Wiredrawing Lubricant Technology

Presenter: David Gzesh

10:15 am - 11:00 am

Fundamentals General Track


The wiredrawing process generates significant heat that affects its ability to ensure quality wire production. The amount of generated heat is influenced by the interaction of factors that include the metal composition, surface preparation, production equipment and routine maintenance. This presentation reviews basic lubrication principles, typical lubricant compositions, and routine lubricant maintenance procedures for both ferrous dry drawing and ferrous and nonferrous wet drawing.
