This project outlines the design and commissioning of a multi-purpose drawing bench and pressure die chamber so as to coat fine wires. The pressure chamber was designed along similar lines to the pressure chambers used by previous researchers for Plasto-hydrodynamic die-less drawing of wire. The commissioning and future safe operation of the drawing bench have been described. The experimental proceedures and methods have been outlined. Investigations into a wide range of drawing conditions have been carried out. These include the polymer coating of wires of two different types of material, wires with three diameters, utilising three different dies and two different polymers. Results from these tests have been presented graphically. From the results contained in these graphs conclusions have been drawn and an outline for further research has been proposed.
