The Die is an important part of the drawing process, but it is important to understand that it is a part of a
chain & its performance is linked to other parts like the machine, the lubricant, the raw material, etc. So, it
is important to make sure that all these elements work together in the best way possible.
Good maintenance of the drawing machine, filtration system, lubricant and capstans as well as high quality
raw material are essential to ensure a trouble free process. Nevertheless, even when all the drawing
condition are under control, the drawing process puts wear in the dies; the wire leaves marks on the
diamond surface and die maintenance becomes necessary.
