Synthetic Single Crystal Dies

High-performance synthetic single crystal diamond dies allow wire manufacturers to meet wire surface quality and dimension standards.

Wire drawing dies are commonly used to reduce the diameter of various ferrous and non-ferrous rods and wires. Applications include high, medium and low voltage cables, automotive, medical wire, superconducting, and bonding wire.

Synthetic single crystal diamond drawing dies (SSCD dies) give the wire manufacturer the ability to produce the smallest sizes of wires with uniform wire roundness and high surface quality while meeting or exceeding the required wire diameter tolerances.

SSCD dies enable long drawing die life with long lasting dimensional tolerances, even for high demanding applications. Esteves Group SSCD drawing dies are manufactured with a mirror polish and a smooth wire entry to ensure optimal die life and string-up.

Higher throughput, fewer die changes, less scrap, and higher quality all add up to more profit for the wire and cable manufacturer.
