    Hello Mr ikiz

    When we were re-drawing electro-tinned copper wire, we were using a Syncro C-13 drawing machine with ceramic rings and a Syncro C-3 electric AC annealer. As I recall, the last three dies were new natural diamond and the balance of the dies were high new polish carbide. All dies had the standard angles for copper wire. The drawing lubricant was Lusol WD-1 synthetic and had a slightly higher than normal concentration as that recommended forthe intermediate drawing of copper wire.

    That was long ago, before nano diamond dies and polycrystalline diamond dies (Which of course would have been a disaster.) If you have some other experience with re-drawing tinned copper wire, I am sure that we would all be appreciate of your understanding , of dies and experience..

    Please provide us with your complete information.

    Thank you.

    Hello Mr. Do Van Bac,

    As you are already aware, the hot dip tinning of drawn-to-size annealed copper wire, results in a surface of the tin that is rough even though the wire passed through a wiping die.

    On the other hand when electroplating with tin on any copper wire, the tin surface is very smooth and of constant thickness as long as the wire was properly cleaned beforehand .and that the electroplating settings remained constant

    One of the major problems with electroplating however is strict environmental control so that no contaminants get into your sewer system. Closed cascading forward rinsing systems are therefore typically used.

    One problem with the drawing of tinned copper wire is the contamination drawing lubricant and annealing cooling water so that the drawing machine in question is not on some large drawing lubricant system and annealer cooling reservoir system.

    1. "After tin-plating via electroplating, does the tinned copper wire need any processes for its surface?" No as long as you have not damaged the surface in the annealer.

    2. "In the next drawing process, what will we have to pay attention to make sure the tin layer is guaranteed after drawing?" You have to inspect the final tin thickness on a statistical basis to ensure the proper thickness of tin is there. This is generally done with a good measuring microscope.

  • The conductor screen is made from XLPE and is semi-conducting in nature by the addition of carbon.. The compound can be super-smooth by having the carbon produced by burning acetylene as this gives a very small sized particulate.

    The conductor screen has two basic functions.

    (1) ]To mechanically protect the insulation from the conductor.. This prevents stress concentrations at the conductor surface of the insulation.

    (2) Because polyethylene has a larger thermal coefficient of expansion than the conductors, it will expand away from the conductor. Because the conductor screen is at the same potential as the conductor, there cannot be a flashover.

    The conductor screen and the insulation screen are simultaneously extruded with the insulation.

  • We received this by E-mail and have placed a copy here.


    Hello Sir,

    I would like to find more information regarding conductor screen for Triple extrution - 11KV power cable.

  • Peter J Stewart-Hay replied to the topic 'Wafios Coiler' in the forum.
    Hello Pete,

    My that coiler seems to be in really rough shape. Try thhis web page www.thomasnet.com/south-carolina/machine...services-2907-1.html and note that the State can be changed so you may find a repair facility closer to home. Also remember that fortunately Wafios has a facility in the USA so that some replacement parts can be ordered www.wafios.us/home/

    Kindest regards,
