* Draw Down Ratio in a tubular die is defined as the ratio of the cross-sectional area of the annular die opening to the cross-sectional area of the finished insulation . In the case of wire , it ’ s the ratio of the cross-sectional area of the extruded plastic melt to the cross sectional area of the plastic in its final product form , be it a tube , hose or insulation on a core , such
as a wire or cable . It is the extent to which the plastic has been reduced in size to make the part . A larger DDR enables faster production rates , while a lower DDR facilitates more precise control of the product dimensions . A low draw down ratio process is more stable than a high one .
** Draw Ratio Balance describes the balance between the rate the outside of the cone draws down , and the rate the inside of the cone draws down . Most products made by drawing a plastic melt are smaller in cross sectional area than the tooling gap .
