Cold drawn steel can be found in many consumer products that we use on a daily basis, as it has the physical and appealing characteristics that make it useful for many products. We’ve answered some common questions asked when it comes to cold drawn steel, also known as cold finished steel.
Steel that is drawn passes through a series of dies to achieve a desired shape is known as drawn steel. Dies apply specified amount of pressures with the help of a machine press, and the steel starting stock typically has to be passed through the die or a series of dies more than once. Cold refers to the drawn steel being manufactured at room temperature, which requires additional pressure to shape the steel, but gives the steel extra qualities and visually aesthetic appearance.
Cold drawn steel can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but it is commonly manufactured as bar or wire. The diameter of steel bars varies, and shapes of the bars are often determined by how you look at them straight on, which may include flat, square, round and hex bar shape. Steel wire is often manufactured to the customer’s specifications, and may come in different types of finishes.
The automotive industry demands a large amount of cold drawn steel products, including vehicle axles, spokes, and wheel spindles. Cold drawn steel is used to make fasteners, hand tools, cables, bolts and paper clips.
