Copper is one of the major electrical conductors in numerous categories of electrical wiring. Copper Wire Ropes are used for various electrical and industrial uses. These Copper Wire Ropes are high tolerance Wires that compensate for quivering, expansion and contractions. Being highly flexible, these copper wire ropes or strips can be used as copper wire connectors. These copper wire ropes can be developed in different specification and material as per the customization required.
Series of steps are involved in the process of manufacturing special cables of copper. The wire manufacturers are required to follow certain quality standards in the manufacturing process. Copper wires are being largely used in both for residential as well as the commercial wiring purpose. The metal undergoes different stages before it gets transformed into the electrical wire.
The complete process of mechanizing copper wire ropes such as braided copper rope includes series of steps. Initially the copper metal is been worked upon to form metal rods that is later transformed into copper wires. The primary step involves mining and crushing of the metal. Then the procedure of grinding the crushed ore is executed, here the compressed metal is passed through large machines for transforming the copper metal into powder. The machines act on the copper metal in both the cylindrical as well as revolving manner. The waste is then removed from it.
Then the copper metal is handled upon for converting it in to pure copper cathode by applying steps such as electro captivating process, leaching, smelting and electrolytic refining. Through the leaching process the weak copper sulfate solution is formed which is treated in an electrolytic process tank. This entire process is known as electro winning or captivating. The process of smelting i.e. changing the oxidation condition and getting ninety nine percent pure copper metal after purification is completed. Then process of electrolytic refining is carried out hence forming cathodes that are finally casted into Copper wire rods. Once the copper metal rods are formed the process of drawing copper wires is initiated. The copper rods are pulled from the drawing die with narrower ends that makes possible the copper rods to shrink in diameter and to become longer in length. The entire process is repeated several times thus progressively dropping the diameter of the copper wire.
After applying pressure, it is time for one of the most important part of copper wire development which is famously known as annealing process. Here heat is applied to the wires that are formed, and the process is designed for bringing the much required flexibility to the copper wire opes. In this process the copper wire undergoes under an electric furnace for retrieval purpose and retaining flexibility that has been lost in the drawing process. After this step the next step is to electroplate which is optional for constructing different types of special cables famous as tinned cables, braided copper ropes or coated copper wires. Next step is to re-crystallize the copper metal during the process of annealing and after which copper wire ropes are in ready to use condition.
