Continuous casting technology for specialist wire rod applications
Rautomead will be presenting its new model “RS 3000SX” continuous casting machine for the manufacture of extra-low oxygen content CuOF rod.
Continuous casting technology for specialist wire rod applications including Ultra-Low Oxygen content copper, Copper Chrome Zirconium and Copper Magnesium.
Rautomead will be presenting its new model “RS 3000SX” continuous casting machine for the manufacture of extra-low oxygen content, CuOF rod. Rautomead 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 ultra-low oxygen content copper rod.
Rautomead will also be promoting its RSL sealed lid continuous casting technology, designed for processing progressive alloy rods such as copper chrome zirconium. Sealed Lid technology with automated feeding of cored wire enables alloying of chromium and zirconium under argon gas atmosphere during integrated melting and casting to produce coils of wire rods from 20mm to 40mm diameter.
Rautomead conventional open-furnace graphite crucible RS3000S casting machines are available for producing high-purity 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 bar wound motors, enamelled wires, superfine wires, LAN cables, wiring harnesses, railway wires, shaped, contact wires, CTC and transformer strips. Equipment is available for production of 1,000mt/a to 12,000mt/a for products from 8mm to 40mm in diameter. Sample coils can be manufactured to order and produced on the continuous casting equipment installed at the Rautomead facility in Dundee, U.K.
