Jewellery tool, craftsmen jewelry and wiredrawing.

The action of wiredrawing is to reduce a metal to wire passing it through a row with progressively smaller sizes to achieve the desired size.

It is known that 4600 years before Christ non-ferrous metal wires were already made. It was not until the 19th century in England that the use of specialized machinery for this work began.

To begin with the wire obtaining in our jewelry workshop we must start from a rolling mill with which we will obtain a rail or metal cylinder of a diameter sufficient to be able to be stretched and shaped later. This diameter should be such that it allows us to introduce the wire through the largest hole. The wiredrawing technique is a process made in cold.

We will gradually reduce its diameter by pulling it through the smaller holes in a steel plate called a drawplate or drawing board. This is mounted on a drawing bench or in a bench screw, we must take care not to damage the plate with the teeth.

There should not be much difference between one caliber and another on the drawplate, it is a process that has to be done slowly, and if there were a lot of difference the thread would be split by the enormous stress. The quality of this drawplate is very important, so in Diloy Tools we only manufacture it in steel hardened to the tungsten that offers greater durability for its excellent hardness and resistance. Take a look at our catalogue of drawplates, sure to find the right size you are looking for as well as the section you want. We have circular, square, semicircular, rectangular sections.
