Tungsten Carbide Wire Dies Precision Die Service (now know as Dixie Precision has provided America's Wire Industry with Wire Drawing Dies since 1970 We have refurbished over 2 million dies in the last 40 years.
Our die shop's only focus is the old fashioned tungsten carbide round wire drawing dies. These are known in the industry by several names,including "carbide dies", "round dies", "regular dies" and "traditional dies". We offer new cores as well as several die reworking programs. i.e recuts, recutting, finish & finishing We refer to these programs as lease and exchange.
We polish and size, resize and tungsten carbide wire dies. Dixie Precision can provide you with rough cores. We also have a finished wire drawing dies, and a wire die recutting program

Questions about Dies and Wire Drawing?
Drawing dies are typically made of tool steel, tungsten carbide, or diamond, with tungsten carbide and manufactured diamond being the most common. Synthetic diamond is usually used in the early stages of the drawing process, whereas natural diamond dies are used in the final stages. For drawing very fine wire a single crystal diamond die is used. For hot drawing, cast-steel dies are used. For steel wire drawing, a tungsten carbide die is used. The dies are placed in a steel casing, which backs the die and allow for easy die changes. Die angles usually range from 6–15°, and each die has at least 2 different angles: the entering angle and approach angle. Wire dies usually are used with power as to pull the wire through them. There are coils of wire on either end of the die which pull and roll up the wire with a reduced diameter.
The reduction of the diameter of a metal rod or wire by pulling it through a die. The working region of dies are typically conical (see illustration). The tensile stress on the drawn wire, that is, the drawing stress, must be less than the wire's yield strength. Otherwise the drawn section will yield and fail without pulling the undrawn wire though the die. Because of this limitation on the drawing stress, there is a maximum reduction that can be achieved in a single drawing pass. After large drawing reductions, wires or rods develop crystallographic textures or preferred orientations of grains. The textures are characteristic of the crystal structure of the metal.

Making of wire, generally from a rod or bar. The wire-drawing process consists of pointing the rod, threading the pointed end through a die, and attaching the end to a drawing block. The block, made to revolve by an electric motor, pulls the lubricated rod through the die, reducing it in diameter and increasing its length. Fine wire is made by a multiple-block machine, because the reduction cannot be performed in a single draft.
