Individual lengths of straight rod or of cross-sections are drawn by this method. Source: Courtesy of The Babcock and Wilcox Company, Tubular Products Division. Multistage Wire-Drawing Figure 15.24 Two views of a multistage wire-drawing machine that is typically used in the making of copper wire for electrical wiring. Source: H. Auerswald. Roll Straightening Figure 15.22 Schematic illustration of roll straightening of a drawn round rod (see also Fig. 13.7). Wire and Bar Drawing Reducing the cross section of a bar, rod or wire by pulling it through a die. Bar drawing is generally in a batch mode while the wire drawing is in general in a continuous mode. pd Stresses and drawing pressure variation in deformation zone.
