The Boca Bearing Company supplies bearings for the wire drawing and wire straightening industries. Grooved roller bearings are available in different materials. We can supply chrome, stainless and ceramic hybrid bearings suitable for wire drawing.
Wire drawing is a metalworking process used to reduce the cross-section of a wire by pulling the wire through a single, or series of, drawing dies. There are many applications for wire drawing, including electrical wiring, cables, tension-loaded structural components, springs, paper clips, spokes for wheels, and stringed musical instruments. Although similar in process, drawing is different from extrusion, because in drawing the wire is pulled, rather than pushed, through the die.
