Development of flat copper wire
- Jul 25, 2018 -

Introduction:

Wires are able to carry electrical energy which are divided into bare wire, magnet wire and insulated wire. Bare wires have no insulating layers, including copper, aluminum flat wires, aerial strands, and various sections (such as profile lines, bus bars, copper bars, aluminum bars, etc.). It is mainly used for outdoor overhead and indoor busbars and switch boxes.


Features:

Electromagnetic wire is an insulated wire that generates a magnetic field after being energized or induces a current in a magnetic field. It is mainly used for motor and transformer windings and other related electromagnetic equipment. The conductor is mainly a copper wire, and should have a thin insulating layer and good electrical and mechanical properties, as well as heat, moisture, solvent resistance and other properties. Different insulation materials can be used to obtain different characteristics.


Development:

First of all, the increasing demand for power, light and communication has kept demand high for wire and cable. Second, building wires will remain the biggest market and will followed by fiber optic wire and power. Talking about the power sector, copper holds high significance in terms of usage and consumption in this sector. The world average per capita copper consumption is around 2.7 kg. Electrical sector is the largest user of copper in India. Since copper and its alloy components play a vital role in electricity generation, distribution and utilisation, 12-15% per annum demand growth in this sector is possible, if good quality is assured. In the following year?Asia Pacific market is expected to grow through the forecast period.
