Annealing of Electrical Conductors
This webinar addresses principles of annealing, annealing of copper and aluminum wire, and annealing problems. Specific topics include definitions, structure—property changes, general concepts, engineering rules and guidelines, stages of annealing, role of work hardening; also, effects of composition, interaction of impurities, control of process variables (amount of reduction; intermediate anneals), measurement of annealing process, rate of softening, batch versus strand annealing; and annealability testing, purity and equipment problems, oxidation and staining, measurement of properties, hydrogen embrittlement, sticky wire, and frictional heating during drawing.
