wire drawing
What is wire drawing?

Wire drawing is an operation to produce wire of various sizes within certain specific tolerances. The process involves reducing the diameter of rods or wires by passing them through a series of wire drawing dies with each successive die having smaller bore diameter than the one preceding it. The final wire size is reached as the wire passes through the last die in the series.
