Electric Motors

These motors operate due to the interaction of the magnetic field and the wound copper wires rotating, to create an electric current that power other devices.


Whether high bay, industrial low bay, traditional pendant, or metal halide the application of using copper wire to transmit power from source to fixture is common in most all plant settings.


In electric-arc welding with automation controls, an electrode wire is run through a flex hose and attached to the mechanism to control the movement of the arc.


As electricity passes through the magnet wire it creates a magnetic field. The coils in the generators are conductors and react to exposure with changing magnetic field to create a current in the wire.


Copper windings are commonly used in many motors, including those that drive industrial exhaust and/or cooling fans.


Copper wire is generally annealed and turns well, which lends itself to motor windings, like those that power a lathe.

Milling Machine

Machining copper alloys allow manufacturers to meet the specs for many 5-axis cnc applications, like a milling machine.


An increasing trend is powering forklifts with an electric motor instead of internal combustion and the magnet wire built into traction motors, mast lifts, and many other parts, plays a pivotal role.

Loading Dock

A motor inside the dock door apparatus is wound with copper wire and often controlled by a running timer to ensure efficient opening and closing.
