Rotating Die Units

Rotating die holders are a very easy way to increase productivity and reduce die wear on wire drawing lines. The die itself is continuously being cooled by means of re-circulating water around the die as the die rotates around the wire during the wire drawing operation. Lubrication boxes are also provided to hold dry or liquid lubricants.

Advantages over Stationary Die Units are :

  • Longer die life - slower & even die wear
  • Less wire breaks - cooler drawing temperatures
  • Less maintenance down-time
  • Eliminates oval die wear higher wire tolerance
  • Reduce drawing temperatures
  • Improved lubrication of wire
  • Improved Wire finish - less wire scarring
  • Faster line speeds

Special Indirect Cooling

  • Die is indirectly cooled through a special re-circulating mechanism
  • This system avoids maintenance issues with leaky gaskets
  • Avoids possibility of seizing the rotating mechanism due to leaks
