7 Benefits of Precision Cold Drawn Steel Pinion Rods & Wire

Benefits of Precision Cold Drawn Steel Pinion Rods

There are several different types of steel. They include hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, and finally, cold drawn steel. The first on this list is the kind that most people think of when they hear the word “steel.” This type of molded right after being melted down.

What is a Pinion Wire and How is it Manufactured using Cold Drawn Steel

UMFG Pinion Wire

Pinion wire serves a very specific purpose. This wire is used in many different industries, as it’s stronger than simple gears since the steel is shaped when cooled and the notches are built into it. If you’ve ever heard of the rack and pinion steering, then you’re already aware of one such purpose for this wire.

7 Places Where Cold Drawn Steel is Used


Cold drawn steel is an interesting product. There are three main types of steel processing. Hot rolled steel is exactly what it sounds like – the metal is sent through a series of rollers that shape it while it’s still hot. The same is true of cold rolled steel, the only difference being that the steel is cold as it goes through the shaping process.

A Quick Guide to Cold Drawn Precision Process

Cold Drawn Precision Process

Cold drawn steel is exactly what it sounds like – it’s cooled steel that is carefully hammered and drawn into the exact shapes needed. There are numerous advantages to this type of steel, including the fact that it’s much stronger than hot rolled steel (its tensile strength is greater), it looks nicer with its buffed finished, and it can be made into much longer parts. However, how is it made?
