Wire and Tube Drawing System virtually eliminates the friction created at the point of draw.
It is suitable for ferrous and non-ferrous metals and has been found to be effective with difficult to draw materials.
