Wire Solutions when you need them

Eddie Wire Solutions is the perfect companion when you are inside the factory. It has powerful calculators inside to calculate wire die strings and production volume.

No internet is required to use the app once you have it downloaded, and the app is safe to use. No ads are displayed, and no data is shared with us.

Our vision is to provide solutions that help you manufacture better, faster and cheaper and we hope that this app helps you to lower your total cost of ownership (TCO).

For that reason, we always listen to our customers and continually add new features.

Eddie Wire Solutions has 4 build-in calculators (more on that below).

Before starting to use the app, you may want to check Eddie's settings first. Tap on Settings (at the top-right) and choose the appearance you prefer (light or dark), make sure the correct measurement unit is chosen and choose a wire material you are producing. We hope the proper language and the correct Esteves location is chosen. If not, then you can update these here.

Please read on to find out more about the app.

Wire - Drawing die size calculations made easy

If you would like to automatically calculate a constant-elongation set, press the home button in the top-left corner and select “string”. You may be surprised how easily and quickly you can calculate a full constant draft elongation string.

The wire-calculator is used to manually calculate drawing die sizes and sequences for non-constant draft machines.

  1. Start off by choosing the way to build the set; from small-to-large or from large-to-small.
  2. Once you have made your choice, you'll always have to enter a combination of two items. Enter the size first and then provide either wire elongation, reduction or the next size. Just try it, you'll see that the other fields are automatically calculated.
  3. Build the set by pressing the plus-button at the top-right of your screen. The next size of your set will be inserted into the table below. If your elongation or predicted size changes you can manually adjust these at any point.

We try to make the app as user friendly as possible. If the functionality is not entirely clear or if you have a request, then please contact us and we will be happy to help or forward your request to our developers.

Calculate wire strings in seconds

Never before has such functionality been placed in a mobile device!

This section is used for calculating die strings (also called die sets) for constant elongation/reduction drawing machines. If your machine is a non-constant draft drawing machine, press the home button in the top-left corner and select “wire”.

Just enter your incoming wire size (start size), finish size, and provide the elongation to have the app calculate an entire die string. If there are there more dies required than your machine can take, then provide the number of drafts of your machine and Eddie will recalculate the set and match the maximum drafts.

Press the button at the bottom-left to share this calculation by email or text, or to store it inside your notes.

Easily calculate wire production output

Eddie Wire Solutions is the perfect companion when you are inside the factory.

Would you like to know how long it will take to produce a certain amount (by length or by weight) of wire or cable?
Would you like to know how much you can produce in a given amount of time? There's even a field for the uptime of your machine!
Have a multi-wire machine (or multiple machines) then simply increase the amount of wires.

First make sure you have the correct wire material selected. Above the table, to the right, is a “change” button that takes you to the “wire material alloy” section inside Eddie's settings.

Just enter diameter and speed, then select either hours, length or weight, and let Eddie do its magic.

Quickly convert between units

Quite helpful on the shop floor… The ultimate converter for the wire and cable industry!

Quickly calculate the wire cross section from a diameter (or the other way around). Or convert between inches and AWG sizes. As you may notice, entering a size in one of the boxes will instantly calculate all other dimensions.

Or convert tensile strengths between Mega Pascals (MPa) to pounds per square inches (psi).

And even convert feet per minute to meters per second or degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

Would you like to see another conversion to be added? We are making this app for you, thus please let us know.

More than 90 alloys included

To calculate the production volume, we need to use the specific mass of the wire (or cable) that is produced. For that reason, we have included many wire alloys. These materials are grouped in sections of Aluminum alloys, Beryllium, Carbon steels, Copper alloys, Low expansion alloys, Magnesium alloys, Nickel alloys, Noble metals, Refractory metals, Stainless steels, Titanium alloys, Zinc alloys.

Can't find your material, then you can use the search button at the top-right of your screen (the icon is a bit tiny - we're working on that). If you tap that button, then a small search bar will become visible below the density field. This may help you find your wire material quickly.

Missing a wire material, or do you find the density needs correcting, then please let us know by contacting your sales representative.

Did you know that we take your wire alloy into account when we engineer our drawing dies to your machine? Learn more here>

Find your Esteves Group contact

This section provides a quick glance at a selection of sales representatives for your area.

Next to the sales representative you will find two buttons. To text your sales rep then click the topmost button with a callout-symbol. Tapping that button will bring up your text messaging app.

If you like to send an email, then click the lower of the two buttons. That button will initiate your default email app and places the sales person's email address in the to-field.

By the way, the app is 100% safe to use and is absolutely not (and not capable to) see any of your emails or text messages as we are using your text and your email client's send-functionality only. That means that these features are 100% safe to use.

Additionally, to the right of the address in the top of the contact-screen, there is a pinpoint button. Pressing that button will place the coordinates of the Esteves Group facility in your default navigation program. This may be helpful if you like to visit Esteves Group.
