What is wire drawing machine?
The wire drawing machine is a fully automatic device used in the metalworking industry to reduce the wire to the required diameter by pulling the wire through a series of wire drawing dies with decreasing diameters. And it always used to make nails with the nail making machine. The machine is widely used nowadays and has two or more drums that grip the wire and pull it through the dies with high output. And it can produce wire diameters ranging from 2mm to 8mm. There are several types of wire drawing machines, including the combined drum wire drawing machine, straight line wire drawing machine, water tank wire drawing machine for binding wire, and horizontal single drum wire drawing machine.
As one of China’s most professional wire drawing machine manufacturers, we specialize in designing, manufacturing, and selling wire drawing machines and have a good presence in international markets, such as Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Saudi Africa, Turkey, America, Brazil, etc. We focus on machine quality and offer professional after-sale service for customers who buy wire drawing machines.
Advantages of wire drawing machine
The advantages of wire drawing machine are mainly reflected in the following aspects:
- High production efficiency. Modern wire drawing machines have programmable controls and automated features for efficient production with minimal supervision.
- Precise diameter control. The diameter of the drawn wire can be accurately controlled by selecting dies with precision-machined holes. Fine wire gauges can be obtained using multiple draws.
- Smooth surface. The wire drawing machine produces wires with a smooth, bright surface finish, and no finishing is required.
- Cost saving. Processing metal materials through wire drawing machines can reduce labor costs and material waste, thereby reducing production costs.
- Easy to operate. The operation of the wire drawing machine is relatively simple, requiring only a small number of personnel to operate and maintain.
- Strong scalability. The wire drawing machine can be processed through different wire drawing molds, so it is suitable for metal materials of different specifications and shapes and has strong scalability.

Components of wire drawing machine
Wire reel: It is used to place the original wire coil. The wire is unwound from the reel and fed into the machine.
Wire drawing die: The die is a tool with a hole through which the diameter of the wire is reduced. The mold is usually made of tungsten carbide.
Capstan: The capstan is a rotating drum that helps feed and pull the wire through the die. It provides drawing force and speed control for the drawing process.
Drawing die box: It is a device for placing wire drawing powder and drawing dies.
Wire drawing lubricants: The wire passes through wire drawing powder before entering the drawing die to reduce the friction between the wire and the die.
Auxiliary equipments for wire drawing machine
The wire drawing machine is used to reduce the diameter of the wire by pulling the wire through a series of dies. The following two auxiliary equipment are necessary to ensure the machine’s smooth operation and improve the drawn wire’s quality.
- Sharpening mill. Before feeding the wire into the drawing machine, the wire tip needs to be sharpened or tapered to pass through the drawing die.
- Butt welding machine. The butt welding machine is one of the classic resistance welding processes used in metal processing. It is mainly used for welding small diameter wires, rods and plates. Its working principle is to connect broken wires under high pressure, then fully heat the contact area and apply pressure to weld them together, ensuring the continuous operation of the wire drawing machine. The heat source of the welding process is the current resistance of the two opposite surfaces.
Wire drawing machine price
The wire drawing machine price is mainly different from the drum quantity. Here are some typical price ranges:
one drum: USD2000-4000
two drums: USD4000-8000
Three drums: USD8000-16000
