Auto cold drawing machine is a chain-type machine of which is used to draw metallic tubes and bars with consideration in precision. It is widely applied to a wide range of industrial products that require re-sizing and strict tolerance. This machine is easy to operate and low in maintenance costs. It can be used for a variety of metals such as carbon steel, ball bearing steel, stainless steel and other nonferrous alloys. It can also be used for drawing hex-bars, square and rectangular metal bars. It can be a real time-saver for manufacturers who need to get their products into the right size and shape without damaging them.
It is important to know that the deformation process of cold drawing has a significant influence on the mechanical properties of the material. The work hardening effect that this deformation has can be controlled by the use of different heat treatment regimes. Depending on the type of material, cold drawing can have a positive effect on the tensile strength of the material. In addition, the surface of the material can be improved by the use of this process. This can be useful for making springs or other applications that need a good surface quality.
In order to optimize the conditions for each machine and wire size, it is important to perform computer simulations of the drawing process. These simulations will help to predict performance by estimating factors such as the ratio of drawing stress to ultimate tensile strength, drawing force and back tension. In addition, the amount of heat generated by the deformation process can also be estimated.
A comparison of the experimental drawing forces with the calculated values shows that the mathematical model developed is adequate for predicting the results of cold drawing. However, it is necessary to further improve the accuracy of the calculation of energy-power parameters of the drawing process. It is recommended that these technological parameters such as the die half-angle, drawing speed and friction coefficient should be entered into the program as constant real values.
