Excellent conductivity through the use of diamond coated dies enable cable makers to cut costs.
State-of-the-art diamond coating technology and tight diameter tolerances of Esteves Group diamond coated dies give the cable company the ability to save material and manufacturing costs.
The ultra-smooth layer of diamond on a tungsten carbide die ensures the smoothest wire and cable surface that is possible today. The diamond coated die is the ideal combination of the large-size availability of tungsten carbide and the ideal surface properties of randomly oriented synthetic diamond.
A smoother conductor surface leads to higher conductivity than was previously obtainable by using tungsten carbide or PCD dies. This enables a cable manufacturer to save conductor material as the same conductivity is obtained with a lighter cable. Diamond coated dies reduce the power required to bunch, strand, or compact the conductor by minimizing friction.
Material savings and lower power usage add up to more profit.
