MINING

Elcowire is working with the eco-friendliest mines in the world, together we are finding solutions to minimize the climate impact of our supply chain.

Our contact wires power electrified trucks at the mine, as well as the trains that deliver copper to our production sites.

We produce and deliver sustainable products with high quality and low CO2footprint to our customers, and when the final application needs to be replaced, the copper is returned to a recycling process and reused in our copper production:

A new product with high quality and low CO2footprint is produced and delivered to our customers.

Producing new products from existing copper products in applications that needs to be replaced, instead of taking raw material from the mine, is what we call: Urban mining.

TECHNICAL KNOW HOW

Elcowire’s drawn wire products are made of Elcowire’s own copper wire rod and comply with the highest quality requirements. We have a completely integrated and closed cycle which we keep in our hands, starting with the production of our own wire rod and with good quality wire rod we produce outstanding product variety of drawn wires, with excellent drawability, conductivity, product flexibility and surface.

Our upstream technologies to produce wire rod guarantee that every application receives exactly the right material. This sets a high standard in the market. Elcowire sells semi-finished wire products at every level of finish. That allows our customers to conduct their own business flexibly and in their own way, thereby gaining a competitive advantage.

Based on the experience of 200 years we manufacture bare and tinned wires in different shapes. Starting from a single wire, drawing up to 16 multiwires simultaneously we continue to produce bunches and strands followed by testing, packaging and transportation.

All our drawn wire products are supplied in specially made, standard-compliant and secure packaging. Our packaging solutions guarantee retention of shape ensuring that product’s properties are preserved to the outmost after leaving the factory and during the utilization of our products in the customer’s downstream process.

We produce our drawn wires in pure copper and alloys according to European and international standards or to the specifications defined by our customers. And it’s a part of our mission to support our customers to develop new specifications and to optimize existing products. In that way we create significant opportunities to make products with outstanding characteristics made for specific purposes and targets.

QUALITY

Today we are a leading supplier in Europe, in the aspect of drawing, tinning, bunching and stranding. We installed all the test equipment and procedures needed to check fulfilment of the requirements of common wire standards like EN 13602 and individual customer's specifications.

Our activities, our business processes and structures are based on well-established management systems for quality ISO 9001:2015, environment ISO 14001:2015 and energy ISO 50001:2018 and we also meet the high requirements set by the automotive quality standard IATF 16949.

LOW-CARBON COPPER

Half of the carbon emissions over its production processes, compared to the global average footprint for standard copper.

Low-carbon Copper is made possible through production that has undergone a substantial transformation due to electrification and automation of various stages of the process.

The Low-carbon Copper has also been made possible by a very efficient ore concentration process and a world-class green energy mix. The result is copper wire that has a low impact on nature and the climate.

The significantly lowe r CO2 emissions of the Low-carbon Copper are verified through several validation processes. The reporting protocol that is used for verification is the Greenhouse Gas Protocol – Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard.

The product is also validated and reviewed against the general principles in ISO 14064-3 Standard.

Environmental declarations

Environmental declarations have been developed for Elcowire’s products, including Low-carbon Copper.

Our footprint is verified through mass balance-based self-declarations for Low-carbon Copper Wire Rod and Low-carbon Copper Profiles, as per the framework in ISO 14021.

This is a first important milestone for Elcowire and the next step is to perform calculations of the carbon footprint for drawn wire products.

Elcowire aims to be a sustainability leader in its business, and therefore the carbon footprint is strategically important.

TERMS OF TURNS

PACKAGE SPECIFICATIONS

The direction in which stranded wire and wire rope is twisted is indicated by the letters S and Z. Regardless of which side you look at it from , the direction i salways the same:

S= left twist, Z= right twist.

CONCENTRIC STRANDED WIRE

The strands of concentrically structured stranded wire have a precisely defined position around the core of the wire. That ensures an absolutely regular structure.

Concentric stranded wire: 19-strand 37-strand

7-strand

LAY LENGTH

The lay length is the length along the axis of a cable which an element of the wire needs to twist one whole time around that axis. It is defined either in mm or as a multiple of the diameter of the stranded wire.

STRANDED WIRE

We supply bunched stranded wires and concentric stranded wire: soft annealed bare or tinned using pure tin in lay direction S or Z.

BUNCHED STRANDED WIRES

Numerous strands or bundles of wires are bunched together. The strands within the wire do not have any particular order; their position in relation to one another changes constantly along the length of the wire.

For concentric stranded wire with more than seven strands we different between four different types in terms of lay length:

Unilay: True concentric:

WIRE ROPE:

Wire rope is either flexible or rigid. it is available bare or tinned (using pure tin), wound in lay direction S or Z, sealed or unsealed, soft or hard.

STRUCTURES:

7-strand= 1 + 6

19-strand= 1 + 6+ 12

37 strand= 1 + 6 + 12 + 18

61 strand= 1 + 6 + 12 + 18 + 24

This is wire rope with a symmetrical structure consisting of and wound using pre-stranded wires. The following variations of this type of stranding are available. STRANDED WIRE ROPEL

EQUAL LAY ROPE:

The lay direction of the pre-stranded wire and the rope itself are the same. The diameter of wire ropes made this way is smaller than reverse lay and ordinary lay ropes.

REVERSE LAY ROPE:

The lay direction of the pre-stranded wires is the same as their position and it changes from layer to layer.

CROSS LAY ROPE:

The lay direction of the pre-stranded wires is counter to their position and changes from layer to layer.

Lay directions can also oppose, e.g. Equal lay rope in Z throughout.

Equal lay:

WELDING WIRE MADE OF CU-ETP OR CU-OF

ACCORDING TO DIN EN 13602

TIN, CAN AND VENTILATION DUCT

FIRMLY WELDED WITH ELCOWIRE

In many regions of the world packaging made of metal is common.

Fruit, vegetable and edible oil can be better protected from light and temperature in tins and cans for a long time.

Flammable substances such as paints, varnishes and technical oils can be stored safely in C anisters and aerosol cans.

A can is the perfect sustainable packaging.

Air ventilations systems define the future standard in modern buildings. They create a healthy environment for the people living and working inside there. And they support to reduce the consumption of energy in those buildings.

Copper welding wire is indispensable for the production of cans and ventilation ducts.

The high quality of our welding wire, its oustanding conductivity and circularity as well as its stable mechanical properties allow to make these products with a high processing speed above the common state of the art level. And after its utilisation the wire starts a second career in the recycling process.

It is a sustainable product for sustainable applications.

COPPER ALTERNATIVES

OUR SOLUTIONS ARE AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT IN THE ELECTRICAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE INDUSTRIES. WITH RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND FUTURE GENERATIONS, WE ARE DEVELOPING ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE YOU WITH OUTSTANDING ENERGY-SAVING PRODUCTS WITH MAXIMUM CIRCULARITY.

STANDARD COPPER

Our copper is responsible sourced to prevent abuses of human rights, avoid contributing to conflicts, as well as safeguarding health and safety of miners in the supply chain.

Our cathodes are LME Grade A and in accordance with the standard ASTM B115, or EN 1978.

LOW-CARBON COPPER

The Low-carbon Copper has less than half of the CO2 emissions per kg copper compared to standard copper. The reduced CO2 emissions of our Low-carbon Copper have been validated scientifically and will play an important role in the transition, to achieve the goal of net-zero CO2 emission by 2050 set by the EU. The carbon emissions reduction by using Low-carbon Copper is based on using copper mines with electrified production, Elcowire's lean prodution methods, very efficient ore concentration process and a world-class green energy mix.

Elcowire sets the example by producing semi-fiished and finished products that have a low impact on nature and climate.

RECYCLED COPPER

One of the most significant benefits of copper is its recyclability. Copper is a highly sought-after material in the recycling industry because it can be recycled over and over again without losing its quality or purity. This means that copper can be reused in new products, reducing the need for mining and extraction of new copper ore. Recycling copper also reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions associated with copper production, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Elcowire's waste management and processing of materials are focused on going from linear flows to circular flows, supporting the core of a circular economy.
