Rectangular copper wires are usually produced with drawing dies. If the bare wire is to be enamelled for use in e.g. electric motors or transformers, it is wound up and then coated in several steps with a thin layer of enamel. During the winding and unwinding of the wire, damage can occur, which can lead to insulation faults in further processing and ultimately cause the failure of the winding during operation.
This results in the task of inline production. With the IPU320, FUHR has developed an economical inline profiling system with which the manufacturers of enamelled wire can meet the high demands of e.g. the automotive industry in terms of quality and price without having to spool the bare wire. The IPU320 combines rolling and profile drawing processes and is equipped with a closed control system, so that the compact machine can usually be retrofitted without having to adapt the existing system.
