PCD Wire Drawing Dies

As a business unit of US Synthetic Corporation, US Synthetic Wire Die manufactures the longest-lasting polycrystalline diamond (PCD) wire dies available, which allows wire mills to pull more pounds of wire per dollar spent on dies.

Our technical expertise in PCD enables development of the unique material used in our wire dies. In fact, we’re the only wire die manufacturer that also presses its own PCD inserts. Pressing the diamond core and finishing the die to exact specifications offers customers a durable, high-performance product that draws more pounds of wire per dollar.

A Commitment to Innovation, Service, and Quality

State-of-the-art diamond sintering processes—including proprietary cubic presses that apply nearly 1 million pounds of uniform pressure and generate temperatures of 1,400° Celsius—are used to synthesize the industry's strongest, most durable wire dies. In-house abrasion tests have shown US Synthetic Wire Die materials to have dramatically better performance than leading competitors. In fact, in two stainless steel wire mills, US Synthetic dies lasted more than twice as long as other PCD dies. We work directly with our wire mill clients to customize materials and dimensions, all backed by a 100% quality guarantee. If a US Synthetic Wire Die doesn't perform as expected, we'll replace it for free.
