Product category: Wire rod, Wire for use in the automotive and aircraft industries
Continuous Cast Rod
AURUBIS ROD is the ideal starting product for further processing and can be drawn or rolled into individual wires, braids, cable, enameled wire, flat wire and profiles. The very good qualities of our rod ease our customers processing significantly. The uniformly high quality and purity mean that our rod is much sought after for demanding applications. Whether in electrical engineering, infrastructure, energy technology, automotive engineering or aviation: AURUBIS ROD has gained an outstanding reputation in nearly all applications over the last four decades.
Foxrod for wire drawing AURUBIS FOXROD combines < 3 ppm oxygen content with high electrical conductivity. Moreover, it contains almost no impurities. These characteristics make AURUBIS FOXROD an excellent starting product for processing all types of copper wire, including extra fine wires. Foxrod is used for wires for which hydrogen embrittlement is an issue, such as fire-resistant cables.
Foxrod for continuous extrusion AURUBIS FOXROD is perfectly suited to continuous extrusion applications thanks to its very clean metallic surface free of organic elements. Special attention is given to purity throughout the FOXROD manufacturing process. Furnaces and casting dies are made out of copper-repulsive, chemically inert materials to avoid possible contamination. The rod is produced without any protective wax, while special measures are taken to avoid oxidation of the rod.
The AURUBIS SHAPES product portfolio includes a number of dimensions in round and square cross-sections, i.e. cakes and billets, and offers a range of materials that encompasses oxygen-bearing and oxygen-free materials in addition to High Performance Alloys. AURUBIS SHAPES therefore offer the optimal starting product for fabricating high-quality strip, foil, plate, tube, profiles and forgings made of copper materials.
Industrial strip Aurubis provides a full range of copper and copper alloy strip for almost any industrial application in standard dimensions or custom made to special requirements. Coil weights and inner and outer diameters are tailor-made to follow the customers individual production processes and the requirements of their equipment.
Cable strip Strip for radio frequency and submarine cable and cable wrap for power cable have been part of the production program for decades. Aurubis core expertise is in continuous casting and rolling to thin gauges with tight tolerances and homogeneous properties. New applications – such as deep-water dynamic sea cables for floating oil and gas platforms – have been developed to serve customer needs.
Product category: Copper wire / copper alloy wire (such as brass wire or bronze wire)
Aurubis Stolberg has developed the BlueBrass® family of alloys, which combines the current standards of the electrical and automotive industries in terms of conductivity, machinability and formability with the increasing demand for lead-free products. It is excellent for producing lead-free connectors. Its electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance are fully comparable to the machining brass currently in use.
In addition to its strength, this alloys formability is much higher than brass alloys containing lead, to an extent that was previously only possible with lead-free alloys with poor machinability. You can find additional information at: www.BlueBrass.com
AURUBIS BARS & PROFILES provides copper solutions for generators. They can also be found in electrical substations, trunking systems, switchgears and conductor systems. We provide copper products for medical systems and different areas of research that use electrical energy to create a magnetic field, AC and DC motors as well as induction furnaces where the magnetic field is used for metal smelting.
Product category: Drawn or cold-rolled wire, Profile / profiled wire, Copper and copper alloys for fasteners
Drawn products manufactured by Aurubis are supplied to manufacturers of precision parts. They benefit from the broad range of alloys and dimensions. Aurubis manufactures a large selection of special profiles in addition to round, square and hexagonal wires with a wide range of dimensions. Wire is delivered on spools, in drums and as coiled material, thus offering a large selection of coil types and processing weights. Aurubis focus is on markets where the specific, conductivity-related properties of copper and copper alloys provide added value to our customers.
