The production method of cold drawing is nothing but a precision process of decreasing the cross-sectional diameter of the tube by cold drawing method through smaller dies without pre-heating the material to increase its tensile strength. The process will be used to make or shape a variety of different bars in both regular steel and stainless steel.
Different Cold Drawing Process
- Deep drawing and Shallow drawing
- Bar drawing
- Tube drawing
- Wire drawing
Benefits of cold drawn
There are several benefits of using cold drawn steel parts. Most likely and the most important benefit is that cold-drawn steel parts have tighter tolerances and improved straightness. Another advantage is that the improved surface end. One will simply tell a difference between a hot rolled bar and a cold-rolled bar just from its appearance. Improved mechanical properties and better yield and tensile strengths are also major edges of cold-drawn steel. All of those edges add up to the last major advantage that is cost-effectiveness.
- Manufactured with a more accurate measurement along with sharper corner.
- Improved yield strength and tensile strength.
- Cold drawn steel parts have improved surface finish.
- Reduce machining losses.
