The many properties of copper make it an ideal metal for a wide variety of applications. Aside from its well-known conductivity, copper is a strong metal that can be easily shaped and configured. Its corrosion and wear resistance ensures that it will be long lasting and able to endure severe and harsh conditions.
A common use for copper is as a coil because of its thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper coils are used for a variety of products such as space heaters, solenoids, and heat transfer products. The engineers, designers, and experts at Metal Associates have worked with copper for many years and are able to configure it to fit the needs of any application or product.
What is Copper Coil?
It may seem that a copper coil is a simple piece of coiled wire that can be wound and put to use. As with any form of industrial product, copper coils have to be precisely engineered to fit an application. The winding process has to be completed with precision to ensure the proper distance between the wires and the diameter of the opening.
Each product that uses copper coils requires that a certain number of turns be made to provide the correct amount of resistance. Inaccurate calculations can lead to inefficiency and possible failure of the coil or device. For this reason, the engineers at Metal Associates guarantee that they have closely examined the specification of an application such that the diameter, spacing, wire thickness, and number of turns exactly matches the design of the product where the copper coil will be used.
Why Copper Coils are Used
A major concern for society and modern business is sustainability, which is the preservation of our environment for future generations. In recent years, there has been a wide assortment of initiatives sponsored by prominent businesses in an effort to ensure the ongoing health of our society. Metal Associates leaders and team members are deeply aware of this concern and have worked diligently to be a leader in the sustainability movement.
Our dedication to sustainability can be seen in our use of copper, which is a flexible and adaptable metal that can be easily recycled and reused multiple times to be configured for a wide variety of products. Metal Associates copper coils are long lasting and durable. When they are no longer needed or reach the end of their usefulness, they can be returned, repurposed, and remanufactured.
It is this characteristic of copper coils that makes them a highly valuable asset and material for electrical products. Regardless of how copper is used, it has the sustainability to be quickly, easily, and efficiently recycled and still offer optimum performance.
