Lubrication in the Wiredrawing Process

Wiredrawing requires lubrication between the wire reduction system and the wire surface to successfully perform the deformation process. The selection and type of lubricant used must consider various factors in order to achieve optimal quality, efficiency, production costs, and EH&S concerns. Understanding the material type, surface preparation, processing, and end use application is critical in the determination of lubricant selection. Knowledge of lubrication principles, lubrication systems, and operational mechanics form the basis for lubricant selection..
