Versirion-and-Versimax-Die-Blanks-opt.jpg

Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures Versimax, a ceramic-bonded diamond composite with exceptional wear resistance, mechanical strength, and high temperature performance. Our Versimax family of products includes die blanks (nibs) for:

  • Wire drawing
  • Wire stranding
  • Bunching
  • Compacting applications

VERSIMAX™ WIRE DIE BLANKS

Versimax wire die blanks are self-supported and do not have carbide support rings. They are available in custom sizes and shapes and are prepared according to customer specifications.

Both simple shapes (cylinders, rectangular, triangular prisms, etc.) and more complicated geometries (conical shapes, hollow cylinders, negative features, etc.) can be produced.

Versimax can be attached to tungsten carbide or steel by furnace brazing. Tools can also be produced by press fitting, heat shrink fitting, adhesive bonding, or mechanical fixturing.
