Schmidt single wire capstan drawing machines have significant advantages. The wire bending at the inlet is much less than with cone drawing machines due to the constant capstan diameter. As a result, the stress on the wire material is less meaning that it can be pulled without the risk of wire failure. Whenever the quality of the end product is particularly important, the disc drawing machines are the key to success.
In addition to the multi capstan drawing machines with fixed increments, Schmidt has developed a new series of multi capstan drawing machines with reduced slip. Each pulley has its own drive, so the wire elongation can be freely selected for each step. This means flexibility that was previously not possible when used with a wide variety of wire materials. Schmidt also makes this machine available as a laboratory machine so that you can determine the best possible drawing die extension for your application.
