Alpha-Core Inc. (Bridgeport, Conn.) extends its Flat Magnet Wire range to include wire sizes from 30 AWG to 9 AWG (0.25 mm to 3.0 mm).

The Flat Magnet Wire program comes in five standard ratios of thickness to width: 1:2, 1:2.5, 1:3, 1:3.5 and 1:4. All sizes are available on two spool sizes, 10-pound spools that measure 6x4 inches height or 20-pound spools that measure 6x8 inches; 20AWG and heavier wire gauges are also supplied on 80-pound spools with dimensions 12x8 inches.

Along with extending the range of wire sizes, the new FLEX SYSTEM allows customers to select the required cross sectional area in square mm or square mils, or in terms of wire resistance—ohms/1,000 feet or ohms/kilometer—plus the desired target width or thickness. The FLEX SYSTEM is offered at no additional cost.

The wire is produced from standard round pre-insulated magnet wire that is flattened using special equipment developed in-house with patents pending for the process. The process involves a single-step deformation of the round wire between mirror polished work surfaces. Because of only negligible stretching of the wire, the cross-sectional area is the same before and after the process. Therefore, the insulation is stressed only in one direction, and the resistance and wire gauge remain largely unchanged. Two types of insulation of the wire are available from stock.
