Fort Wayne Wire Die: Wire Die Manufacturer

Diamond Orientation & Mounting

Diamond Orientation | Technology forged by Fort Wayne Wire Die. FWWD runs its single crystal natural diamonds through two critical preliminary operations: x-ray orientation and flattening. Using x-ray technology, FWWD can identify and select the correct plane for each diamond, maximizing abrasion resistance, die life and performance. Polishing two parallel flats on the diamond then ensures the proper orientation is intact through the manufacturing process.

Mounting | Next, FWWD mounts the diamonds in a unique powdered metal matrix. This adds compressive force, which improves die strength, reduces die breakage and dissipates heat generated during the wire drawing process.
