Wire drawing enhances several key properties of the wire, making it suitable for demanding applications:

  • Increased Tensile Strength: The drawing process aligns the metal’s grain structure, which improves tensile strength and reduces brittleness.
  • Improved Surface Finish: The reduction in diameter and the polishing effect of the die result in a smoother surface finish.
  • Enhanced Ductility: Depending on the material and drawing conditions, the wire can become more ductile, allowing it to be drawn into finer diameters without breaking.
  • Uniform Diameter: The process ensures a consistent wire diameter, which is critical for applications requiring precise electrical or mechanical performance.
