It’s a patent: the extra-long cone drawing die VFB.4

As anticipated in our previous news article, the new Vassena VFB.4 extra-long cone die has officially been patented. When applied to the wire drawing, it allows countless benefits in terms of lubrication, wear resistance, and quality.
Thanks to a recess carved inside the die’s cone, which acts as a pressure insert, this new special tool allows to merge a die and a pressure insert in a single device.
The VFB.4 die is the latest in a series of innovations for the wire drawing world by the Italian company Vassena, which has been committed to researching and developing new materials, technologies, and geometries for over 60 years.
Vassena has always done its best to improve the processing yield and performance by working closely with drawing mills and wire & rope manufacturers, as well as raw material and machine producers.
