Abstract : Tin coated copper wire was reduced 38 percent with and without an ultrasonic radiation environment and at draw velocities up to 243 ft/min. Results show a decrease in draw force with increase in energy density to the wire. No effect was observed on draw force with increased draw velocity if energy density remained constant. (Author)
