Cables and Wires Solutions
A fundamental part of our daily life, cables and wires are flexible, typically cylindrical rods of metal. They are designed for carrying electricity and for bearing physical stresses and loads.
Producing metal wire involves a number of different processes including casting, cold working, forging, extruding, drawing, and rolling. These can be classified into groups of processes that include casting processes, joining and assembly processes, deformation processes, material removal processes, heat treating processes, and finishing processes.
Selection of metal wire is usually based first on a design’s required size and shape, and then on either material types or grades as certain design specifications or application constraints require. Substitute materials can be selected and qualified based on the required material properties.
