extra-low oxygen content CuOF copper rod

Rautomead will be presenting its new model RS 3000SX continuous casting machine for the manufacture of extra-low oxygen content CuOF rod. Rautomead’s standard graphite furnace technology will produce low oxygen CuOFE (<5ppm) copper rod which is suitable for most oxygen-free wire applications. Technical requirements from the automotive industry are driving demands for even lower oxygen content copper rod, e.g. for use in the manufacture of high efficiency bar wound electric motors. The enhanced graphite crucible electric resistance furnace design of the RS 3000SX, combined with modified tooling and production techniques, improves the oxygen reduction capability of the graphite technology system to produce extra-low oxygen content copper rod.

sealed lid technology for progressive alloys

Rautomead Limited will be exhibiting their sealed lid (RSL) continuous casting  technology designed for processing progressive alloy and alloys containing elements susceptible to rapid oxidation, such as CuCrZr, CuZr & CuCr.  The single furnace multi-chamber design, accurately controls and maintains the target composition by varying the feed rate of each of the constituent elements.  The liquid metal is protected from the atmosphere by being enclosed within and argon gas environment.

Equipment & Technology for production capacity from 1,000 tpyr to 5,000 tpyr.
Rod diameter from 8.0 mm to 30.0mm.

Customer reference installations located in Japan and Europe.

conductor alloy rod & CuOF rod

Rautomead will also be exhibiting its conventional open furnace model continuous casting machines which are used for the production of high purity, high quality oxygen-free copper wire rods and also conductor alloy rods such as CuMg, CuAg and CuSn. This high quality, low cost, continuous cast rod material benefits manufacturers of enamelled wires, superfine wires, LAN cables, wiring harnesses, railway wires, shaped, contact wires, CTC and transformer strips.

Equipment is available for production of 1,000 – 12,000 tonnes per year in the diameter range 8.0 – 30mm.

Sample coils can be manufactured to order and produced on the continuous casting equipment installed at the Rautomead facility in Dundee, U.K.
