Metal fibres. Very fine wire can be produced by wire drawing. Production costs are, however, extremely high ... To overcome this problem, bundle drawing is the solution. ...

La seule difficulté réside dans le choix du matériau utilisé pour séparer les fibres avant la formation des faisceaux [...] Bien qu'elle (technique d'étirage en faisceau) permette de réduire considérablement les coûts d'étirage et de recuit, cette méthode ne permet pas d'obtenir des bobines de fibres individuelles.
